Welcome to Depict Studios!  This is the home for the commercial, fashion, editorial, portrait, and headshot photography of Peter D. Adams.

Starting out originally as a landscape and cityscape photographer, my photography soon segued to what is now my main involvement in photography; commercial, fashion, editorial, and professional headshots and portraits. A surprise discovery one day found I had a real love of photographing people.  Combined with my love for telling stories, things expanded rapidly into working on fashion and editorial assignments, and capturing candid or posed images of people.

My work has a major emphasis on using natural outdoor lighting techniques, gleaned from the years of perfecting my understanding of natural light in landscape and cityscape photography. This is utilized to combine the many subtleties of natures light-box, with the beauty of my subjects and environs, to create images that invite the viewer into the scene in a cinematic-like quality.

As time has progressed, I have furthermore gained extensive experience of shooting under studio lighting, to which I have learned to bring my unique look and style to any assignment, and provide work that pops from print or screen!

This is the beginning of a fantastic shoot...
