Like most photographers, before I try out new equipment on clients, I test it thoroughly. Yeah, right. It's digital so why bother? We can see the picture right off, so let's get shooting! And so it was with this camera. The day after I got it I was booked in the studio all day with sessions, so after a few...

I love shooting outdoor portraits! As a matter of fact, it has become my "signature style." During my busy season, I may take over 400 outdoor exposures in a single day, so I'd better be able to do it well and do it fast. An element of my style is that I don't use flash. Many photographers do, and...

The rapidly changing world of professional photography has photographers scrambling to grasp all the new technology. Some photographers are film based, some use a mix of film and digital, and many (like me) are now 100 percent digital. But all photographers I talk to express the same concern--how can they increase...

I take portraits of people every day. They pay me (hopefully) to create an image that says something about them. Perhaps it's a family who loves the ocean; we'll take a beach portrait. Maybe it's a mom who wants me to closely match a portrait done of her when she was 2. Or it could be a high school senior who wants to show how he's making the transition...

The Doucet Family
This photo of the David Doucet family is a good example of why I prefer digital capture and retouching for my group images. The boy only stayed in this position for a few images, then we had to sit him on mom. I liked this composition much better so this is the "base"...

As a professional, I'm asked all the time, What's the best camera? Of course, we all know that there is no "best camera" out there, at least not yet, but there is one out there that's best for you. After reading the info below, you'll be perfectly capable of making that decision.

You might think in the digital age that anyone out there hawking traditional portraiture would be a dinosaur, pleading for people to have their portraits done. After all, it's now possible to put people on the moon without them setting foot out of the studio. You would be wrong.

There are portrait photographers out there who command high fees who have clients...

Through the years, I've experimented with many different styles of light and many different light modifiers. There's an old saying that "light is light." That's true, but what a complicated...

I bought a Fujifilm FinePix S1 Pro the minute it came out--ditto with the FinePix S2 Pro. A box containing the new FinePix S20 Pro digital camera arrived recently on my doorstep along with wide angle and telephoto...

Regular readers will note that my articles are usually about techniques, not test reports. But when there's a new film out there for portrait photographers, that's right up my alley. The majority of my work is portraiture and I've long...
