Portraitist SIMONFREDERICK If it's a likeness, alone, it's not a success. If, through my portraits, you can come to know the subjects more meaningfully, if it synthesizes your feelings toward someone whose work has imprinted itself on your mind--if you see a photograph and say, 'Yes, this is the person,' with a little new insight--that is a beautiful experience. - Yousuf Karsh - probably the most famous portrait photographers of all time Read Less

Portraitist [ˈpɔːtrɪtɪst -treɪ-]
An artist, photographer, etc., who specializes in portraits

I am a Portraitist. I am amongst a small group of individuals continuing and exploring the grand tradition and the medium of photographic portraiture.

In the past, to have your Portrait taken, meant that you were somebody, it was a thing of status. Today everybody wants to feel like they are somebody and this is fueling the revival in the art of bespoke photographic portraiture.

Today my role as a Portraitist is to elevate the status of my subjects, in a way that allows other people to see the true person, feel their emotion and to feel like we have gained some insight into the persons character, simply by seeing their photograph.

The great and the good are seeking out specialist Portraitists for the images that they would have represent themselves. This is fueling the revival in the art of bespoke photographic portraiture.

Actors, Actresses, Musicians, Sports People, Business leaders and Politicians need for their image to be distinctive. Not all photographers are created equal, only a small percentage of us have this unique ability to create the conditions in which the images that we make, defines an individual in ways that would make others care, hold your attention and change your perspective.

Every Portrait I make, is as individual as the person in front of my camera. It is my responsibility to interpret to the best of my ability, the inner strength, the true character, of these personalities and make work that is distinctive and memorable for my subjects, clients and myself.
 
Please let me know what you think, appreciation and comments are the best forms of feedback to improve and develop my work.
 
Below is a small selection of some of the people I have had the opportunity to Portrait. 


SIMONFREDERICK
Amy Jade Winehouse (14 September 1983 – 23 July 2011) was an English singer and songwriter. known for her deep contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres including R&B, soul and jazz.  Winehouse's 2003 debut album, Frank, was critically successful in the UK and was nominated for the Mercury Prize. Her 2006 follow-up album, Back to Black, led to six Grammy Award nominations and five wins, tying the then record for the most wins by a female artist in a single night, and made Winehouse the first British female to win five Grammys, including three of the "Big Four": Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
