headshot photo of Rianna by Portia Shao

My session with Positive Vista was just that…totally positive from start to finisham a television broadcaster from London who wanted to get some shots done before I moved to LA. Didn’t hold much hope when I wandered into this local photographer’s but her attitude and the outcome tipped any I’ve had. Love the shots….” — Rianna Scipio, Hollywood

Fitness model photo of Jason by Portia Shao“I have been modeling for 15+ yrs now and have worked with hundreds of photographers. Portia of Positive Vista Photography was someone that stands out as one of my favorites. Her creativity and art direction really help make for a lot of useable photos. What I like most about working with her was the calm atmosphere she presents in her studio. She takes her time and gives each photo her all. She has an excellent eye for photos as well as an amazing lighting set up. If you are looking for some high end, professional photos, this is the person to be connecting” – Jason Baca

“I came to Portia’s Positive Vista Photography & Art Studio professional headshotfor some photo tips and just fell in love with her work and approach. I
needed some personal and professional photos done to update pictures and stay current at my evolving age. For years, I have gone to other professional photographers but never got the “look” of reality that I was looking for. She coached me and made important recommendations of the best way to just relax and be me. It was fun and extremely rewarding to see the results. All photos were digitally available for immediate evaluation and to determine if additional poses would be necessary. I can say that she really knows her craft and would recommend her for those seeking a discerning touch on the portraits of their lives.” Lisa Hamil, Santa Cruz
