The Portrait and the Actor

I am relatively new to portraiture, and how unfortunate that may well be! It’s a brilliant photographic discipline and one I ve grown greatly attached to. My! how I underestimated its power. Portraits of the documentary sort will arrive here soon.

These shots were taken for an aspiring actor and actress. The set-up was simple to say the least and comprised merely a sofa, a window, window ledge, and quite necessarily, a face. Natural light and a neutral backdrop also helped.

I am keen to get some more head shots under my belt so do get in contact if at all interested.

Both images cropped to 8×10.

The Portraits

Portraiture is one photographic discipline that I ve seldom attempted in its purist form, i.e the head shot.

Earlier this week I was asked to pop over to the see guys of Sayonemedia, a group specialising in manufacturing journalism. They wanted photos of the team to go in the next edition of their magazine, The Manufacturer.

We decided to take the shots outside and allow all those involved to take some time away from the office. The light fluctuated and the wind blew hair but it was still desirable – and I don’t have the pleasure of owning a studio yet!

Portraiture – or head shots – will from now on be a larger focus in my work than previously. I have been idiotically oblivious to the power of insight allowed to you through a very simple style of photo.

Here are but a few.
