This official portrait of a federal judge has a true resonance for many reasons. First,the setting of the law library with vast amounts of rulings and decisions contained within the pages of its books is a nod to the great knowledge that judges possess to achieve their positions. Secondly, the American flag appearing behind him as a classic display of patriotism. And third, an iconic leather chair where he will sit and deliberate over cases tells the story of all the unseen time in chambers in which judges do there work. And lastly, the black and white processing on the image gives a timeless quality befitting of such an old and revered profession. In our years as Southern California portrait photographers, we are used to creating ideal studio conditions in courthouses, libraries and law offices, so our subjects will always look their best posing in the work environment where they feel their most accomplished.
Location: Federal Courthouse, Los Angeles, California.
