Last year I photographed Natasha Kaplinsky at her home for an interview in the Telegraph. She had just finished an 18 month filming schedule, interviewing over 100 holocaust survivors, and as, understandably, it had taken it's toll, she had decided to take a some time off. Natasha's paternal grandparents were Polish Jews, and on an episode of 'Who Do You Think You Are?' she discovered that many of her family had been killed in a ghetto. When I arrived at her home I couldn't have felt more welcome. I was met warmly by Natasha, her husband and the numerous animals dotted about, and I was given free rein to look around the house and find somewhere to shoot. We did 5 or 6 different setups, but this one image was my favourite. I felt it portrayed the fatigue that was clearly felt after such a emotionally draining project. Kaplinsky has since been awarded an OBE for her services to Holocaust commemoration. @kaplinskyn #portrait#portraitphotography#professionalphotographer#lighting#holocaust#news#newsreader#emotional#telegraph#elinchrom#onassignment#leica#leicamp240#summilux50#professionallighting#jewish#documentary#interview
Question! Over and over people preach that Instagram needs to be cohesive and you share what you want to shoot. I spend a lot of time ensuring that my IG page represents my style and my main specialization - seniors and weddings. But here is the question, what do those of you who follow me want to see? Would you like to see more personal posts (like yesterday I posted a mountain bike selfie) or do you like just seeing the weddings and seniors? Tell me what do YOU want from JWP?
