People and Portraits

People are at the heart of any destination. They add the life, are the guardians of local culture and provide many of the great memories of any travels. With over six billion people in the world photographing people is one of the only ways of getting a unique and original photograph.

Photographing people is not easy though: to get a natural result the photographer has to interact and put people at ease, and then use their personality to avoid a stiff and posed image. Achieving a spark in the eye, an ironic expression or an unfathomable look where the personality of the individual shows through are the goal.
