Portrait of a Psychotherapist

6th June 2016

Psychotherapist David Slattery has long been on my list of people to photograph and after many years of bumping into him at parties and cafes, I finally managed to pin him down!

He has a fascinating range of expressions from very intense to pure fun. An expression can make or break an image and as this full set of images show, some work better than others.

As is so often the case, I didn’t spot several subtle details about Dave and his environment until after I’d taken the picture, realising that the things that I hadn’t noticed actually enhanced the shots.
