Vancouver Portrait Photography

Effective portrait photography has to be a balance of technical prowess from the photographer and the ability to capture something in the subject that renders them as natural. That dance, the merging of those skills is what is the art of the portrait to me.

A relationship needs to be built between both the subject and the photographer. “When photographing portraits of people of influence that relationship can only be built within 10 minutes, so the photographer needs to be a conversation artist if you will.” - Yousuf Karsh. I agree with this, and often subjects of mine only have 10minutes to give me, however given a choice I would rather have at least an hour with my subjects.
