I have long believed that the most important quality that a portrait photographer requires is an interest in people. A desire to talk but most importantly to listen. To feel confident enough in technical ability to not allow it to dominate the creative process. In short to demonstrate empathy, to document a person as they truly are, not just how they look. Of course there are many reasons why a portrait is created and therefore many approaches to the portrait are implemented by photographers. From the highly controlled and manipulated to the captured moment of the unaware, all are valid but are all successful in communicating with the viewer?
