Taking portraits, whether they be candid or in studio, is a gentle process. It commands patience and trust between photographer and subject.
While teaching, my camera was often out and recording important moments before and during our shows. I learned a lot about portrait work from these amazing students who were both confident and vulnerable. It was essential to have a solid and respectful relationship before the camera was raised.
Fast forward to now, those experiences plus the fun of lighting are what I lean on in the studio and on location. The comfort of an individual is immediately evident or not in post-processing. The essence and story of each person is what I look for and hope to capture.
