Anyone with a camera and some film can "take a picture", but it takes a creative craftsman and a sensitive human being to create a portrait which helps you look your very best, and also expresses the "You" which those who love you will instantly recognize!
There are three concepts involved in creating truly fine portraiture which will be treasured for years and years.
1.- The use of light and shadow to paint and image which brings out all the good features and quietly subdues the less desirable characteristics of the subject.
2.- The use of photographic and artistic techniques to create a striking, sensitive portrait, while also designing a piece of art which you will be proud to own.
3.- It takes a warm, compassionate human being to help you feel comfortable in front of his camera. For even with items 1 and 2 above, without this important attribute, a portrait photographer can never hope to create a truly meaningful image. For most people do not feel comfortable in front of a camera, and if they are to look their best, they must feel comfortable with the portrait artist.
