One of the things I am striving for in my photography is capturing the essence of my clients.
What is this illusive essence?
My instincts tell me it is the authentic spirit of a man or women that the camera captures in a split second. This authentic expression can only be revealed for my camera if my client is relaxed, comfortable and they trust me implicitly.
The key word is trust.
Another way of looking at this is establishing rapport with my clients long before the camera comes out to play.
Open, warm, confident and yet approachable
Rapport is the magical ingredient that makes any relationship work. It is the glue that binds all of humanity. It is caring, loving, being vulnerable, feeling safe and relaxed to be our true natural authentic selves. I have photograph a lot of people this year and I have noticed the subtle shifts in "being" when my clients get in front of my camera. My job is to bring my clients to a point of total relaxed freedom and self expression. I love this moment, This is the moment when I hit the shutter button and capture that magical expression.
Sometimes, it can be a still moment, like in Daniella's eyes.
I must be honest and say, I love photographing women.
All woman to me are beautiful, and my impression of beauty goes way beyond the cosmetics and DNA.
I am always looking and being open to experiencing a woman's true athutentic inner beauty. This inner expression is a wonderful thing to capture. I love Daniella's eyes and stillness, I find this very attractive.
Day Day is totally at ease in front of the lens
Connecting with my clients is very important to me, this creates a foundation upon which we can collaborate and build a great photographic experience. The final images are the icing on the cake.
When I look at the images I have shot since the start of this year it encourages me even more to give of my best.
If you would like to arrange a photographic session with me, please get in touch. I look forward to our conversation and serving you.
