APPROACH WHEN CAPTURING PORTRAITS


I am passionate about photographing people. I try to be a storyteller and I do it through pictures.

I aim to develop a strong feeling and proximity to my subjects. When you trust me you will give a lot more. You will feel more and be more responsive. Open to take risks. My aim is to reach a point where I am able to capture genuine moments and take you to a place you didn’t know.

I’m interested in sincerity and feelings. Genuine laughter is good. I find smiley photos mundane. It can ruin the rest of a photo. There is so much to see in photos. Our most interesting part is our face. It is good to see your skin come through and not too much else. I prefer to capture those meaningful layers that are too often obscured. I find black and white photos get under the skin. Colour is always on the surface.

I don’t use a tripod as I’m always looking for an encompassing moment. Spontaneity.

Photography is a fantastic means of expressing yourself, be it your headshot, individual, corporate, commercial or family portrait.
