Formal photos include posed photos and commissioned images of people. This includes family photos, wedding photos and photos taken for newspapers, magazines etc. Formal photography can be quite informal. The challange is having people relax in front of the camera. I find that my own relaxed attitude and friendly manner help make the experience fun and bring out the smiles.
This section will be updated in 2011 when I return to Pender and access my archives (notably newspaper and performance photos). There is a small selection of wedding photos from my previous web site.
