This portrait was taken as part of a two day portrait photography workshop with photographer Jason Evans. The first day was spent talking about portraiture. On the second day, participants were supported to take a series of portraits of their sitter in and around a studio in Shoreditch, East London. They chose from a range of materials, equipment, backdrops and props to produce their portraits in the style that they wanted.
