the tradition of portraiture

a mysterious alchemy occurs…

The long and rich tradition of portraits leads deep into the history of art. Kings & queens, bankers and businessmen all sat to have their likeness preserved for posterity. A professional portrait is a declaration of independence, an affirmation of our public selves, while showing the world a glimpse into our essential selves.
I fell in love with photography for a number of reasons, but the biggest may be my love of portrait photography. In a trusting environment we can let our best selves shine forth, and warmly encounter the selves of our dreams.
A truly great portrait is a mysterious alchemy, an agreement of trust between artist and sitter.
  • Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us…
