Professional LinkedIn Headshot Photographer in Boston
Portrait photography for businesses in Boston that show professional promise, confidence and capability. When is a professional headshot more than just a photograph? When it exudes company spirit, the effects of a strong mission statement or corporate climate. A photo for a website about page, social media, publicity or even just a business card should be a portrait that inspires trust and clearly communicates who the employee is and why they love the work they do.
Taking headshots is easy; but going the extra mile and creating professional business portraits that do all of the above is a real talent, one that takes time and effort to cultivate and perfect. Cynthia has spent her entire career helping people feel comfortable presenting themselves to the world, and this shows in the level of consistent quality in her work.
Cynthia August is a commercial portrait photographer based in Boston Massachusetts. Her photography subjects represent some of the most creative and influential business owners, artists and craftsmen in New England. She specializes in natural light environmental portraits, editorial, and advertising photography. Her studio is located on Boston’s North Shore in Ipswich but her clients reach from New York to New Hampshire, Maine, and beyond.
Originally a theatrical designer, Cynthia's portrait photography blends classical art composition with the energy of the decisive moment. A life-long romance with the human story translates to empathy behind the camera and a celebratory eye for the final photograph.
“I think the best portraits give something both to the subject and the viewer. By knowing a subject’s aspiration, finding the perfect way to express it, and helping the truth reveal itself, the photographer holds a lamp up, and with it, the opportunity to visualize a higher self into being. The inspiring portrait that results is the tangible proof of its existence.”
Cynthia’s strong design background also informs her work. With her experienced eye for detail and cohesive imagery, brand identity easily extends beyond the portrait to a library of images that define a business. She will photograph products, design details, still lifes, interiors, and lifestyle images to help unify a client’s brand and make their website shine.
Cynthia lives in Ipswich with her family and loves pretty much everything about her Yankee life at the water’s edge – especially the White Mountains in October, Crane Beach in November, and Lake Winnipesaukee in August. She’s a vocalist, an award-winning actress and black belt in karate to boot. And she’s mostly okay about the snow.
