Having a Concept is Essential

Hearing the stories of people I’m about to photograph is very important not just for me but primarily for them. The more I know about them, the better concepts we can come up with for their portraits.

Let me tell you a bit about Kalin Brown. She is an aspiring model. We wanted to come up with three concepts. I listened to her story and learned she plays violin. Instantly we had our first concept.

She also wanted images with a bit of bohemian flavor and use flowers.

And the third concept was to photograph outdoors and to aim for a softer, dreamier feel.

What is your story? And how would you like to be photographed?
