My idea is to create an ongoing project of portraits of real people doing real things. Not something photoshopped. Not fake. Not smoothed or fixed to perfection. I strongly believe that beauty comes from imperfection. Consider that our faces aren't symmetrical. When you split and mirror a face so that it is symmetrical, it doesn't look quite normal. We know we feel we have a best side. True or not, my hope is to create an image you'll love and feel best represents who you are. One that you'd be proud to show others. If you want something photoshopped to perfection, we can do that, too. It takes time and costs by the hour.
In Heinlein's classic, Stranger in a Strange Land, Valentine Michael Smith says something to the extent that Jubal Harshaw's face is beautiful because of the history engraved upon it. Our wrinkles, scars, and crooked smiles add value to our appearance. This is what I want to capture.
The cost is free to the first five people who respond to this blog. Once we've worked together, I hope you'll like my work enough to recommend me to your friends.
