Welcome

Angie Knost Photography is my commercial studio located in St. Louis, MO. I have fourteen years of experience in photography, with a focus on commercial photography, Google Business photos 360-degree panoramic tours, and publicity photos for musicians, models and actors.

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.

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 persons 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 I take into 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 feel hungry, and when my animal photos provoke you say, “Awwww”. Pleasing customers is the ultimate success.
