I did a “Portrait Project” a couple of years ago. The idea was to build my portfolio, improve my skills and plant the seeds for a project that swims around in the back of my mind.

Tamyka agreed to be one of my models. We were in natural light and she started off with no make up. Something in the way the light was hitting her caught my attention and I asked her to quickly apply some make up and wrap herself in the colorful scarf she had around her neck. This was our result. While as a photographer who has learned a little since then, I can get wrapped up in all the technical things that need improvement – I still love this image. The moment we captured will never exist again and I love how photography can capture and document our lives – allowing us to travel back in time for a minute just like a song or a smell can.
