This week’s show is all child portrait photography. We will be discussing effective approaches in child portraiture around such topics as how to relate to your little subjects and their parents alike to gain effective images, which images sell and how to how to aproach unco-operative children. We will talk through common scenarios and discuss ways how we can best manage all of this to achieve the best outcome in all areas.
Firstly, joining me this week is the awesome Jo de Banzie from London, UK. Jo specialises in children’s portraiture, producing images with a lyrical, wistful quality. Her long-term interests in landscape photography has had a profound influence on the way she chooses to photograph people. Her work is shot entirely on location, where her subjects are placed within the context of their lives. Using natural light, and borrowing from the landscape, incorporating detail, texture and movement. Jo’s images capture the spirit of childhood through a series of glimpsed moments.
Then we have the fab Jessica Walton from Photos by Jessica in Suffolk, UK. Jessica specialises in both family portraiture and wedding photography, using natural locations to produce fantastic results.
