Portraits. In my view, a portrait is an interpretation of a person s entire persona, not simply an image of a single moment in time.  One thinks of Picasso s portrait of Gertrude Stein, made in 1906, early in both of their careers.  As Picasso himself said, it was not so much a painting of what Stein looked like then, but rather what her personality conveyed  and what she would become.  Other great portraitists have included Yousuf Karsh (of Ottawa) who for years advertised his services in The New Yorker;  Annie Leibovitz, who has made her fortune specializing in celebrities in unusual situations (Whoopie Goldberg in a bathtub of milk comes to mind) and from our local area, Imogen Cunningham and Edward Weston. My personal specialty is studio portraits. I have found over my many years of experience that people are more at ease and more comfortable in the comfort and ease of my studio rather than battling wind and harsh sunlight which may be unavoidable outdoors. Of course I often work in the home of the subject   people often looks even MORE comfortable and at ease in their own environments. Naturally there is a small surcharge for bringing my lights, backdrops and other equipment to your home and setting my studio up there.
