The Portrait Pop-Up

The Portrait Pop-Up features mini portrait sessions at pop-up events in San Francisco and on the road. We believe it's the most efficient, fun and affordable way to get a portrait that you love, whether it's for your LinkedIn headshot, dating profile, website, social media or blog, you deserve to get that photo without breaking the bank.

You can expect a lifestyle portrait with a modern aesthetic, featuring natural light and a unique location as a backdrop. Sign up with a friend and make a brunch or happy hour out if it, or just pop by briefly for your assigned portrait time. Check back often for upcoming Portrait Pop-Ups on our events page.


Tory Putnam, Founder and Photographer

Tory Putnam started The Portrait Pop-Up as a passion project after realizing family and friends wanted a quick, professional portrait where they felt like themselves (without: a bridesmaid dress, sunglasses or random-hand-around-the-shoulder). She decided the answer was a fun, comfortable experience that you can join with your friends, paired with the ease of just buying a ticket and showing up. Tory hosts Pop-Ups in her home of San Francisco and on the road.

When Tory's not shooting portraits, she's working with brands to capture photos that achieve all marketing needs, whether it's web imagery, advertising or social media. She's worked with brands like Athleta, Smitten Ice Cream, Bare Snacks, Brit+Co, Yes To, Shipt, and more. You can view her projects and learn more about Tory's brand work here.
