"Almost to a person, the vast majority of people will tell you that they don't like having their picture taken. Needless to say, if I photograph someone who feels this way, we'll both be unhappy with the result. So my biggest challenge is to put the person at ease, to develop a conversation, a rapport in the short time we have together. Once that's accomplished, the subject then becomes a partner in the process, and it will show in the results. Lighting, lenses, and camera are the easy part."
