Changing Faces

Who would have guessed that technology would advance so much since the turn of the century? I’ve gone from receiving photos for portrait commissions, directly from a client’s hands to receiving them somewhere in cyberspace!” Well, that’s all fine and dandy and I’m grateful for the extra levels of ease with which this can happen, however, I still  need to make a strong connection with my clients and using the internet by itself to achieve this end, just doesn’t cut it.

Emotional connection plays a large role in any relationship talk less of the tie between my clients and I. It’s needed for the successful completion of a portrait. From the time I receive a call from a client to the time I consult with them in their home or office, at my studio, or over the the phone, (preferably not just via text or email) to the time I present them with their masterpiece, (preferably in person) a high level of connection is in play and a successful outcome is heavily dependent upon it. I’m not interested in creating dead emotionless portraits, but lively, life-like, dynamic representations!

Kudos to the Internet, it’s high-level of impersonal technology and the innovation it ushers in, but I need to connect with my clients and their resulting portraits on a more personal level, one in which the Internet simply cannot compete.
