On the Waterfront & In The Old Port
Portland’s working waterfront is one of the most iconic spots in Maine for your senior pictures.
We’ll start on the cobblestone lanes of downtown, and then work our way around the piers for that unique Maine look!
Afternoons and sunsets are preferable times for waterfront shoots, and high tide photographs the best.
Contact us today to learn more about clothing, scheduling, and pricing, and to lock in one of the few senior spots remaining!
In Our Studio
You’ll have perfect hair, and perfect lighting for your studio session, and with dozens of background and foreground combinations, no two studio sessions are ever the same.
The Studio is also where we shoot our Extreme Sports Composites, Fashion Strips, Concept Shoots, and RockStar images, and is our most popular location and the easiest to schedule!
Our studio is in an old mill building in Westbrook, where we’ve got plenty of room to get you unique images you can’t get anywhere else!
Schedule a free studio tour to see our camera room and galleries.
At The Parks
Fort Williams, Mill creek, and the Audubon Center
The Park is the place to go if you want portraits with flowers, trees, grass and sunlight.
The bright colors of tulip beds and manicured lawns form perfect backgrounds.
Or the woods and plains of the Audubon center give a great outdoorsy feel.
And at Fort Williams, we can use the ruins of military buildings, and the scenic nautical view of Casco Bay.
When you work with Focus Photography, we’ll create scenic environmental portraits; tightly cropped images; traditional headshots; and softer portraits with a gentle glow.
On The Beach
There are two different Maine beach styles – the long sandy beaches like Crescent and Popham, and the rockier shore of Maine (like Falmouth and Fort Williams have).
When we plan your senior photo shoot at the beach in Maine, we’ll ask you your preference.
The sandier beaches will have more people on them around you, and the rocky beaches will have less sand.
That’s Your Choice!
The time of day we shoot them, however, is not (your choice).
It’s natural when you think of the beach, to think about going while the sun is high in the sky. That’s when we go to the beach, right?
But that’s not when we photograph beach sessions at Focus Photography. We want your images to have the best, most flattering light possible. Doesn’t that make sense?
Our beach sessions all start one hour before sunset, and we can only do one beach shoot a day. Our calendar fills up quickly, so if you’re thinking of having your senior pictures taken at the beach, you’ll want to get scheduled as soon as possible!
Upta Camp, At the lake, At your school, and even your back yard
Over the 12 years we’ve been creating senior pictures in Maine, our clients have asked us to go to golf courses, horse stables, yacht clubs, lake houses, football fields, airport tarmacs, and back yards.
If you want a senior photo shoot completely unique to you, just pick the place.
Your Place locations may have a travel fee based on the time and cost it takes to get there. We’ll go to New York City for a senior shoot, but we won’t be able to work with any other clients that day, so there’s a little extra charge.
What Sarah Said:
“ Working with Will (at Focus) was incredible! Not only was he a lot of fun, but he really knew what he was doing. I got ‘Yearbook Pictures”, and then these other images that show so much more of my personality.”
I LOVE THE WAY I LOOK IN MY PICTURES!
“To upcoming seniors, I just have to say that you should try to do the most with Focus as you can! Go to the beach, the old port, and the studio and just have a blast with it!”
