The Why Of It

Recently I was asked why portrait photography, or specifically portraits of people in various states of undress. My simple reply is always because I enjoy the challenge of capturing people in different light, angles and unique expressions. The fact that they were in various states of undress was moot. But then I also thought why keep doing it? What else is out there that I can find?

And that was it. I realized that I am again ambitious in my photography.
And curious.
And looking for different.

Different compositions, challenges, locations, adventures, formats and more.

I want to discover something from a new perspective and photograph it. To remember a moment, or document something for all time, or appreciate the subject more. I don’t want posed. I want candid, intentional, deliberate and authentic.

This is the why; a new challenge.
