Real people... Real Stories. Environmental PortraitsPosted on October 2, 2017
I enjoy people and I want to know what makes them who they are. I approach the individuals I photograph the same way. For me, a portrait session is a conversation. I usually don’t even decide how or where I am going to shoot until I meet my subject and we begin to chat. As we converse, there is a gesture, a turn of the head, a fleeting expression that somehow, to me, in that moment, captures the essence of the individual. If the timing is right, the lighting is set and the camera is focused, I click the shutter and that moment is preserved.
