Studio portraits — in the beginning
A selection of studio portraits — photographs — some of which later became paintings
Like many photographers, I opened a studio, expecting to make my fortune behind a camera. And like many photographers, I ended up shooting a lot of weddings (not my favourite thing.)
But I kept coming back to figure studies and staged studio portraits, and many of those became the basis for my paintings.
I continue to do photo shoots, but these days I focus mainly on images that will make great paintings.
