Portrait photography is generally thought of as taking place in a big studio with seamless walls and big lights pointing in all sorts of directions. I’ve never had the pleasure of being photographed in this way, but I imagine it would freak me out. Too much formality, too much pressure to smile. I find people are much more relaxed in a location setting – either at somewhere we’ve chosen, or in their own home, or in my home. Here’s a few pics from some of my recent portrait shoots in and around Perth.
Yvonne is a translator from Germany who needed some images to use on her marketing material. The brief could be summed up in three c’s I guess: corporate, casual, characterful. Here’s what we came up with:
Lunde and Liv are the proud parents of little Sam, one of the cutest kids ever. He was really new at the time of this shoot, and already showed a natural talent in front of the camera :) The boys going places I tell ya!
We met up with Dae-in Cha, his wife Sakiko and their little boy Eugene in Kings Park on the morning of Eugene’s first birthday. The wildflowers were just out, and Eugene got dressed up n his traditional Korean outfit especially for the occasion! Two hours of shooting and he didnt cry once… in fact he pretty much giggled the whole way through!
