Update on Personal Portrait Project
My personal portrait project is well underway now and I wanted to use this blog post as a bit of a summary as to where I am now. The project has mutated a bit and had a few changes made here and there, but in essence it is the same.
I’ve chosen interesting people I know, respect and have a close relationship with as my subjects. This is a deeply personal project I’m working on as a collective ‘muse’. My commercial work is very important to me and is fed by projects like this one, where I get to explore portraiture without constraints. I’d recommend anyone in a creative role who feels they’ve hit a wall to take a little step back and make time for a project that’s just for their enjoyment. That’s when wonderful things can, and do happen.
This is where I am up to so far, I have another 10-15 people booked in over the next month too. I am really pleased that I decided to photograph each person differently. My original plan was to make the portraits more uniformed and part of a visual series.
