Eye for Art
An "Eye for Art" is a God given instinct. One of the great pleasures of having this nature is to be able to experience different forms of making pictures. Not only do I get to create fine art photography to see Through Your Window, I also have a portrait art business that I am grateful to own and operate.
"To me, photography is an art of observation. It’s about finding something interesting in an ordinary place… I’ve found it has little to do with the things you see and everything to do with the way you see them." - Elliott Erwitt
JL Photography is my portrait art business that has evolved over the last 23 years. People, places, everyday life and things I see throughout my travels. This type of work also includes senior pictures, kids, families, engagements, weddings, maternity, events and business headshots. Making portraits takes on a completely different aspect of being a photographer. My love for portraits comes from a desire to capture the personality, emotion, expression and essence of people. To be allowed in the space of other people with a camera, share their celebration and document milestone moments, is truly an honor.
"It's one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it's another thing to make a portrait of who they are." - Paul Caponigro
