Cowboy Portrait

Cowboy Portrait – Creating Unique Portraiture with Texture

I don’t know about you, but my skin crawls at the thought of  a “JC Penny” style portrait.  No matter how interesting a person may be, that basic head shot / studio type of image simply drains the life right out of your subject.  Even if your subject look simply perfect, what have I learned about them by looking at a photograph like that?  Does that cookie cutter portrait tell me who they are, what they enjoy in life, what they do for a living?  Does it expose their personality, their dreams,,,  anything?   No, no and no…

A good portrait should mirror in some way, the person whom you are photographing.
