Default Native Portrait

Chris came to visit the studio from our Makah Tribe here on the Olympic Peninsula.
I always offer a "Complimentary" BW Session to those Native Americans that come and visit with me with their regalia.

Thanks Jhawk. It's always a Honor to offer portraits to our local natives. I think of Edward Curtis while doing them.

Very nice portrait... Great tone and the little pop of color is nice too. Good job of doing these complementary sessions to these fine folks.

All are outstanding. I have followed your work for some time and am never disappointed. What I like is that you know the rules of composition but are so assured of your art/craft that you do what pleases you and your subjects.

Thanks again JHawk for your time and comments.



20 years ago I took my lst portrait class and it was with Monte Zucker. The man inspired the heck out of me. After taking some more classes with him I noticed alot of students were just wanting to become Monte clones. I told Monte, you know that's not for me, I need to see for myself and learn what it is that really interests me. I keep practicing and learning. Just yesterday I read some interesting comments for Jock Sturges and I need to read it again.



Here are a few more native portraits. We also have a Native American Paddle that comes thru our area in July. Looking forward to this years paddle.
