For my portraits, my shooting style is more laid back and fun. Many of the people I shoot don’t have much experience in front of a camera and I know that this can be very intimidating - as it makes them feel self-conscious. They don’t know what to do, how to act and they certainly don’t want to do anything that will make them look bad or silly. So instead of me dictating from the beginning, “Do this or move here,” for example, I make use of the fact that we are in a place that my subject knows.
