Arguably the most difficult of photographic genres, and definitely true for me. People, unlike landscapes, move and have an attitude. They have emotions and feelings, they want things to look a certain way, to be staged, set up, shifted. Land doesn’t care, it is what it is, beautiful or boring. Your job as a photographer is to move around the land and capture what is there, not move it around. That is what I love about landscape work and inversely find very challenging about portrait work. Sure you can do candid work or natural light, but even that is a million times more tricky. However I do it, and make a real effort do it well and continue to get better. People matter more then the land, their stories and faces need to be captured, remembered and shared. This is what draws me to people, its more challenging, but its incredibly rewarding.
