My name is Jon Busby and I am a portrait photographer.
Portraiture can tell us about how we see people. Portraits often show us what a person looks like, but they can also capture an idea of a person or what they stand for.
Portraits can also tell us how a person wants to be seen, and capture a particular mood that the sitter is experiencing. This can be described through choice of colour and a general atmosphere in an image.
A portrait can do many things. It can give a sense of importance to a person and their life; it can also give immortality to a person’s character: portraits live on forever!
Every sitter has something to give and my passion in portrait photography is finding that then bringing it out.
