Presentation is everything. Since we are a social-visual society, you can change your image by your pictures. Having the “X factor” is to possess an undefinable quality or radiance from within; something about a person that you cannot put your finger on, maybe best described as “presence”. The ability to recognize and capture this mysterious quality in someone has been one of my skills, which has been proven to many of my clients over the years. Many years of dedication, and application of talent, continuously have fine tuned this intuitive skill depending on the subject’s ability to be free of self consciousness in front of the camera. The relationship between the subject and the photographer is one of implicit trust and collaboration. The lady in above picture, mezzo-soprano Elsbeth Gerritsen brings to her photo shoot the same preparation and professionalism that she has put into her singing career over the years.
