Whether I’m photographing an individual or a large group, my goal is always to keep the mood light and make it fun for everyone and I strive to create a safe environment where people feel free to contribute. A long time ago I learned that the most successful portraits are always collaborations between the photographer and the subject. A big part of this has nothing to do with using a camera. Or even one’s eyes. It’s about listening and understanding the people in front of the camera.
