My view as a portrait photographer.
For many of us photography is something we love, for many it’s a hobby and for some of us it’s only business. Most of us had no clue what kind of photography we want to do at first. You buy your first camera and you try pretty much every thing before you realise what subject is your real passion. Some of us love landscape photography, some of us love architecture or product photography. I have to honestly say, I probably tried everything before I realised what kind of photography I really wanted to do. I think many of us started this way.It’s a process of learning and making mistakes and trying new things until you know what’s your favourite. Then over time you start to develop your style, master your skills. People begin to recognise your work and you start to feel confident in what you do. I knew right away that I want to photograph people and over time I have learned how to do that. I begin to do lots musicians, performers and actor headshot photography, although I wouldn’t call my self a head shots photographer or portrait photographer. I don’t limit my self to one or the other category I simply capture people in the best possible way I can. But if I had to choose between headshot photography or portrait photography I would say that portrait is more creative and give me more pleasure doing it. Of course some times it’s a struggle and you know even before you start the session that this is going to be a nightmare and you would rather give the money back than doing it. I had some one who didn’t want to smile coz of black teeth or some one who was so stiff that would have to drink a gallon of whiskey to relax a bit, but no matter what, you have to be professional and do your job best you can. Most of the time taking picture is a pleasure and this is what I love to do, and even the worst day in the field it’s much better than best day at the office. When I begin to do portrait and headshot photography I learned that beside lighting it’s equally important to coach the person in front of the camera. You have to make sure that model is relaxed and confident and it is your job to bring the model’s persona to life.and if there is one advise I can give to all of the photographers, it would be. “If you want to take better and more interesting pictures, bring your camera in front of more interesting people”
