Reply TheNameNerd says: August 8, 2013 at 4:58 pm I love the music in these videos… Reply Oremoose says: August 8, 2013 at 7:09 pm As a student in Photography and an aspiring portrait photographer; I loved this and wished it went more in depth with greater explanations not just the thoughts of these great artists.

Reply Repeatclicks1 says: August 9, 2013 at 12:44 pm My least favourite type of portraiture is the type Matt Hoyle creates. The usual glossy, slick, sickly, over produced texture to them. This is about as dishonest as photography gets, next to fashion mags. I don't think he captures the essence of anybody, all of it is lost in the Photoshop/Lightroom phase. Blech. Reply Yogawerk Essen says: August 9, 2013 at 12:56 pm just beautiful and inspiring Reply Ian Olsen says: August 9, 2013 at 1:36 pm Is that Dustin Browder sword swallowing? Reply ijeremyoliver says: August 10, 2013 at 6:47 am I feel like the 'selfie' should have been included in the history? Maybe that would have distracted from the mystique of the piece as a whole. Reply John Lenin says: August 10, 2013 at 3:42 pm Photography today is all about gimmicks. Everything is based on some drunken conversation "wouldn't it be neat if we did X?", then adding some kind of self-serving explanation after the fact to make it seem meaningful. And, of course, that's where it should stay – as an idea floating in the bottom of a beer can. Reply Maker Flix says: August 10, 2013 at 11:49 pm Added to MakerFlix(dot)com!

Reply Snooks says: August 12, 2013 at 4:27 pm Thank you. This was thoughtful and inspiring Reply Matthew Cosslett says: August 13, 2013 at 9:31 am If you guys want to look further into portraiture i highly recommend Benoit Pallie's 'stranger' project. Reply Juan the Alligator says: August 15, 2013 at 1:37 am What? Reply Hatem Kotb says: August 15, 2013 at 7:23 pm "I wanted to give him the power over his image." That was neat. Reply Oliver AB says: August 19, 2013 at 7:16 pm Very good video but just one thing, the music that starts around 5:20 is definitely not "Arrival of the Birds" by Lara Bartlett. I mean sure Lara posted this on her soundcloud but she does not mention that it's in fact "Saturn Strobe" by Pantha du Prince. Not cool. Reply / says: August 23, 2013 at 3:35 am Fucking loved this. 4:15, super fascinating concept.

Reply Imperious Images says: October 10, 2015 at 5:51 pm Any one know what that shark tooth patterned object between the camera and the subject seen at 1:20 is?? Could it be something for portraits to make some type of vignette? Reply newpixeldude says: June 18, 2016 at 2:59 am Finally a video showing real artistry from amazing creators. Those images stay with you as you watch them Reply Francisco Ortega says: September 21, 2016 at 5:57 pm I loved this video. Personally im working on a portrait series giving realism or a face to mental illness. My plan is to cover every mental illness. I started with depression and suicide. This shot was really successful and deep. My second is schizophrenia. Then I will continue from there on.
