When I look at why I love photography I can clearly see the subjects that I am drawn to; people. Whether that is people captured unawares expressing joy in a crowded party, a corporate portrait to help a person find a way of clearly representing who they are in a business capacity in a way that builds trust with their clients; a young family capturing the early moments of their life together or a woman bravely embracing her natural and honest beauty in a boudoir shoot – either for herself or for her partner.
For me there is nothing more satisfying than have a client look at a picture that I have taken and knowing that they have shown a little part of themselves to me for maybe just a fleeting moment and recognising themselves in that.
I have had the privilege of working with so many fascinating people. For my final college assignment years ago I chose to photograph people I knew in the arts, in their home or working environment. Here are some of the pictures I took. Some are more obvious in their vocation, others more subtle. I hope you enjoy them.
