Why Personality Photography?
I’m fascinated by people. My passion is in bringing to light a person’s personality; to create images that tell a story, to evoke emotional response – a desire in the viewer to know more about the subject of the picture.
When I work with businesses, I’m very conscious of making a connection between the person in the picture and the person viewing the picture. I like to capture the essence of the person, their life and their work, to inspire viewers to take action – to get to know the person and make contact with them. To create a desire to know more.
I worked for years travelling the world as a tour guide and photographer. I became intrigued by the stories that images can tell and how the best story-telling images are composed with an artist’s eye. Light, atmosphere, the scenery or setting, placement, proportion and composition can all influence how a picture – and a person – is perceived. There’s a lot more psychology going on than you could imagine. It’s fascinating!
I’m a bit of a Personality Profile Junkie. I like to know what makes people tick before I start clicking. I’m curious to get to know your personality.
What I’ve discovered is that people don’t particularly like having “professional” photos done – it makes them nervous. They don’t know how to behave in front of the camera and they start pulling all kinds of unnatural faces and awkward poses.
I can fix that because I’m “The Joker” – not in a silly way prancing about like a jester, but in a light-hearted playful, relaxed way that will get rid of your nerves easily and help you reveal your true self. I’ll show you the pics as we take them so you will never end up with one you don’t like.
