For years now I have been shooting all of my portraits in classical, elegant Black and White. This medium cuts through the camouflage of colour. In order to be successful as an photograph, an image needs to have good structure, good lighting, and great expression. My aim is to simplify the image into these base components. All too often, all colour does is confuse the issue, coming between the subject and the viewer.
Black & white images will fit into any decor, and tend not to date as quickly as colour ones as the trends and fashions change with the years.
