"Portraits should offer more than perfectly
lit images of someone's face.
They should open a window
to that person's essence."
-Rick Burnett Baker
We were privileged yesterday evening to have Cellist Kevin Maa join us at the Montanus Gallery for a photoshoot and impromptu 'concert'. Kevin is an accomplished musician, and has been auditioning for entrance into Rochester NY's acclaimed Eastman School of Music. (Visit these embedded links.)
Here are a few photos I took during our session. These are not typical 'portraits' but rather what I call 'candid portraits' that attempt to peer deeper into a person's being.
Portraits should offer more than perfectly lit images of someone's face. They should open a window to that person's essence.
We wish Kevin the very best in his artistic and professional endeavors!
