Nilas Photography is a small family-operated photography service, as well as the mothership of Wedding Photographer Guy, Darchive: Camera-Centric Creative Networking, and Portland's top rentable photo studio, Cobalt Studios.

Consisting of one photographer and his better half,  Nilas Photography is Portland's alternative photography duo, Michael and Rose. Photographic services are only the tip of the iceberg. Rose and Michael play leading roles in Portlands camera-centric scene, hosting themed and educational workshops, creating huge networking events, building community, and branching non-photographic artists into the photo community. Their main goals are to open minds and create a safe and inclusive space where clients and collaborators of all kinds can feel comfortable enough to express themselves artistically or naturally.

Opposed to the concept that photographers require a niche, Nilas Photography often favors a dark and alternative theme (when applicable), but focuses efforts on all kinds of subject matter. Lifestyle, corporate, in-studio or on-location, themed concepts, events, products, and beyond. New challenges bring new knowledge, both for applying to regular shoots and for improving our educational courses. If you don't see something listed, don't be shy to ask.

Services include, but are not limited to:

Headshots, Senior Portraits, Lifestyle Sessions, Corporate or Team Portraits, and Branding.
Themed Sessions or Mini-session events.
Conceptual and Fine-art Photography Projects. 
Weddings, Elopements and Engagements.
(Hundreds captured, see site)
