Reza Ali Photography – Portrait Portfolio

I love taking portraits of people. There’s nothing like that feeling you get when someone see a print of their portrait for the first time. The big smile, the sparkle in the eye. Whatever inhibition or shyness they have disappears when they see a beautiful portrait of themselves.

These are a selection of portraits I have taken. I have chosen portraits to show a variety of styles that I have pursued. Taking a picture is really easy but taking a portrait that shows the essence of a person requires more than technical knowledge. The most difficult (and on the other hand, the easiest) aspect I find is to get a connection with the person I am taking a portrait of. A portrait is not only an image of a person but is a reflection of who the person is.

2008- Pictures by Reza Ali

 

2008 was a year of great growth for me. If I were to list it all the things which has happened to me in terms of my photography, the list would be long indeed. But here are 5 highlights:

January – Trip to India. New Delhi, Agra and Jaipur

May- embarking on journey of off camera lighting

September – embarking of journey of mastering black and white film (and my first Leica M)

October – first sale of an image

November – first proper professional shoot

Each of these events is significant for my photograph both in term of sheer technical development as well as approach and mindset. Truth be told, I never really gave my photograph a chance. I enjoyed it and it gives me great pleasure and even though I love the comments and compliments given by people, I always thought that my vision (and therefore my imagery) was normal. It wasn’t until I made a choice to bring my photography to a level where people would pay extra-ordinary amounts of money for it did I realy begin to challenge myself and therefore grow.

I feel that 2009 is going to be explosive. 2008 was a year of learning. 2009 is going to be a year of results…..

So ladies and Gentlemen, I present you ‘My Journey in Masteting Portrait Photography’.

Kids At The Harvest Center

I’ve added another slideshow of pictures taken during the Harvest Center Graduation Ceremony. The Harvest Center is an organisation that supports children, in particular children of refugees, in education using the Montessori Method. I’ll put more information on them as I find out. In the meantime you can read about The Harvest Centre.
