Figure portrait work is a true love of mine. I call them "figure" portraits due to the fact they are not formally posed portraits. I enjoy capturing my subjects unaware, doing what they do. I feel getting that "moment" expresses more of their character. Needless to say I always have a camera handy and may pour through 50-100 photos to find just the right one. Clients also send me photos to review for commissioned pieces. I work from photographs as they are always available and allow me to work as long as I get the chance to do so.
