To create successful environmental and studio portraits the photographer and subject need to connect and trust one another. On a similar note, the photographer needs to trust and rely on their equipment so that they can fully concentrate on their subject. Learn how Sony Artisans Brian Smith and Katrin Eismann work with the Sony a7R III to create unique and compelling portraits that are made possible by taking advantage of the latest features the a7R III offers including; shooting and tethering speeds, numerous focus options and the quality of Sony lenses.
Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Brian Smith is the luckiest guy on the planet. He’s told Bill Gates what to do for an entire hour, appeared on The X Factor, exhibited at the Library of Congress, dined with the President, written an Amazon Best Seller, shared cupcakes with Anne Hathaway, gotten drunk with George Clooney and married the most beautiful woman he ever laid eyes on. For the past 30 years, Brian Smith’s iconic portraits of Hollywood’s A-List and Fortune’s 500 have graced the covers and pages of hundreds of magazines. Five years later, Smith won the Pulitzer Prize for Spot News Photography.
