"The End of the Dinosaurs." Mikaela and Tyler, Chugiak High School, did a few of their senior portraits as conceptual composites.

Storytelling Portraiture

 

FANTASY

-  Conceptual  /  Composite  /  Fine Art  -

I'm going to tell you a secret.

 

I hate having my portrait taken. Even selfies (which is why you'll only see really weird faces

if you take a look at my cell phone camera roll. If you get past all the cat pictures, of course).

I also hate looking at myself in the mirror. It only happens about twice a day

– in the morning as I apply the makeup, and in the evening after it has come off.

That's it.

 

But I love when people walk by our studio and giggle at my self portraits.

I'll glance up, eyes just above the edge of my tall receptionist's desk so they can't see me,

and I smile at their excitement. Their energetic waves for their friends to

”Come here! Come take a look at this!”

 

I'm not comfortable creating portraits of myself ”looking good”.

But I want portraits of myself (you know, for my future self and for

my future children and grandkids).

So I create interesting – and funny - composites.

 

My favorites – and what seem to be the mall people's favorites –

is the one of me playing cards with myself (and getting caught cheating, oops),

and the one where I'm setting mom's kitchen on fire (while my mom is reading a book

and mom's cats are doing crazy things around us).

 

No one NEEDS creative composites or conceptual portraits.

But they are a great option for those of us who want portraits of ourselves

where we don't have to focus on our looks – in a composite/conceptual,

it's all about the STORY.

You just happen to be in it (playing the lead role).

 

They are of course also a great addition to ”normal” portraits.

Even if you love having your portraits taken, you probably also

WANT to play the star in a composite/conceptual story.

 

 

That's what makes them so great – composites and conceptual portraits are for everyone.

 

And if you're like me, they might make you feel better about yourself.
