About Us :: Our Studio
Tamara Lackey Studio
Our Durham, North Carolina-based portrait studio specializes in authentic lifestyle photography. Our accomplished photographers take time to get to know you, observe the interactions between you and your loved ones, and ensure that the sessions are fun and relaxed. The result is images that truly capture the essence of individual personalities, the interplay of relationships and the emotion of the moment. We offer portrait photography, commercial photography, and editorial photography and serve the Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill areas – and are available for destination shoots.
Our studio is located at Sutton Station in Durham, North Carolina, a mile and a half from Southpoint Mall – and dangerously close to Dulce Cafe, Bella Trio Day Spa, and the yummy Bocci Trattoria and Nantucket Grill. Even more concerning, The Apple Store beckons from just minutes away! A bit too well-situated of a location for photographers who love well-designed technology and all the latest new releases.
The Tamara Lackey Studio serves as our client meeting area, gallery, showroom, and shooting space that offers natural light and portrait lighting options. We are happy to discuss (in person, by phone or by skype) your preferences for the shoot, as well as offer ideas for outdoor locations (plentiful) and clothing specifics (ditto). It’s also helpful to show you our selection of framed portraits, canvas fine art pieces, couture boards and custom-designed albums.
One of our favorite parts of the entire experience is meeting with you right after we deliver your photographs from the shoot, so that we can see them projected BIG together. During this meeting we step through your chosen photographs and create a custom order that you will love for years to come.
Please note, for those who travel in for sessions and workshops: we are conveniently located minutes away from hotels and great restaurants – and are only 15 minutes from the airport.
