HELD IN COMMON is a photography studio founded by Ali Gradischer and is dedicated to capturing stories through the magic of film. Based in Portland, OR, Held in Common specializes in using natural light, minimal equipment, and cameras older than I am to create classic, introspective, and unapologetic visual content.
Held in Common also provides a variety of photography workshops within the Pacific Northwest region ranging from product photography for the handmade business, to cyanotype printing for the process-driven creative.
Above all, the mission behind Held in Common is a simple one. I believe that who we are, and how we present to the world, is good enough. And from this point, I seek to find the stories that tie us together. I look forward to creating with you!
