some people take portraits.

i don’t.

taking portraits means that you have someone pose, and take a picture of them as they are making themselves look the way that they want you to see them.  any photographer can take a portrait.  hell, a $4 sticker booth can do that.

i try to capture moments.  unscripted, when someone is showing who they are rather than thinking about how they are going to show the photographer who they are.

that matters, images that capture a person’s heart and soul are hard to capture.  so no, i try not to take portraits.
