A Fine Art Portrait should be one that correctly captures the individual being photographed, but also adds a story that compliments their personality. I aim to create works that are not like ordinary photographs that we take of our selves or our loved ones, but are special and unique, and show the subject slightly in another world.
In my Fine Art sessions, I treat the individual being photographed much like they are sitting for a painting portrait. I make sure they are comfortable, and create a beautiful flattering lighting set up, that brings out their features. I then gently guide them in their pose and expression.
I aim to create a few different looks that involve changes in lighting, clothing and mood. This creates a gallery that is varied and beautiful.
Capturing expressions that are genuine and innocent is my goal, and as the subject relaxes and becomes used to being photographed their beautiful personality emerges.
These images will be kept throughout the individuals whole lifetime. As they grow and change, they will look back on them, and their families will keep and cherish them always.
