When photographer Cory Jackson takes photos, he aims his lens to capture the essence and personality of his subjects. That’s why you won’t see him working in an artificial studio setting or forcing awkward props into clients’ hands. Instead, he works with his subjects to find a location that they’ll feel comfortable in and coaxes out natural poses and facial expressions. If you don’t have a spot in mind, he’ll help you find a good fit; with three years of on-location photography, he’s built quite a library of mood-suiting background locations, such as flower-covered meadows or train tracks. Whether it’s snapping senior photos, a new baby’s grin, or engagement photos, Cory’s done it all, as seen on his blog.
