Mobile photography business specializes in portraits


Operating out of his Picacho Hills home, Lee Miles operates Special Scenes Photography for clients seeking professional photography services, with an emphasis on posed portraits.

Although he has no regular employees, Miles said he frequently hires photography assistants and additional photographers on a contract labor basis, based on need.

Miles said he obtained his business license in June 2020, but Special Scenes Photography has been “an embryo since January 2020.”

Like every other business owner, Miles said he has had to come to terms with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Rather than using a pre-COVID-19 traditional business sales model, Special Scenes Photography has adopted a flexible cost option more suited to people and businesses financially impacted by the pandemic and other economic factors,” he said. “This customer-centric perspective aligns perfectly with our business philosophy of being community-service oriented.”

Miles said Special Scenes Photography “is a mobile photography studio that comes to [its clients].”

“Additionally,” he said, “we are the area’s only professional photography services provider who offers services basically based on what our clients can afford. 

For occasional deals and bundled promotions, Miles said he even offers a pay-what-you-want option. One such offer currently available is what he calls “pandemic porch pictures.” The promotion runs through Aug. 25.
