    I really love the style of your portraits. I love the combintation of simplicity and clutter and even in the photos with more detail in how the subject is still drawn out.

    I am a keen amateur and just wondering what you use to take the photos – camera wise and other “paraphernalia” (it looks like natural light to me but do you use reflectors or something? It doesn’t seem that in a lot of the circumstances it would be useful). Just trying to improve my eye in understanding the technical stuff.
