I am a Leicestershire based photographer specialising in portraiture.
I go along with the early folk who believed that a photograph steals your soul; if a picture doesn’t have a little bit of your soul in it, it’s failed as a work of art.
I take pictures because it’s a passion; with my camera and computer I try to make art - we all need to make art in some way. Art distinguishes us from other animals..
Portrait photography doesn’t depend on expensive equipment. Once you have acquired the kit to make good quality captures, improvement comes from knowing what works; from the rapport you have with your subject; and knowing what you’re trying to achieve. Patience and perseverance count for a great deal.
