A Portrait


I rarely succeed in doing portraits. For starters I’m terrible with artificial lighting. This one I confess I got by accident. It is of a young cousin of mine who I sat next to at a dinner party. I thought what the hell, I’ll use the little flash that comes on my beloved Ricoh GR.

Voila!! It’s a complete accident but I want to try for more of these.

Bowtie Wearer With Bad Knees I spent my early years in Massachusetts in a little town called Easton. I went to Harvard, served in the Navy as Operations Officer on and LST, founded a construction company and served in the state Legislature as Assistant Minority Leader. However my life really began when I moved to Maine and opened an art gallery. I've been around the fine arts in the commercial art business for over 25 years now and loved (almost) every minute of it. I look at every day is a gift, except when it's very cold outside or I have to go to the dentist.

  1. Really nice shot. I share your sentiments about portraits….seems like a special art to get the lighting correct. I’m not courageous enough to ask strangers for a portrait so perhaps I should start practising on my relatives too.

I'd love to hear from you
