About portrait photographer in Houston

My name is Dmitry and I am the founder of Auradius Photography. I am commercial portrait, lifestyle and fine art photographer. My fine art landscape and travel photographs were licensed and used by numerous news agencies, travel companies, entertainment platforms, and tourist blogs. I was doing photography for as long as I could remember. It all started when, as a small child, I received an old film camera from my Dad as a present and won a local photo contest in my school with it. Over the years, as I matured and dabbled in many genres, photography grew to be more than just a hobby for me. It became my life passion.

Thanks to traveling, yet another passion of mine, I had a lot of opportunities to work with people from different parts of the world and shoot in various settings and environments. During my career, I visited more than 30 countries and have been on all continents except Antarctica and Australia. Currently, I am based in Houston, Texas, but I still travel frequently around the world and will never cease to be amazed by all the interesting people and exciting new places which I see through the lens of my camera.

My philosophy

I see photography as an art which allows me to capture people at their best moments, preserving them as precious memories. I value all types of portrait genres, often combining different styles and techniques in my work depending on the particular project. However, my favorite style is to make portraits with bright light, vibrant colors, and often outdoor (especially if there is access to an interesting location). I like to experiment and bring nontraditional elements to my works such as interesting costumes or nonconventional styling. When possible, I try to introduce elements of fine art into my portraits, capitalizing on my vast experience in landscape photography. As an artist, I like when my works induce positive emotions in people.

Main services

I offer a wide spectrum of professional photography, retouching, and educational services. My clients enjoy a high level of service, full confidentiality, and an individualized approach. Below is the noninclusive list of some of the services I offer and more details can be found here:

I have a fully equipped 180 sq. ft. personal photo studio based in south Houston and I also have shared access to a bigger studio. I do work in different locations of the Greater Houston area. Depending on the particular assignment, I can arrange for professional makeup artist, hair stylist, and/or fashion consultant. I accept off-site assignments but travel arrangements should be discussed in advance to allow time for schedule planning.

I am also interested in collaboration on TFP terms with both established and aspiring models for some of my commercial and non-commercial fine art photography projects.
