ABOUT

Asheville Commercial Photography - Headshot photography, product photography - Taylor Clark Johnson

Greetings!

My name is Taylor, and I love collaborating with people to turn ideas into visual realities.

 

Asheville, North Carolina is my home – a beautiful home – I have lived here for 10 years, and I have no plans of moving. I have worked on projects from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina to Tibet, India, Hong Kong, Honduras and…. ?

 

I feel particularly drawn to projects where I get to photograph people – that’s one of my favorite things to do. My career before photography was in integrative health, yoga and meditation, with a focus and practice in presence & somatic based coaching. That previous experience has provided immeasurable value to both my clients and I. I didn’t know it at the time, but my past career paved the way for me to cultivate deeper authentic connection with people, which has been incredibly helpful in almost every shoot I have had.

 

I have a personal meditation, yoga and exercise practice that I do to stay grounded and happy in this wild world. If you’re curious, I’m happy to share more. Thank you for your time and presence here today! Please let me know if you have any questions. You can contact me by clicking here.

The Photo Studio

Located in the River Arts District of Asheville, North Carolina, and fully equipped with the lights, modifiers and backgrounds to create almost any type of studio look you could imagine. There is lighting equipment for both stills and video.

 

For projects that require a larger seamless backdrop (for couches or larger items and/or scenes) I partner with a rentable studio space on per-shoot basis.

 

I keep the studio stocked with coconut water, a few different kinds of teas (some with caffeine) and some light finger snacks. Tasty craft services can be organized for larger/longer productions.

Live Image Previewing

Included in all studio shoots is a wireless live image previewing system so you or a member of your team can see all of the photographs as they happen in real time. The included previewing system uses an iPad, and there are options for larger displays for shoots with varying preview needs.

 

With this system you don’t have to look at the tiny screen on the back of my camera, and you can provide feedback at any point in the photo shoot without having to wait to see the images.
