Ashkan Image is a team of photographers in Houston.
We are a team of Houston Photographers and artists. Our photography has been used in magazines such as Houston CityBook and Outsmart magazine, and more. We have also photographed well-known dancers of the Houston Ballet, such as Harper Watters and Karina Gonzalez, and had our images of them used in various Houston publications.
Our photography studio is state-of-the-art and located in the heart of Houston’s Fine Art community. Our background and experience is in Fine Art Dance Photography, which makes us able to create unique images for any vision.
We provide headshots for casting and business needs, portrait sessions for Fashion and editorial use, and of course, dance photography.
What Makes Us Different from other Editorial Photographers in Houston?
Our ability to create images that vary significantly in style is our passion. Our style is very simple: movement. Lighting, colors, and more, we can tailor to our unique clients to express their vision through our distinct style of movement.
Our Photography Studio has been curated to include cutting-edge equipment. We also are very proud to have working relationships with some of Houston’s top Hair and Makeup Artists, stylists, and more.
Our photography studio includes a large variety of backdrop colors and canvases, a changing area, and more.
Our live monitor during the shoot allows you to watch each image as it’s being captured. This is an amenity that our clients adore because they’re able to give critique while we shoot to ensure they love what they look like, and get exactly what they’re looking for.
For certain Sessions, we also have a large, designer wardrobe collection from local Houston designers. Ask us about it!
Due to our experience in Fine Art Photography, our Houston Photographers are able to capture not only the basics but can add a creative element to all imagery that sets it apart from the rest in quality and uniqueness. This allows us to create timeless and high-class images that add a sophisticated edge to any project.
We are also located in the Sawyer Yard community, with access to various other outdoor and studio locations as well if variety is needed. See our Houston CityBook cover-shoot for an example of our diverse styles.
Our dance photography experience, too, allows us full command of candid movement, and we can create images full of life.
We are well known for our cover images for Houston Citybook, and are highly experienced in both editorial and fashion photography. Our large selection of color backdrops, our live viewing monitor, and other studio amenities make us a perfect choice as Houston photographers.
If you or your business are looking for professional headshots we have experience creating exceptional headshots for all any needs. Our abilities range from classic corporate headshot photography to creative headshots for those looking for careers in entertainment and more.
Casting Headshot Photography
Casting Headshot photography is very important for those in the entertainment industry, particularly due to what those photographs can communicate to a casting director. You want to make certain you’re not only capturing your looks but showing the diversity of your personality.
Because of our experience working with actors and dancers, we truly value the performance above all else. We can capture your personality, and showcase your energy in a way that will set you apart during casting auditions.
We have been described as Houston photographers with unparalleled quality in the realm of product photography. This is due to our expertise in fine art and Dance Photography. We can bring products to life with creativity, sophistication, and playful precision.
Our dance photography is what we are best known for. As a team of Houston Photographers, many of us have backgrounds in dance, some even professionally. Our dance photography is well known within the Houston Dance community, and we enjoy photographing dancers of the Houston Ballet, the American Ballet Theater, and many more.
We even have a blog for dancers in Houston: our Houston Dance Blog.
How to prepare for your Session?
For individuals interested in an editorial Session to capture themselves, preparing for your photography Session includes brainstorming on your taste in lighting, and colors so that we can create a mood that fits your unique personal expression.
Dramatic, with dark shadows. Bright and full of color. What sparks your excitement the most?
Hair and Makeup
If your Session includes hair and makeup, then find as many examples of what you’re looking for as possible. Look on Google images, Pinterest, and Instagram for looks that feel like you.
Choose what color you usually feel complements you the most. We can also choose a color together during our initial consultation as well. You can see all of our backdrop colors on our Instagram as well, for your convenience.
Are there any wardrobe pieces that you want to be photographed in? If so, bring them! We encourage our clients to bring as much wardrobe as possible so that we have a large variety to work with. We also have a designer wardrobe selection you can choose from depending on what Session you choose.
