DENVER SENIOR PHOTOS
Tim GILLIES PHOTOGRAPHY
Senior year of high school is a big milestone in a young person’s life. I remember having my senior photos done (back in 2003) and there was one guy in my town that everyone went to. The same old boring poses on the same old boring backgrounds. And prices were insane! I have no idea what my parents spent on my senior portraits but I know it was a hot topic between my parents for a minute.
But, my mom still has those pictures hanging on her walls in their house. And everytime I go to my parents, I laugh at my bleached blonde hair. I looked like a member of The Backstreet Boys.
Class of 2020
Well guess what!? It’s 2019 and things have changed! I want you to be excited for your senior photos. I don’t shoot in a studio. I shoot outside in a location that fits your personality. Yes, we will do some cheesy stuff. Smiling at the camera, blah blah blah. But we will also get the fun, candid shots that you will love. And they will be great for your social media profiles too.

What to wear
Bring several outfits. Bring stuff that fits you well. Layers work great. Generally, solid colors work best but some patterns can be okay. I generally stay away from plaids, but you might be able to rock it so bring it. Leather jackets are cool. Converse are cool. Bring your favorite shirt. Jeans are usually great. Cool sneakers. Uniforms. Jerseys. I want you to feel comfortable and confident.
Send me your Pintrest ideas and we can re-create it. Want to look like Kanye or Ariana Grande? Let’s do it. I’ve got a full studio to give you that high-end fashion look. These aren’t your typical high school senior photos. Let’s go all out!
What to Bring
Bring your friends. Bring your family. Bring your pets. Whatever brings out YOU. Bring your football. Your basketball. We won’t make it cheesy, but you never know how we can be creative in the moment.
Locations for Senior Photos in Denver
You’ll have to tell me if you want something more natural or if you like urban. In 2018, kids loved the urban look but it’s totally up to you and what you prefer. I have a few favorite places I love to shoot in Denver. See my list of locations for some ideas.
Meet Your Photographer
I quit my $80K a year job in corporate finance to pursue a more creative and fulfilling life and now I get to work with people and companies who are doing amazing things and carving out their own place in this world. The outdoors is what first drew me into photography, shooting landscapes, mountain biking, rock climbing, and anything else that caught my eye. But my career in finance slowly ate away at my soul and photography took a back seat while I attempted to climb the corporate ladder.
So in 2016, I went from a Fortune 500 company to running my own business, shooting everything from tinder headshots, families, weddings, NBA players, corporate executives, and 80's cover bands. I truly love what I do and am so lucky I get to call myself a photographer.
