Military Portraits

Military Portraits

I have been interested in portraiture in photography for a long time.  I am interested in showing the emotion and drama from the subjects point of view.  In the last ten years the role of the Army , Navy and Airforce have been prominent in the worlds press due to the conflicts in the middle east.   As a personal project I wanted to show the military man as a portrait.  I have not stuck to the generic sandy coloured uniform, I looked for different uniforms and periods of history. 

 

I have had the full support of charity organisations and historical recreation societies.  I have also have the MOD as repeat clients and have been given the opportunity to document service work there also.

 

This is a ongoing project,  and I know the story behind every person photographed here and what they have done.  One thing I have learnt is never judge a book by its cover as in this gallery are people who have acted with valour and bravery whilst retaining their humanity.

 

I am not selling these images, however if you feel inclined to show support to the troops I urge you to visit www.helpforheroes.org.uk/
