A portrait should represent your likeness and evoke your emotional energy.
That is my goal when making your portrait.
I think of your portrait as being an image representing the outside and inside of you. A single image if made with focus and connection can be a true representation of your persona. However, no manner how successful the single image is it will not represent the whole truth of who you are because you are way too complex. At the moment the photograph is made you may be open and the still image can communicate that openness. You may also be quiet, cautious, and have wit, chances are the single picture will not communicate all of those aspects of your persona. When making your portrait I will guide you to being present in the moment and not get concerned about trying to show all the aspects of your persona. Let’s be satisfied with getting one image that reflects who you are.
When you open your spirit and allow your energy to move and I focus my attention and spirit we can connect in 125th of a second to create an image that communicates your persona.
My Portrait Studio is located in downtown Sarasota at 1338 Central Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236. I’ve put a lot of intention into creating a space that is warm, comfortable and safe with the goal that you will feel good about having your portrait made. I look forward to working with you to “capture” your persona.

This is one of those spaces where the separation that is often created by architecture goes away. Being in this environment gives one the feeling of a union between the outside and inside. The vertical feature of the narrow columns creates a visual connection to the trunks of the trees which come up within feet of the glass walls.
I find that the pattern and relationship between nature and the architecture creates a visual tableau that becomes art.
This image will be shown on Saturday, June 30, 2018, with other prints exploring the concept of “Art Within Architecture”. The exhibit will be at my Studio/Gallery, Eastep Photography which is part of Art Central. Art Central is located at 1330-1340 Central Avenue, Sarasota, Florida 34236. Two other artist’s Lucy Barber and Kathy Wright will also have open studio’s from 11 am to 4 pm.
