Outdoor Portrait Photography provides beautiful natural backdrops to images particularly on a sunny evening at a local park. With lots of energy, even with a week of school behind him, the park made the perfect location for a portrait session with this young man. Along with mum, we explored tree lined avenues, a ruined ancient house, a riverside quay and even had some time to throw stones in a particularly huge puddle: it’s not all hard work being a photographer.
Along the way we looked for beautiful spots, beautiful light, and to capture this ‘man in the making’s’ personality. From cheeky smiles, to contemplative moments, fun moments, to laughing out loud. Running, climbing, sitting, playing, thinking, smiling, a little posing and just being proud of his gate climbing skills! It was a great way to document a little slice of life for this young man, his family and him with portraits I hope will be looked at for many years to come.
This was a “fine art” portrait session concentrating my energies on photographing a single subject, the many facets of his personality and on a beautiful evening. I’m conducting more of these sessions now and they can take place at any point in the year, from summer with it’s long evenings, to winter with warm winter clothing and a little bit of frost on tall plants and trees. Get in touch if you’d like a session.
