Learning photography is a long road of trial and error, learning from ones mistakes and often bending the rules of composition, once in a while.
Faces have always intrigued me. From the years of youth through to the years that show the lines on one’s face…the life experiences...to the eyes, the joy, and the hardship of life.
From working in the controlled setting of a studio to the outdoors in situations that were often less controlled. I believe in the same objective…to take a photograph that reflects something about who is in front of your lens.
This is often not so easy as it seems.
Over the years I’ve photographed models, actors, soldiers in conflict areas, to disaster sites where human tragedy is often a way of life.
It’s the eyes that I find fascinating when I take a portrait. The eyes are the soul of each of us and to make a successful portrait, look through the eyes of who is in front of your camera and tell their story.
