I am proud to be published in book called Creative Portrait Photography by Natalie Dybisz aka Miss Aniela
Creative Portrait Photography is Natalie’s second book, continuing to bend boundaries by fusing fine art with useful dialogue, making ‘art’ accessible. This book offers a new approach to ‘portraiture’: contextual and challenging imagery that uses location and concept in a way beyond the typical head-shot, mid-shot and deadpan portraiture.
The book is loaded with advice for photographers, from both a philosophical and practical viewpoint
The book also has a contributor section of photographers handpicked by the author.|T
hey are all at the forefront of creative portraiture, strong in the book’s ethos but also diverse: Kirsty Mitchell, Peter Kemp, Brooke Shaden, Susannah Benjamin and Alex Stoddard.
Their work is featured alongside their text which talks intimately about their process, their backgrounds and their ambitions.
