I’ am George Harrington, a portrait photographer
I feel blessed to be the one behind the camera and see myself more as an art director. I have pride in how your portrait’s final artwork comes to completion.
I’d been involved in creative arts in some sense or another from my preteens. Where I did a large sculptured relief map in elementary school of South America, winning one of the top positions entered into a Seattle worlds fair exhibition. In my teens I was trading murals and art at record stores and speciality shops for albums and merchandise.
The camera intrigued me, I held a desire in wanting to learn it, cheap over the counter cameras were my introduction. As a designated picture taker for friends and family I knew there was so much more to explore.
I’d always had a love of history, folklore, art and the old word painters. A style that holds my attention is the classic to fine arts portraits. Inspired by artworks, that still holds up for hundreds of years to present day.
I love taking the time to get to know a person, their likeness and personality that will be photographed. To capture a person’s self and bringing out their story. Turning it into handmade wall portraits, for the discerning client and their cherished loved ones. Portraits are made with archival materials and inks by the highest regarded labs in the country, lasting over several lifetimes.
