Capturing an expression, your subject’s energy, revealing a mood, telling something about your subject or something about the photographer is all embedded in a portrait.
Portrait photography has been around for many years and continues to be very popular. It crosses many other areas in photography such as wedding photography, fashion, editorial, photojournalism, sports, and commercial photography and is constantly changing influenced by new trends.
Now, this isn’t easy to achieve as many times people feel intimidated by the camera or sometimes the space where they want to be photographed doesn’t meet the ideal conditions.
This seminar will give you some tips on how to capture people naturally, how to make them feel at ease with the camera, and how you can add light and background elements that will allow you to add something which will make better portraits.

He has assisted photographers such as Sean Justice, Ken Collins and has worked as a portrait photographer at Radical Honesty Enterprises.
