The Portrait

In his daybooks, Edward Weston wrote with some degree of fondness of the times when people would come to his studio and browse his collection of ‘heads’. What he was referring to of course, were portraits. It seems remarkable now, but in the early days of photography, photographers often sold their portraits of people as works of art.

While I don’t consider myself to be a portrait photographer, I do enjoy creating them given the opportunity – and figure sessions provide ample opportunities to capture wonderful and intimate portraits. I thought I’d share some of my recent favorites.
