After years of shooting, I found a term that comes pretty close to what I think of myself as. I am a Portraitiste Par Excellence. The portrait is what I do. In my earlier days of snapping, I did the usual mix - some landscape, some street shooting, an occasional wedding, some typical family snaps. Nowadays I rarely put the camera to my eye for something other than to take a portrait of a beautiful woman. You could say that now I am focused. And, since this is not my primary source of income, I get picky - that is, when I say beautiful, I mean it. I want to capture beauty. Not the "inner kind" but the ultimate outside - shallow as it may be, but breathtaking all the same.
