Conceptual Portraits

Conceptual portraits are lifestyle portraits pushed one step further. Conceptual portraits are designed around a theme and built from the ground up. Once the theme or idea has been developed, props, locations, and clothing are sought out and all the elements are brought together in the final portrait. A conceptual portrait or portrait series is very unique and a one of a kind piece of art.

About Len Grinke Photography

Len Grinke Photography is a North Vancouver based boutique studio offering award winning business portraits, conceptual lifestyle portraits, and family portraits.

With over 30 years experience in photographing portraits, Len has the expertise needed to photograph people in all situations - both individually and in groups. So, wether your looking for a corporate headshot or an extended family portrait, Len can create it for you.

One of the biggest challenges in creating a portrait is getting the people to look natural and relaxed. Most people are not comfortable in a studio situation so Len prefers to go on location to create a portrait. When you are in your own environment or at a location that is special to you, you will be more relaxed and comfortable, which will show in the portrait.  This is why Len Grinke Photography creates most of their portraits on location. Of course if you have to have that studio "look", Len can do that for you as well.

Len is an Accredited member of the Professional Photographers of Canada and holds the honour of Craftsman of the Photographic Arts. He also teaches photography at a local college and runs photography workshops.

Meet Len Grinke


I became a professional photographer in 1984 opening a studio in North Vancouver, BC, Canada. Specializing as a photographer of people, I began my career in portrait photography and wedding photography. This path has led me to many great adventures and the opportunity to study and learn with some of the worlds best photographers. Around the turn of the century (makes it sound like a long time ago) I packed up the analog camera and took the plunge into digital photography. This has been my medium of choice ever since.
