MVP Images photographer, Bill Persons, has a passion for classic photography. “I love combining the style, the lighting and the art of classical images with today’s style. I combine the look of the old masters with contemporary taste,” he says.
That blend of the old and new gives his portraits a unique style that works particularly well in photographing both formal and informal weddings.
“Your wedding photos won’t just gather dust in an album,” he promises. His creative style insures that each portrait shows the individual style of the people in it.
Persons has also gone the “old school” route in learning photography. Originally a self-taught avid amateur, he got his start in the photography business in 2002 shooting sports events including baseball, soccer and football.
When he decided to improve his skills in portrait photography in 2005, rather than heading to a photography school he studied under one of the country’s premier portrait and senior photographers, Ron Kramer of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
His apprenticeship not only taught him how to capture light, but also how to work with his clients to help them relax and enjoy their photographic session, giving his portraits a spontaneous look and feel.
Persons uses a simple, straightforward pricing structure, covering engagement, bridal session and wedding day photography. Rather than fitting each individual client into a package, he is happy to customize the price to fit the needs and style of each of his clients.
Along with wedding photography Persons also does fashion photography, classic portraits of families and children as well as commercial and event photography.
