Portrait of Kseniia Komar


This is now turning into a bit of a pokemon  game where I am slowly collecting images of all of my friends and those who have had an impact on my life.  Before taking Kseniia’s portrait, I found some beautiful images by photographer  Emily Soto who I follow. Emily  was using such amazingly soft light that the skin tones were perfect. As soon as I saw her portraits I knew that this was the way I needed to do my portrait of Kseniia.

I met Kseniia about two years ago when I was travelling back from London to Leicester after photographing a Rudimental rehearsal in some random industrial estate. At the time I was sat with my headphones in doing my usual train ride home check of images. At some point out of the corner of my eye I noticed a rather pretty lady had sat down next to me. I have always been a fan of making train friends.  We got chatting  and ended up going for a drink that evening. We have stayed in touch since and meet up from time to time. Kseniia is a lovely person and very creative, I’ve always enjoy our conversation.
