Just over a week ago I was given an opportunity to photograph a young man for my portraits. It was an interesting experience, and it required me to think very differently. I couldn’t just dress him up in an amazing dress, you know how it is, it just wasn’t going to work.
I also got him to do some other things and this is one of the images I have just finished.
My daughter was there as well, so I did some of the two of them as well.
I like the awkwardness of the above shot. They are together, yet also a long way apart.
The work sometimes takes over and I sometimes get so much more than what I intended. I think this is how writers feel at times. This session was a total surprise and one of my favourites. I really hope to go out with both of them again some time. I will ask them to wear different clothes though.
I am finding with these sessions that people love doing them, and have so much fun. I just finished another session with a young lady who wore some of the skirts I made, and she loved wearing them so much that she didn’t want to take them off at the end. It is a great feeling for me.
I have made a Gift Voucher so people can have the session as a gift, and get some credit towards a print.
