A portrait can be many things. It can be deeply personal and non technical or highly orchestrated and commercial. It can be a fleeting moment or a 30 minute session, which can be eternity for both subject and photographer. I tend to work simply and seldom use more than two strobes to facilitate expediency and spontaneity. These editorial portraits are a selection from over a 20 year period. They include newspaper, magazine, and corporate assignments from around the world. In an editorial sense the portrait should set a tone, introduce a topic or theme, and compliment any accompanying text. Existing light is usually leveraged, but in many cases strobes are used to help create a mood. Through framing and lighting, and many times luck, the portrait evolves. It is never a "one shot" session.
