Portrait Photography in Philadelphia can be done in a wide variety of locations representative of the many sectors that flourish in the city. One of these is the education sector and in particular education at the tertiary level. The many educational institutions in Philadelphia are filled with minds that are eager to learn and others that are just as eager to facilitate the process. Of special note, is the University of Pennsylvania, a widely respected Ivy League institution which lays claims to being the oldest university in the US. In terms of, Portrait Photography, Philadelphia universities and colleges are often the ideal dynamic backdrop against which you can create a perfect picture. That’s because there is a synergy on tertiary campuses that is almost tangible. It is a phenomenon that is apparently independent of the campus’s location, as I have seen it occur on tertiary campuses in several different countries around the globe. This synergy, or collaborative energy, is facilitated by the lecturers and buoyed by the thirst for knowledge which brought the students there in the first place. Dr. Justin Thomas, the subject of this portrait, is certainly no stranger to this synergy. He has earned degrees in the fields of Psychology and Information Technology from the Liverpool University and University of Manchester, both in England. He is currently an Associate Professor at Zayed University’s Abu Dhabi campus in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Apart from his interactions with students, Dr. Thomas is the author of a book on Psychology and has been studying depression among Emiratis. He is also a contributor to several journals within his area of expertise. This portrait of Dr. Thomas speaks volumes, as he has the look of a man with something on his mind, something he is willing to discuss with you, sharing his knowledge and, in turn, listening intently to your views on the topic.
