31 Beautiful Examples of Portrait Photography

We are always trying to cross a lot of different types of inspirations on Inspiredology. We tend to post more on web design, probably because I am a web designer first and for most. If you are a consistent reader of Inspiredology, you will know that we try to dab in everything, movie posters, logos, business cards and photography. Photography is always been a good topic to post on, I think there are more photographers out there then web designers, illustrators and graphic designers. We have featured a few different types of photography; National Geographic, Under Water, Aerial, Tilt Shift and many more.

I thought it would be fun to post some Portraits, the expressions captured in these photographs are fantastic. Some are quirky, some are more subtle and standard, while others are simply beautiful.

  • Very beautiful pic’s. As a novice photographer I am very inspired by these pictures.

  • magnificent portraits. I really like them.

  • A great list but I can’t imagine you got permission from all of those people to use their images….

  • John R. – I am not taking credit for their work – I am advertising their work – each photographer will get more traffic from being published on the blog.

    This blog congratulates and showcases those photographers, as a photographer yourself – would you not want to be showcased on blogs – that would help brand yourself, and bring a different audience to your site?

  • While I may like to be featured on a blog my images can not be published without written consent. Meaning you have to ask first. Copyright law does not mean you get to decide if these photographers would benefit from being featured, you have to ask then if your given consent you may publish the images.

  • very good. I like the way you present your content.

  • There are some excellent portraits above i like the variety in styles, content and approach to the subject. Some are conventional whilst others are individual and not how you would expect a portrait to be set out.

  • The forth one down of the man holding the cigarette is gorgeous. That can’t be all just photography without digital enhancement, could it?…if so then I am overwhelmingly impressed.

  • Mrs Christine Frame

    I love these portraits. So full of life. I can almost reach out and touch them. I love them.

  • Greg

    Thanks for sharing, those are stunning.

    Dina, the 4th picture with the man smoking does involve a LOT of digital enhancement. It’s using a technique called HDR where you take multiple shot where you expose both shadows and highlights, then combine them to create a picture showing incredible depth and detail.

  • A great list but I can’t imagine you got permission from all of those people to use their images….

  • Greg,
    Yah, I have just recently gotten into bit of photography and have been learning all about HDR. This article actually inspired me. 🙂

  • There are several ways of finding cheap used cars for sale, but selecting the right one is very difficult. Initially you have to decide about what kind or type of vehicle you want such as convertibles, coupes, sedans, roadsters, sport utility vehicles, multi purpose vehicles, pickup trucks or minivans. For example, those who are looking for a four-door station wagon, you can start the research over the internet and find some of the old cars for sale online with local dealers, authorized dealers and classified websites. Purchasing cheap used cars in not that difficult as you just have to do a bit of research online on different websites or online forums and auctions.

    I believe portrait photography is more to the expression and…luckily if we got the soul of the subject.

  • Thanks for sharing these wonderful comic videos with us. They are really funny. Will look after for some more updates.
