Bill Gekas’ portraiture with a fine art aesthetics

Australian photographer Bill Gekas draws inspiration from classical paintings from Rembrandt, Raphael and Velazquez and makes portraits of his 5-year-old daughter to pay tribute to well-known portraits.

“The key to executing a shoot like this is to have it all planned before the subject enters the scene, the lighting, props, composition etc. From thought to finished post processed shot ready for display a typical shot can average a total of 8 hours.”
