Geelong Photographer – Child Portraits

For the last year or so I’ve been playing with new designs and styles with my newborn, baby and child portraits. I’ve been a bit hesitant to show the new style, simply because I wanted to perfect it before releasing them. And anyway, good things take time don’t they!  But now, I’m close, so close in fact that I am now in the final stages of photographing and designing my samples. Because some of the new styles are so specific, they can only be photographed at certain times. Add to that the new type of paper that I will be using for these portraits and I now have something very different and exclusive. Over the next few months you’ll be seeing the future of portraits come to life on this page. Something that Geelong has never seen and only at Photography by Riccardo.

Something arty

If there’s one thing that I enjoy the most about photography is being able to just play and experiment. Digital technology has made it easy for anyone to be able to pick up a camera and take a decent photo. Only yesterday I was reading an article that asked why anyone would bother having a family portrait taken with a professional photographer when they could do it themselves these days.  The article actually even said that a “decent family portrait can be taken with your phone these days”. Really?? I must be missing something here because whenever I take a snap with my iPhone, I’m always disappointed with the quality. It always looks great on the screen, but have you ever tried printing a decent sized photo out of it?  So really, cameras are no different to what they were 20 years ago. Back then we had film and waited a couple of days to get our prints back, now we see it in an instant but essentially, all the camera does is record what we point it at. So, to get back on track, being able to experiment, not with the camera or photoshop, but with light, that’s where real photographers excel. Here’s a favourite image of mine. Simple, artistic and beautiful. Child photography, but with a sense of timeless art. This is what my clients love. Something that they can hang on their walls, not in their phones. I have been working on something that’s a little different and will be offering clients select art pieces shortly. These will be photographed exclusively in my studio or in select locations in and around Geelong. You can always see more wedding photos on my Facebook page, just click Here.
