Portraiture is a genre that inspires me and the inspiration is from photographers like Irving Penn who predominantly produced stylised portraits in the studio for advertising and magazines. I love Penn's quality of light, his challenging compositions and the beautiful rendering of tone in black and white. I look for it whenever I'm photographing people, even though I'm shooting on location with available light.
So, where am I going with this? Len Metcalf is a regular contributor to Better Photography magazine and he dropped down to the office last week with a mission and a challenge. The mission was to obtain a portfolio of my work for an upcoming edition of Len's Journal, a subscription-only portfolio magazine he publishes, but the challenge was a little more difficult.
