The Photographer & Studio Owner

A small word from our freelance photographer and studio owner.

Hi. I am Erin Paula van Beveren. I am Female, out and proud trans woman, born in 1963 in the city of Dordrecht the Netherlands. I immigrated to the USA in 1988. My spoken languages are English, Dutch and German.

Over the years I lived in Fairfax County, Newport News and Hampton, to finally settle down in Richmond.

My interest in photography started in my early years around the age of 12. I photographed in both 35mm film & slides, and created short movies with super 8mm film. While drafted in the army, I enjoyed still film photography especially the darkroom in black and white photography. In 2002 I became interested in the digital photography medium, how ever I still like to shoot and develop black & white film, in 35mm, medium and large format.

Camera Room 1 (hi-key)

This camera room is currently out of service.

The main background is a large white seamless backdrop which really brings out the attention to the subject. This backdrop is perfect for fashion and portfolio photography. We also have green screen photography available in this camera room. Most in studio commercial work is performed in this camera room as well.

Camera Room 2 (low-key)

This camera room is currently out of service.

The main backdrop is of a neutral color. This backdrop is great for beautiful dresses and bridal portraits, as well as for black and white photography. The next backdrop in this studio is commonly referred to as "old masters", meaning light in the center and going dark to the outside, creating a beautiful vignette around the subject, being it a single business headshot or a family portrait. A second old masters in brighter colors is also available. Some bright single color backgrounds for individual portraits are in this camera room as well.
