Creative portrait portfolio is a selection of photography work created with a more original and complex approach to art direction, lighting and editing. Resulting in a visual signature style I have crafted over the course of many years.
The constant of time always will challenge our perceptions, as everything in our world keep evolving the same apply for the visual and creative arts, innovative approach to portrait photography is the ultimate and natural direction of the genre.
Being a portrait photographer comes with certain responsibilities, like being innovative and visionary, also bold enough, in order to evolve as a better photographer – contributing to the genre of portrait photography. Inspired to capture great creative portrait photography might not be enough; rather one needs to develop skillset with creative flair allowing for a story, idea or vision to be translated into stunning visual delight – going beyond the daily ordinary of how everyone else may perceive a subject.
In this portfolio, I have selected and exhibited work showcasing my experience and ever-growing desire for breaking the boundary of ordinary as a portrait photographer, as well as my technical abilities in working with lighting, people, art direction and editing images.
Many of behind the scenes or how I captured some of the images above can be found at my photography blog page.
Achieving such style of portraiture involves, on most occasions, rather complex process, from selecting the right subject and location to set up the most appropriate lighting, and finally, editing the images captured during a portrait session. My approach involves combining skills and understanding what results I would like to capture on set so I can have a good base to extend the creative process through editing.
Setting up multi zones lighting, for increased dynamic range, with very soft transitions between highlights, mid-tones and shadows is perhaps one of the aspects defining my creative approach to photographing portraits.
My creative portraiture style can be recreated either on location or in a studio and can meet very well the purposes of the advertising, lifestyle and editorial industries. Although highlighting the suitability for certain industries, I also must admit that very often I’ve been approached by individuals who were excited to have their own personal creative portraits – there is no restriction to creativity!
