"In fashion and portraiture, it's not only shooting the beautiful model, but also capturing the background to support the subject." (Lars Johnson)

A portrait shows more than just how someone looks, it shows character. This is why this month, we want you to share your most expressive portrait in our Picture of the Month Contest. Grab your camera, find the right model, and lose yourself in this world full of possibilities. And don’t forget that often the most striking portraits are those that break the rules!
