about photography by db walton llc

            Our passion is to produce portraits of people at their best. If you're thinking you'd like to have a nice portrait done as soon as you lose 10 pounds, or as soon as you get that tan, don't put it off. Do it now. You look your best the way you are today (after all, tomorrow you'll be another day older). Our tag line says what we do best – CAPTURING BEAUTY. Our philosophy is everyone is beautiful. Old or young, tall or short, thin or curvy, you are who you are and we want to prove to you how beautiful you are.

            Our specialty is portraiture. As a portrait artist, we offer both photographic and painted portraits. Whether you need ,family photography, baby photography,maternity photography, senior pictures, or simply head-shots, give us a call.

            As photographers, we seek out famous photographers for our photographic training. Photography isn't our hobby, it is our profession. This isn't a casual part-time interest, it is our professional occupation. Many today offer wedding photography. Wedding photographers are a dime a dozen, but few carry liability and indemnity insurance, and even fewer portrait photographers can make this statement. (See our blog for more information: http://www.dbwalton.com/wp/2015/05/25/reason-why/ )

            Located in Palmyra, New York, Wayne County, we service all areas throughout the U.S.A. and other countries (where permissible).

            It is often asked if we do weddings. We no longer do weddings.  Don't let that stop you from contacting us, however.  We have a network of photographers who can meet your needs, and we ONLY refer clients to Certified Professional Photographers whom we know and trust.  We also offer bridal or groom portrait sessions.


            Family Portraits - whether you have a small family or a large extended family, we love family portraits.  For small and medium sized families, our studio can handle indoor group portraits.  For large families we can do on-location or outdoor family portraits.  Our photographers work well with children of all ages.  Leave getting their attention to the photographer, so mom and dad can relax in front of the camera.

            Maternity Pictures - Maternity pictures are something to be cherished.  Whether in the studio or on-location, we want you to look your absolute best in your expectant state.  Maternity pictures are meant to be heirlooms so we only provide the best in printing services for your maternity pictures.   Although owner D. Brent Walton is a male photographer, he will be respectful and accommodating during your maternity pictures session.

            Portrait Photography - Our specialty is portrait photography.  Perhaps we are a little redundant in talking about various types of portrait photography, but this is what CAPTURING BEAUTY is all about.  While many photographers are all over the map with what they do, photographer D. Brent Walton specializes in portraiture - painted and photographic.

            Senior Portraits - High school senior portraits are a must for that graduation senior.  You can have your senior portraits taken wherever you want.  We will design a session for you that will be unique.  People will ask, "Where did you get your senior portraits done?"  You can tell them you went to Wayne County, New York's only Certified Professional Photographer.  No other photographers can make that claim.

            Headshots - Business people these days need professional headshots for LinkedIn and other on-line services.  Headshots are also important to actors and actresses, as well as musicians and other performers.  We also have a mobile studio we can shoot headshots at your business.  This saves you time, wages, and money.  We also set up our studio on Fridays to cater specifically to headshots.  How many photographers do you know who do that?


            How to Become a Photographer

            We get asked about this frequently.  To become a photographer it is more than owning a camera and having a good eye.  In fact, it is about 80-90% business administration, 10-15% computer manipulation of the images, and 5-10% shooting pictures.

            Where most people fail in this industry is not knowing how much it actually cost to run a photography business, and then not making any money because they charge too little.

            Our studio owns and operates Palmyra Photographic Workshops.  We will train you in all aspects of the business.  We will custom tailor a one-on-one class for you, or you can come attend one of our photographic workshops.  By so doing you will be miles ahead of other photographers who simply don't take the time to learn about this competitive industry.

            Photographer D. Brent Walton is a Photographic Craftsman.  This is the Professional Photographers of America's designation for a photographer who has educated other photographers as well as spent time helping other photographers achieve their goals.  He is also a Certified Professional Photographers and a liaison for the CPP program, and he is serving as the President of Finger Lakes Professional Photographers (2017-2018).
