digital outdoor model photography, travel photography, and contemporary people portraits in color

In my photography people play a central role... In memory of Emma Yazzie, 1908-2009,
a remarkable woman.

"In my contemporary digital photography people play a central role, in the way they manifest themselves and show their emotions. People's appearance may depend on how they dress and decorate their bodies, but feelings and emotions are universal. My camera and wide angle lens look at all of these things... my pictures are almost always photos of people, real, or, as the projection of a staged dream world on the sensor of my camera."

-René-Frank Granaada

When I create my contemporary digital portraits in color they often are full length people portraits or model portraits. That way the photography shows best the connection between people or models and the surrounding natural setting, whether it is outdoor model photography, contemporary photo portraits, or travel portraits in color, the natural setting and the color accentuates the connection between us as a people and the natural world that surrounds us. All my digital portraits use the color elements. Models for instance are selected on the basis of color in their appearance and figure lines to create a perfect blend with the natural setting of the location where I photograph them. In my travel portraits you will discover the same color connection to the natural color setting of the surrounding landscape. These elements have influenced the use of color for native peoples throughout the centuries. It has always been a part of the development of fashion trends, whether contemporary or in the old days.
