Portraiture is a very old art form dating back 5000 years in ancient Egypt. Before the invention of photography a painted sculpture or drawn portrait was the only way to record the appearance of someone. Portraits are works of art that record the likenesses of humans or animals that are alive or have been alive. The word portraiture is used to describe this category of art.

The purpose of a portrait is to memorialise an image of someone for the future. It can be done with painting, photography, sculpture, or almost any other medium. Some portraiture is also created by artists purely for the sake of creating art, rather than working on commission. The human body and face are fascinating subjects that many artists like to study in their personal work.

At Anthony Paul Photography we study our subjects to bring out the character and personality. we want to ensure the image will last a life time and will be treasured my family generations to come.

A portrait is a moment in time that represents a live of someone or something.
