Black and White Photography

The art of black and white portraits has been a favorite of CCE for years.

B&W portraits are a timeless record of something personal, and black & whites styling  is always associated with timelessness. Even plain, clear skin can look better in black and white. Although considered old fashioned, these photos are immune to changes in fashion. It’s as if it will always last.

Flattering portraits – more than anything – are the kind photos which people want to endure as they are. Your own face may age (apologies for the reminder), but you don’t want your portrait to do the same. As the saying goes “fashion may come and go, but only style remains”. CCE believes this truth applies directly to the enduring style of black and white portraits.
