Portfolio for Kathleen McGarry - Commissionaportrait

The timing of a picture is something you cannot plan and often arrives as a gift long after the event itself. I have been around the camera for over 15 years...starting as a hair & make-up artist in fashion and travelling around the world gaining perspective as a collaborator. When I found the accidental courage to engage with it directly, a relationship was rooted. My inspiration has always been the ancient, first photographs--the colour of the earth and sky--where glass negatives were the order of the day. I am drawn to that thing that happens when, in a still moment, an offering is made and held. To this day, I remain surprised and mesmerized by what transpires. I have had the privilege to work with the actress, Emma Thompson, both in her private life and on film sets. I continue to do a series of portraits, as well as travel with her, to capture very humourous and intimate moments. The only photo I have put here is one from Angels In America, because it has been seen around the world already and would avoid a scandal. Other portraits exist in a private collection and could be available for viewing in a consultation, if appropriate.
Birth date   July 23, 1969

Statement      I have a very simple way of working: one camera, one kind of film and the given light. Working with all the elements in nature is a preference. I find the best pictures come through in the simplest way.My desire would be to create a portrait of someone by assisting them in finding a part of themselves they know exists, but has  
remained, perhaps, just under the surface; one that reflects a truth and becomes a treasure usually remains hidden until a moment of trust occurs.  
I prefer not to think of the prices in terms of the borders of size. I personally feel that it takes the spontaneity away from taking the photograph and it also prevents the image from evolving.  
My fee begins at 750 per day.
