The Fenix Team
Learn About Your Photographers
Our team of portrait artists is comprised of the top talents in the Charlotte region. Each is expertly trained and qualified in our house portrait style — which is inspired by the cinematic closeup and applies the conventions of headshots for actors and models to all manner of professions. But if you have a different vision, we’re more than capable of deviating to match other styles of portraits or replicate a business’s own internal guidelines.
Everyone who works at our studio has been where you are — wanting transformative change and reaching for something new.
Ryan started Fenix Fotography as a side hustle—but after the Great Recession halted an earlier career, he refocused his life and decided to follow a new set of dreams. He leveraged skills he’d learned creating headshots for model-actor agencies into regular work for lifestyle magazines, creating fashion editorials and other types of news stories before transitioning to business periodicals where Ryan created hundreds of photographic essays featuring business, civic, and cultural leaders. Ryan has studied with some of the world’s top master photographers, including one of New York’s best-known headshot maker. His specialty areas are on-location studio headshots, environmental executive portraits, business-in-action photojournalism, and images of aircraft and architecture.
Scott has a passion for making commercial portraits that showcase people’s natural, authentic selves — something he succeeds at through a combination of technical know-how and his easy-going personality that creates trust during a headshot session. Besides being a skilled portraitist, Scott is known for creating stunning images of products, food, and motorsports. A Charlotte native, has been a part of the Queen City’s photographic community for almost two decades through his work at the Charlotte Photography Group and Biggs Camera. A well-known photography educator, Scott teaches classes at The Light Factory in Digital Photography, Large Format Film Photography, and the Wet Collodion Process, which originated in the 19th century.
Aleigha is an effervescent personality who absolutely loves working with people to capture their best genuine expressions and personality through creating a relaxed environment.
Aleigha’s headshot work has won multiple awards in one of the industry’s main online contests, which gets international participation. Additionally, she’s very comfortable managing digital imagery, having had a previous career in Video Game Design.
Before focusing her attention on headshots a specialty, Aleigha built up her camera and story-telling skills in the fast-paced and unforgiving environment of wedding photography — abilities she still taps into for our corporate events, trade show, and theatre clients.
Director of Operations & Business Development
In 2018, Michelle made the bold choice to leave a decade-long career in banking and finance to pursue entrepreneurship, taking over all the business aspects of Fenix Fotography and working to grow the studio’s capacity and systems.
Produced Excellent Images
Fenix Fotography did an excellent job and produced excellent images on short notice, which enabled me to submit them in time to be published in a magazine. They’re very encouraging and help you achieve the right pose. I absolutely recommend Fenix Fotography.
