After talking to Paul about his portrait session, it was quit obvious that he was a strong individual. A teacher by trade, Paul could easily quit his day job and go pro as a fitness coach or MMA fighter. With a broad chest and bulging biceps, Paul looked like he could break me in half. Though, something told me that he wouldn't. I could immediately tell by chatting with Paul that he is intelligent, deep thinking and caring. He is also a bit shy. But, I could tell that this guy had the heart of lion, of a warrior. I could tell by his story that he had as much inner strength as he did muscle mass.
After speaking with Paul and a bit of planning, we decided to capture Paul's emotional and physical strength by portraying Paul as a fighter. The final images remind me exactly of Paul. Introspective and calm, just like a fighter is before the violent storm.
I truly enjoyed working with Paul and thank him for choosing me as his portrait photographer.
I would be honored to work for you to create a set of portraits showing how you want to be seen. If you are interested in your very own session, contact me here.
