Time passes so quickly. Thirty years from now Ryan, Bridget and Isabella will be happy that this fleeting moment early on in Isabella’s life was recorded.

No surprise that when a disaster strikes people worldwide return to the site and one of the first things they search for are family pictures.

Peter, Greer and Maddy, Newport, R.I.

An “environmental portrait” shows people within their place. It gives us a fuller sense of who they are and what makes up their life. This portrait of Peter and Greer gives us a sense of the lush plantings which are an important part of their place and their lives. And of course their beautiful dog Maddy.

Black and white images eliminate the energy and vibrations that color introduces. It also creates and elemental way for us to view the content of the image. Black and white images have survived the “test of time” and are as beautiful now as they have been since the introduction of photography.

Wayne Foster with a puppy at Southeastern Guide-dog Center.

The connection between Wayne Foster and the “guide-dog to be” puppy is strong in this portrait. When a connection between the person and the focus of their attention is established an essential energy within begins to move. That energy and connection can be seen and felt. This connection and energy is the potential power of a portrait. When we see this alchemy we feel an emotional response and our own connection to the person in the portrait is established.

Dr. Robert Carlson in the Heart Surgery Operating Room of Sarasota Memorial Hospital.
Dr. Robert Carlson

I made this environmental portrait of Dr. Robert Carlson, heart surgeon, for an editorial story profiling his remarkable “off pump” open heart surgery technique. A year later I chose him to perform open heart surgery on me using the “off pump” technique. I’ve always liked this portrait for it’s combination of showing Dr. Carlsons warm humanity and his confidence. This is a situation where what I saw in a person I trusted and put my life in his hands.
