Portraits, more than any other photograph, are more than just pictures. A good portrait shows you more than just a person, but who that person is, what that person represents and where that person will go. It is the job of the photographer to capture the essence of a person and express that in a single frame.
I have always had a camera in my hand, but never did I think that I would be a photographer. Shooting portraits was a terrifying concept. But over time, my feelings towards portraiture, and photography in general, changed. What started as a hobby slowly grew into a calling. I've never been good at sketching or painting, but I can craft light.
When I'm not in my studio, I'm acting as the Features Editor for Fstoppers.com, a photo and video website started by two of my best friends Lee Morris and Patrick Hall. What started out as a tiny blog with the seemingly unreachable goal of becoming a true source of information, has since grown into one of the most popular photography websites in the world. It's been a heck of a ride, and one that has been truly memorable.
