Portrait Assignments


Assignment – Often an assignment requires only that a portrait of the subject be made. Time constraints on the photographer as well as on the subject typically limit the time that can be spent together to around 30 minutes at best. This presents a unique challenge to the photographer as they meet the subject for the first time, help them to become comfortable with being in front of the camera, and then get the subject into a natural state regardless of the day they have had. All while working to provide visual context for the story through the image composition within the shoot’s setting. Each image within this set was shot during one of these portrait assignments in under 30 minutes.
