As many of you know I'm a landscape photographer who has fallen in love with shooting portraits. There is just something about capturing that moment with a person. Not only do I enjoy capturing images of people but I love the social aspect. As a landscape photographer I was pretty much a loner. I would scout alone and shoot alone. Sometimes spending an entire day waiting for a perfect scene to show itself. There is just something about working with a model that is so different and challenging. I'm not longer waiting for a shot to occur, or the sky to open up, or fog to roll in, i'm able place a person in an environment and create an image.
I recently had the opportunity to work with Madeline. A talented model and also a great person to grab a coffee with and share a few laughs. I had a few places in mind to shoot, but some of my favorite images came from last minute spots I thought of. I love shooting nice soft light, but i've taken it upon myself to work with harsh light and learn to make shots work no mater the condition of the light. It looks like I'll no longer waste my day waiting for that last hour of light. Hope you enjoy!
