Portrait photography is one of my favorite forms of photography! I am fascinated by the human face. During a portrait session my goal is to capture the expression, personality, and mood of my subject. Much of my portrait photography is centered around the head shot, where the models face is the primary subject of the photograph.
It is said that the eyes are the window to the soul, and I could not agree more! My favorite photographer, Yousuf Karsh, was a master at capturing the essence of the person he photographed. As a viewer of his work you are drawn in, and I often find that I feel as if the person in the photograph has shared a special secret with me.
When I work with a person to create a portrait I strive to do the same – to make the person feel at ease in front of the camera, so that they can share.
