The portrait shows then Kentucky Governor Ernie Fletcher siting in his office in Frankfort, Ky. during an interview. No doubt, his office is very much like those of other governors around the country – a setting that mirrors the principles of leadership, responsibility and accessibility that the position requires. It is in Washington DC, however, that these standards are most evident. How could it possibly be otherwise? This is, after all, the home to the President, Congress and Supreme Court of the US. Naturally, Washington DC Photography will often include elements of the District’s status as the US capital and home of the Capitol. Washington DC is, however, a whole lot more than government officials, politicians and lobbyists. Examples of art and culture abound here as well, mixed in generously with the symbols of the country’s political past and present. Visitors to Washington DC can explore locations such as the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History, the World War II Memorial, the National Theatre, the Kennedy Center and the Folger Theatre. Nature is also held in high regard here and the city happily welcomes everyone who comes in spring to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom around the Tidal Basin. Make no mistake though, power is what Washington DC thrives on. It is the life-force that flows through the city’s veins. But how can you attempt to cleverly sum up all that is Washington DC? In words, you can go with something President Kennedy quoted in a 1961 speech: “Somebody once said that Washington was a city of Northern charm and Southern efficiency.” If words fail you, however, then the best Washington DC Photography professionals, like myself, are able to convey the city’s essence in pictures. Over time, I have developed a sense of how to use the ebb and flow of energy and activity in this quietly pulsating city to influence the outcome of the portraits I create.
