Portrait photography is about people. The person positioned in front of the lens displays a range of emotions, reactions and feelings to the viewer. For portrait photographers, this is an opportunity to showcase the truth behind the human experience. In fact, the work of a portrait photographer is rooted in his or her ability to bring out the personality and essence of their subject.

Portraiture may be one of the most powerful genres of the medium. It is what effectively ignited the art form of photography. In fact, portrait photography combines the representation of your subject with a historical footnote that gives us a sense of time and place. By what our subjects look like, how they dress and act – we can give a representation of our society.

Portrait photographers cover a series of genres within the industry. This includes the areas of editorial, fashion, weddings, commercial and studio photography. Although, it depends on the individual artist, each realm of portrait photography has its own nuances and focal points. With portrait photographers, this ample room for interpretation allows them to create a personal style that represents their creative vision.

Famous portrait photographers such as Annie Leibovitz, Cindy Sherman and David Bailey are some of the pioneers that have shaped the identity of portraiture. Each of these artists have created portrait images that represent truth, emotion and identity. Whether photographing their closest friends, creating self portraits or capturing well-known celebrities, their portrait style is unique and recognizable.
