“Creating a great portrait is all about those special moments, when everything comes together and you get that honest moment of connection.”
Xiaomi asked me to create a masterclass for them on portrait photography.
I talk about discovering the power of portraits with my Let’s Talk project, create colourful images of jewellery designer Beverly Quintal, tell you how I prepare for a shoot, take you on a tour of our set, and explain how I work with people to create those moments that make the best portraits.
