Portrait Photography for the Press

Sometimes the time is enough - not usually.
Some are famous - a lot less.
Some play with and open up very quickly - but an intensive exchange happens rarely.
Often you have to find the right composition in an unfamiliar place with a given light in a little time.
How the picture will be built together with the text later in the newspaper, we don't know while taking pictures.

Portrait photography for the press is a challenge.
Often we wish more time with the person we have to make the portrait of, in order to learn more about his/her character traits.
However, exactly this improvisation makes this job extremely fascinating.

To know that often the picture decides whether a reader reads the written article, makes this work so exigent.
