Portrait photography

by Cormac Scanlan

Whilst it is perhaps a little more outside my comfort zone than shooting stationary subjects that don't answer back, there is something I find very satisfying about portrait photography. In the past I have done various professional photoshoots of weddings and balls, as well as numerous paid portraits of strangers, friends and professionals, but these days I prefer the freedom of shooting portraits for fun.

Be it through candid moments, or captured expressions triggered by stories, jokes or random scenarios, I always strive to capture the essence of both my subject, and their surroundings in my portrait photos.
