People photography by Andrea Russell


Photographing people is not easy.  Unlike products, people do not stay still for long.  People are self-conscious, they get nervous, sweaty under lights, need to use the loo, answer their mobiles, get an itch, get hungry and loose interest after a while.  As a professional photographer, I need to be prepared for it all and then some more!

People photography is probably the most rewarding type of photography.  It always leads to one-off images that can never be re-created.  The way that person felt, and looked was unique to that moment in time.  Once captured, that moment is gone.  For me people photography is always a challenge.  It is also the reason I love it so much.
