Stuart Kasdorf the Photographer
Foremost Stuart is an artist. Woven throughout the course of his business duties is a constant desire to ‘feed' himself creatively. Stuart is constantly working on one personal project or another, that range from people, scenics and video. Stuart's artist statement is this: "Art is the hope in the artistic, and it transcends culture, time, and geography. Art is the scarcer big brother in the family of the artistic."
Stuart's philosophy that is well integrated into his life and business is to treat all people with dignity and respect. His portrait work shows a high degree of respect to the ‘subjects' of his portraiture and customers whom he tends to elevate.
Stuart's great rapport with people has the benefit of helping his subjects to relax to reveal their unguarded portrait during the portrait session. Our thorough planning prior to the portrait session will get your project going in the appropriate direction for location, environment, clothing and impact. Stuart is a master of lighting, composition and intuitive insight. The right combination of these elements will assist giving the finished portraits their high artistic and historic value. The best images are selected and finished to the best of our abilities utilizing both soft and hard proofing to bring out the subtle textures and hues in the portraits. All portrait are 'colour struck' unto the highest quality photographic materials that may include stretched artists canvas.
"Your family portraits Stu are unlike any I've ever seen. You not only record how people look but your lens seems to look right into the soul and capture the true essence of a family and the way they interact in a way that is very non intrusive and complimentary. I've seen a lot of portraits in my time Stuart but when I think of the very best I always think of you, you really are the master."
-- Rodney S. Braun, Master of Photographic Arts
