Portrait Photography

“Portrait Photography is my passion. Exploring the connection with and the essence of a person. Capturing their character. Celebrating their uniqueness. When shooting portraits I endeavour to capture a moment provocative to the viewer; prompting a question, inspiring a thought, triggering a reaction. Drawing the viewer into the story paused in the frame”.    – Portrait Photographer Migal Vanas

Portrait photography and portraiture include business headshots for corporate portraits, media releases, and castings, as well as full-body portraits of individuals or groups. Shoots can be in a studio or at a location in an environment relating to the subject. A good portrait should connect with the viewer and convey the desired personality or character of the subject.

Difference Between Headshot Photography, Portrait Photography and Environmental Portraits.

Headshot and portrait photography are typically differentiated in that headshots are professional representations of the subject, while portraits are a more creative interpretation and artistic representation of the subject. Headshots generally are taken in a photographic studio and use a plain background while portraits are often in a location or an environment that adds to the message and story of the image.”Environment Portraiture” is a term often used to describe a genre of portrait photography in which the subject is depicted in their usual environment; their home or workplace. A sportsperson would have environmental portraits taken in a place where they usually train or compete.

A business owner or spokesperson would typically hire a portrait photographer to have a series of headshots taken in a studio and then have a number of environmental portraits shot in the office or work environment.

Boudoir Photography

Boudoir photography is a style of portraiture featuring romantic, intimate, and sometimes erotic images of the subject and is generally intended for the private enjoyment of the subject and their romantic partner. Boudoir photography has grown tremendously in popularity in recent years as women feel more empowered and confident.
