My Neighbor, Darrin

Head and shoulders portrait of an average American man.He’s the son of a Baptist minister, and a nurse mother. He’s a veteran of the U.S. Army having served in Germany during the Cold War. He’s the father of a beautiful daughter, and he’s a soon-to-be grandfather. He’s a genuinely nice man and my friend.

Throughout most of my career, I took pictures of products, processes and places, but I began this job shooting weddings and portraits. Every now and again I feel the compulsion to create photographs of people. Darrin was an available and agreeable subject. I hope my portrait of him does justice.

    Exceptional work Jess! You captured Darrin beautifully! The lighting has brought out his handsome features and gently personality. You have not lost your touch! Thank you for sharing.

  2. Lovely portrait, the soft gaze, the slight smile and the way the light touches his face and the collar of his shirt create a very peaceful look. A sense of kindness and being at ease with the photographer
