Meet the Artist

Meet Angie: "Welcome to my website!"

Angie Knost Photography is my studio located in St. Louis County, MO. I have 20+ years experience in photography, with a focus on commercial photography, Google Business Photos 360-degree panoramic tours, and publicity headshot photos of all kinds.

My “pre-photographer” work experiences include working as a make-up artist, fashion model (for clients including Macy’s, Nordstrom, Bride’s Magazine and others) and modeling agency instructor/trainer.

I bring this related experience, in addition to a lifetime obsession with photographic learning, into every project I work on. I believe that the subject of the photo must be happy with the picture for it to be a “good picture”. A model or actor will be filled with confidence if they walk into an audition bearing a photo that is worthy of their talents. That is my prime objective, not just to take a nice picture, but to create one that you feel represents you, your business, or your product – one that you feel proud to show.

I have trained in the skill of “facial analysis” – the practice of evaluating a subject’s features and selecting facial angles, camera lenses, lighting and make-up techniques that are most flattering to their particular face. Lighting setups are tailored for each person’s features, facial shape and skin type. There is not a “cookie cutter” setup. This takes time, but I feel that my clients appreciate the care that I take in helping them present a flattering rendition of their likeness.

Overall, I’m happy when my people-photos have made a real connection with the viewer, when my food photos have made you hungry, and when my panoramic business views make you feel transported. Happy customers are the ultimate success.
