My favorite photos to take are of people. Ideally I can photograph someone doing something that reflects their personality. Anytime I feel like I’ve captured an aspect of someone’s style, humor, intelligence, beauty, pride, introspection, or emotion I feel really proud. I think these photographs are so much more interesting than a traditional, “pretty” photo that people generally prefer of themselves because they represent not how that person sees themselves but instead for just an instant — how another sees them. How I see them.
I created a collection of portraits I have taken that make me smile and think fondly of the person whose photo I took; you can see that collection here, or from the gallery section of this site. I’ll keep adding to this as I take more photos that make me smile and think fondly of the person whose photo I took.
