An Heirloom Personality Portrait is designed to bring out the Character, Charm and Beauty of the subject. This portrait of Jeremy is a true study in Character! He is an actor, and this image was made on a movie set. I was honored to have a role in the movie that was made on an old western set... and as you know there is a lot of time waiting when making a movie! So in between 'takes' I made this Heirloom Portrait of Jeremy.
I love the gritty, almost dusty western look that I was able to infuse into this one.. the choice of clothing and the props tell the 'story'.
Who ever my portrait subject is, I feel it is important to take the time to learn about the personality of the person... let's include props, clothing, backgrounds and other people to complete the photograph that will live as a lasting memory of a moment in time.
What He Said: 'Man! This has to be my favorite Photograph of All time. I've had dozens of photographers take pictures of me and Gary Glenn definitely is the very best. This one is going on my wall! Gary Glenn is a Bloody Genius with a Camera!

Terrie Frankel is truly a Sedona Influential! This portrait of her was the first image I created for the 'Sedona Influentials' Gallery. I love this Personality Portrait of her as it really caputures the Spirit of this fantastic woman... she is such a contributor to ALL THINGS Sedona... involved in many projects and groups that make a great difference to our community. During our Pre Portrait Consultation I discovered the idea to include the American Flag and the Western Hat! Those elements really do add to the character of this Heirloom Portrait. Terrie is a one of a kind, and truly gives her heart to Sedona.
What She Said: 'I just love this wonderful portrait that Gary created for me.... Everyone asks who did your fantastic photograph? I tell them that Gary Glenn is the best Portrait Photographer In The Known Universe!'

Your personality portrait can tell a story about you at this point in time... an heirloom like this is much more memorable than a 'traditional' photograph.
