Like Stepping Out of a Magazine
We specialize in magazine inspired McKinney Senior pictures and Fashion Sports Portraits. Inspired by some of our favorite magazines like Vanity Fair, Sports Illustrated, and Vogue. We strive to make this truly an amazing experience.
Are you tired of boring senior portraits that don't represent your personality?
So are we. Don’t worry we are getting rid of all of that. The very first thing we do is to sit with you to learn what YOU would love from your Senior Experience! It’s all about you.
How are we going to serve you?
STEP 1: DISCOVERY
Each senior is unique and we want to know all about them and your relationship as a family so that we can create something that truly represents your senior. What are their interests? What are they passionate about? What is their personal style?
We want to get to know who they are so we can tell their story. This starts with a phone call, followed by an in-person meeting to plan your McKinney senior pictures.
STEP 2: PHOTO EXPERIENCE
Senior Pictures are all about having an amazing High School experience. Our team will be on hand to make that happen. Throughout the photo shoot, we will help with wardrobe, how to pose, picking the best scenery, and using our mastery of lighting to sculpt your photos.
Each photoshoot is approximately 2 hours in length and start closest to sunrise and sunset for the best possible lighting of the day.
We bring our lighting assistants to every photoshoot to help us create our beautiful lit portraits.
STEP 3: DESIGN
This is the most exciting part of your experience, seeing all of your amazing portraits for the very first time in a cinematic presentation!
This presentation is done right in the comfort of your own home and is ready as early as 24 hours from your photoshoot.
This is also your ordering appointment where we will help you design and create your perfect collection of favorite photographs and make them into beautiful wall art displays, albums, and prints
Meet the Owner
Dallas Portrait Photographer - Jeff Dietz
Hi, I am Jeff, the owner of Jeff Dietz Photography.
I am a movie-holic. I simply can’t get enough. When I am not working or attempting to cook a new meal, you will probably catch me watching movies.
I get a lot of inspiration from movies that carries over to my photography. But overall they are just a ton of fun. Some of my favorites are anything by Christopher Nolan, Karate Kid, Garden State, Back to the Future, Superhero movies, The Big Lebowski, and so many more!
Traveling across the world is a goal of mine. This past year I got to spend almost a month exploring Italy. There are so many more places on my bucket list.
A little-known fact about me is that I use to be a drummer, guitar player, and singer since I was in the 5th grade. I started a music company when I was 18 in college, promoting bands and concerts, which is actually where my love of photography began.
Music is still a huge passion of mine, and I claim to have one of the most eclectic iTunes music collection that you will find. Everything from Scottish rock to rap and everything in between.
I truly love what I do and am so happy that we decided to become Dallas’ only photography studio that specializes in photographing men. I can’t wait to work with your student in creating something truly amazing and one of a kind.
Look & Feel of Your Senior Pictures
We specialize in an editorial magazine style of portraits. What on earth does that mean? The best way to describe it is they are inspired by fashion magazines like GQ, Vanity Fair, Vogue, Sports Illustrated and others.
Master of Photographic Lighting
The lighting plays a big role in the look and feel of this style of senior pictures. We have studied for over 15 years to become a master of lighting portraits, having learned from some of the best photographers in the world, even including someone that worked alongside Annie Leibovitz. I have always been inspired by the great portrait photographers of our time like Richard Avedon, Joey L, Irving Penn and others. Proper lighting can make or break a photograph.
It’s your decision as to the look and style you would like for your pictures. There are local parks all over Dallas Fort Worth as well as being able to use local athletic fields at your schools for the sports portraits. You likely have ideas for outdoors that we haven’t even thought of. We encourage you to discuss this at our consultation and think of areas that have a special meaning to you.
We can actually go anywhere in the world for an outdoor photo shoot (some travel costs may be added). And when we mean anywhere in the world, we are not kidding. What about going to Venice Italy, Barcelona, or Paris France for your senior portraits? We have a passport and are ready to go!
We Specialize in Senior Portraits for Guys
Photographing men, and truly giving them a luxurious and fun experience that they will love, really is something that is overlooked in the industry. Men are treated as if they don’t care about the photoshoot. We believe differently. We believe that men, just like women, want to have fun with their Dallas senior pictures.
The parents of senior boys love what we do to help their sons look their best.

About the Studio
Jeff Dietz Photography has fast become one of the premier Dallas Portrait Photographers. Opening its doors in Scranton Pennsylvania in 2006, we quickly became one of the leading wedding photographers on the East Coast, winning multiple international awards and publications.
In 2016, we picked up and moved to the great state of texas to focus on Fashion inspired Senior Portraits for men and athletes and created the Fashion Sports Portrait.
All of our photoshoots happen on location. Whether this is the ball field, in the city, or even in your backyard is completely up to you and your style.
After the photoshoot, we come right to you in the comfort of your own home to present the photographs for the first time and to help you complete the purchase of your artwork.
The in-home experience provides many advantages in helping you select your artwork. The key benefit is that we are theree in your home to help you select pieces of artwork that will be a perfect fit on your walls.
No location is too far or out of reach.
Along with believing in a high-quality experience and customer service, we also believe in giving back. Our current charity project involves donating $100 from every senior portrait booking to benefit the Discovery Group at the Center for Brain Health at University of Texas Dallas. Here they help people in the early stages of Alzheimer’s and dementia to be able to function in their daily lives and increase brain function through interactive lessons and group learning.
The completion of your McKinney Senior Pictures is the presentation of your photographs at the photo premiere. Here we will help you select your favorite senior pictures and design artwork that will live in your home forever. We have everything to offer from absolutely stunning Wall Art collections and individual art prints to handmade leather albums and print boxes.
