Guys Need Portraits Too You Know!

January 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

I have a confession to make. I hate being in photos. Friends and family will confirm this. I'm much more comfortable being the guy behind the camera.

 

As last Christmas got closer and closer, I pulled out a family video slideshow I put together from Jan 2013 when we had all the snow, and it showed a family walk where my wife and three kids are all together, rolling around in the snow having fun etc, but I was no where to be seen. I didn't appear in one image, and there were lots! I was the guy taking all the pics.

Don't get me wrong, I love being that guy, but this really got me thinking about how guys don't tend to want to get pictures taken too often of themselves. Certainly not professional portraits, and yet to our kids, we are probably heroes, and the power of a good portrait shouldn't be under estimated. Especially many years from now!

 

Anyway, point of the post is......guys..........if you haven't got a decent pro portrait of yourselves, make this year the year you get one done and get something up on the walls in your home. Any concept you have in mind, simple on white background, dark dramatic with shadows on black background, or if you would like something a little more creative and different where we work together to capture a pose and then put you in a cool background to add some drama and impact. Whatever you are into, make sure you get in on the action and let me know if I can help you achieve that!

 

If you don't fancy the pro portrait approach, if this post just jogs you like it has me to get into more snaps and family video's so your loved one's can see more of you in action (and you in your prime), mission accomplished!

 

Thanks for reading.....

Stu
