About

Founded in 2012, Lumiere is the creation of photographer Adrian Whipp. Adrian is a multi-disciplinary portrait photographer, with a focus on editorial and commercial work. Click HERE for Adrian's full portfolio.

Whilst the era of digital photography opened up a whole new world of creative possibilities, Adrian noted that it had pushed aside the world of local portrait studios. Few and far between were the opportunities to have a photograph made of a loved one that was affordable, of high quality, and most importantly; a tangible, lasting object. 

After spending a few years learning the craft of tintype photography, Adrian decided to build the Lumiere travelling portrait studio. Designed as homage to the travelling photographers of old, this full service studio and darkroom is fully equipped to shoot classic portraiture almost anywhere.

Adrian's goal with Lumiere is to introduce as many folks as possible to the magic of analog photography, and to create timeless, handmade portraits that will last for generations. Primarily based in Austin, TX, Adrian spends the summer months travelling the country, making portraits on the road. 

The Lumiere travelling studio is available for hire at all kinds of events. Contact us for more info.
