Introduction to the artists

From: Narrative Portraiture: Portraits of Two Texas Artists

Video: Introduction to the artists

Welcome and good morning. Here we are, once again, in Beaumont, Texas. Now this morning we got up in the dark and came out here early in order to take pictures of the train bridge as the sun rose. There's something so special about the morning light, about the dawn of a new day, and today we have an exciting adventure ahead of us. Today is a day where we take all of the talk, all of the creative ideas, all of the philosophies in regards to portraiture, we fold those up, we put them in our back pocket, and we go out with the intent of creating powerful images. Now, what's unique about today is that Keith Carter is going to come with us. In a sense, he's going to be our ambassador, which in turn will help us create connection with our subjects.

Welcome and good morning. Here we are, once again, in Beaumont, Texas. Now this morning we got up in the dark and came out here early in order to take pictures of the train bridge as the sun rose. There's something so special about the morning light, about the dawn of a new day, and today we have an exciting adventure ahead of us. Today is a day where we take all of the talk, all of the creative ideas, all of the philosophies in regards to portraiture, we fold those up, we put them in our back pocket, and we go out with the intent of creating powerful images. Now, what's unique about today is that Keith Carter is going to come with us. In a sense, he's going to be our ambassador, which in turn will help us create connection with our subjects.

Now, I'm excited about the adventure that we have ahead of us, and I'm excited that you're joining us on this. And as we go out to create these images, keep this in mind: we're trying to do the impossible. We're trying to create powerful images in a short amount of time, and in doing so, inevitably, there will be things that will come up that we haven't anticipated. So part of today will be thinking on our feet and thinking about all of those things that we've already talked about, seeing how we can put those into practice and how we can create powerful portraits.
