Through my own exploration of self portraiture I found myself falling headfirst into the title of portrait photographer in early 2018. Taking photos of others in a structured and cooperative manner was completely new to me, all the trappings of lighting, angle, even focal length became new challenges and new skillsets. I have been very lucky to work with many incredible humans, some more than once, over the past year. I do not know where portraiture will take me, or what part it will have in my work long term, but the experiences and connections I have made and continue to make will be with me for the rest of my life.
