I had the opportunity to work with a this awesome gentleman the other day. Roger ( aka - Horace Silver). A native to Belgium, Roger had been showing up on my radar in the past few months, from working with a whole host of highly regarded photographers and I was very impressed from the level of work he was capable of producing with the photographers he had worked with.
When I was given the chance to work with him I jumped at the opportunity as I was intrigued to see what sort of images we could come up with.
Roger understood the importance of how expressions play a vital role in portrait photography. So I decided to do a whole set of images to show the versatility of what makes portraits so unique. I let Roger just go to town and do what he wanted to show the many characters or sides of his personality.
Everything comes down to the way we express ourselves through our facial features and body movements. Everything need not be so serious all the time. Show the human side of people and get better portraits.
