An in-depth conversation about portrait photography. Host Frederick Van Johnson is joined by a panel of accomplished portrait photographers including Tim Engle, Troy Miller & Aiyush Pachnanda.
Last fall, we produced a series of Fireside Chats for our AI Insider community. Hosted by Frederick Van Johnson from This Week in Photo, each session brought together amazingly talented photographers for an informal discussion of a specific genre of photography.
AI Insiders got the first look at this exclusive content. Now, we are releasing one per week to the general public. Today, Portraiture.
