Your Humble Photographer
"I Did It And So Can You"


You've waited a long time to be a SENIOR!
You deserve a portrait that you can be proud of. That's where we come in.
Starwood Photographics has been providing Fine Quality Portraiture in the
Hudson Valley for over 20 years. We proudly serve select schools located
in Dutchess, Ulster, Sullivan and Orange Counties in New York State. Tom Taft,
your photographer, will draw upon nearly 4 decades of his professional expertise to help
you feel at ease. We strive to provide a relaxed, informal and private portrait session.
OUR PORTRAIT PHILOSOPHY
Everybody deserves at least one exceptional portrait of themselves in their
lifetime. Simple, complementary colored backgrounds combined with natural,
classic and realistic posing is the most effective way to bring out the real you.
Combine that with a relaxed, honest and sincere expression that comes from your soul.
Finish with state of the art digital capture, retouching and archival printing.
Everything will be in place to give you that truly GREAT portrait
that you deserve to share with your family and friends to be treasured for generations.
At Starwood, we tend not involve the usual senior props or distractions. For us, a
senior portrait should be about you, simply and purely. We want to make each of our seniors feel

comfortable being themselves. We do not want to crowd the image with props or distracting backgrounds
