It was a year of growing portrait photo shoots; more individuals, couples and families. It took a while to pick just one out of the hundreds of images. Most of the images are family portraits, and there are lots of stand out images. Couples come in second and individuals are third. There are very few individual portraits in any given year. Not that individual shots are not taken during a family or couples photo shoot, but rarely does a single individual want professional portraits, on the beach, at sunset. And, those few that do, are women. This year a semi-professional male model was in Maui and contacted me for a ‘TF’ photo shoot. TF is ‘trade for.’ I take, and keep, the pictures, as digital files, for my portfolio, and he gets, at no cost, those same pictures, in digital format, for his portfolio. Win-win.
