Dale Studios, based in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, has revealed that their work is based on the belief that a portrait represents the love that people have for each other. Dale Studios is owned by Master Photographer Bob Dale, who is an Eden Prairie professional photographer with more than 40 years of experience. He believes that he is a recorder of society and he is committed to providing families with portraits that can be regarded as works of art that will be treasured throughout the years. His photography has been influenced by the kind of paintings used to portray people from hundreds of years ago. He believes that the portrait photographs he is able to capture with his camera freeze moments of time, thereby creating a window through which future generations can catch a glimpse of the past.
Bob Dale himself says, “I love creating portraits where people realize that they actually do look better than they think they do. I help boost the self-esteem of everyone and help people be more accepting of themselves. We all need to be better to ourselves. I desire to create a portrait that shows a mood or emotion seldom seen but much admired. To show a part of a person's soul.”
Bob Dale points out that the Dale Studios photography that they provide is portrait art that is able to capture and represent the love that family members have for each other. For instance, it can show the eternal love that parents have for their children. The portraits that he is able to provide, according to Bob Dale, are like oil paintings that offer great honor to the people in the portrait.
Bob Dale says, “Through my portraits, I show people how great they look.” His years of experience have provided him with the ability to see those fleeting moments of expression and capture them at the right time.
Bob Dale recalls that they had only one family portrait made and that was when he was 10 years old. Unfortunately, when he was 34 years old, his mother was diagnosed with leukemia, which caused them to have a family portrait taken. It was not really a great portrait because of the emotion that was clearly evident in his father’s face. It was then that he realized that time flies and that families are missing out when they fail to have a portrait taken when things are going great in their life. People tend to feel that they are too busy to get a family portrait taken during those times, not realizing that those precious moments will soon pass away and the chance may forever be gone.
That is why Bob Dale decided to provide portrait photography, to allow families to capture those wonderful moments in their life. He believes that his portraits are able to represent love and connection. And aside from his portraits being works of art that represent people’s love for each other, he also believes that he is able to help people feel good about themselves. He points out that he loves the way he is able to create portraits that make people really look better than they thought. In this way, he is able to boost their self-confidence and self-esteem, allow them to be more accepting of themselves. He also wants to be is able to create a portrait where a mood or emotion seldom is seen is captured, showing a part of the person’s soul that can be very much admired.
The majority of his clients agree that Bob Dales is really able to capture great portraits. For example, Lori H. gave the studio a five-star rating and said, “Our portrait experience was great! Bob was so accommodating of our request to have some casual photos with motorcycle gear. He's a great guy with a great sense of humor! I would definitely recommend him and his expertise.”
