When I first saw this image I thought wow, when I looked on the photographer’s web page I said wow again.
Bill Gekas is an award winning and self taught, fine-art portrait photographer. He was born and lives in Melbourne, Australia.
He took a series of pictures of his daughter influenced by the style of classic paintings and whilst they aren’t always exact copies of other pictures I think he has absolutely nailed the style, tone and lighting. His lighting setups are often very simple with relatively modest equipment but the results as you can see are just great and unsurprisingly he has won many awards for his work.
