One of the things I always do when shooting portraiture is capture people’s personalities, if clients are pretty chilled then that is what I want to capture, if they like a laugh then obviously that is what I want to show – it is a bonus when we can incorporate something even more personal like a hobby or interest and show even more of who people are.
Sam and Nick are both into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (in fact Sam just won a Gold Medal at The Pan Pac’s in Melbourne) and this was something we were all keen to work into the shoot. We managed to incorporate a fair amount of laughter, some BJJ and a level of sledging also worthy of a Gold Medal. In fact, if sledging and laughter burned calories I think we’d have all been hospitalised.
Bearing this in mind, if you’re overdue for some updated photos or if there is a project you’d like to work on feel free to call me, we can have a chat over the phone or over a coffee. There is no obligation or cost and you might just have a really fun time.
