About this title


Like my father before me, I have sought the perfection of one moment in my subject's life. Maurice LaClaire taught me how to block out what I might want to bring to the camera and instead open my eyes to what the people in front of the lens are showing me. What details - what characteristics - what identifying grace notes belong to them alone.

Thus, this book is my way of thanking my father by honoring him and by explaining the art of portraiture. Maurice LaClaire is a recognized pioneer in color portraiture both for his technical creativity and for his artistic integrity. Color portraiture has been my life's passion as well. Since most people who will be reading this book have cameras and take their own pictures, I already share our readers' joy of photography. Despite the fact that the language of vision is not easily converted to the written word, my hope is that this book will help readers better understand - and I hope appreciate - the craft of portraiture.


"David is a master of skillful lighting and composition. " -- Joyce Wilson, Master Photographer and Fine Artist - Brooks Institute Instructor

"The name LaClaire has been known and respected by their peers in photography for over eight decades..." -- Richard Atamian, Master Photographer - Santa Barbara, CA
