Above all, life for a photographer cannot be a matter of indifference.
I love portrait photography.
I enjoy people intensely and I think that informs the work that I do.
My intention is always to show the person just how beautiful they really are ... without Photoshop. No intervention required. Really, show me something of your true self, something of your soul ... trust me, and I'll show you you.
Not that those words are ever stated. And as a photographer you need permeable boundaries on your own self. It's good if you're gentle. Be willing to show some of your soul too.
Portrait photography, at it's best, is an exchange. And it's about trust.
I met a remarkable woman yesterday and I can't wait to write of her work here. More to follow, just as soon as her website is up.
