176 Portraits

January 2015 is well under way.  It seems like a good time to look back at one of my favourite photography genres, portraits.

I love photographing people. A good portrait is usually the result of collaboration between photographer and subject. It may result from a few minutes of conversation. Or happen after hours spent together, chatting, planning and travelling.

I try to make authentic portraits. They happen when the person I'm photographing engages with me. A good portrait is a gift, 'given' to the photographer's lens. Those moments are awesome to experience.

I am extremely grateful to everyone in my 176 portraits collection for allowing me to photograph them.
