What is a Portrait Photo?

A portrait photo is a style of photography that almost always involves people as the subject—except in the case of pet photography— shot in various backgrounds. In some instances, backdrops add to the picture, and in other instances, the subject is the star of the show, and backdrops are intentionally kept minimal. Regardless, portrait photography is all about capturing a person’s essence in their chosen environment.

Here are some of my Portrait works.
