Portraits are not things I naturally do, as I find them difficult and often a bit disappointing. Recently I bought a new soft box with the intention of taking some portraits, I had agreed to take of the ministry team at my church. So when the time arrived I took the opportunity to go and take some test shots of my dad the artist John Scarland. Here is the result.
This is my dad’s audio story. I asked him to record it many months ago when I first started making Audio Portraits. I had already taken this photograph back in 2016 and I have always loved it. I’m not sure if the closeness of our relationship presents itself in the portrait, I like to think so. Or maybe it’s just easier taking portraits of people you know and love so well. Anyway, I love this one and have a listen to his Audio.
