A couple of years ago there was a show in a charmingly 70s-ish basement 'musée' in Nice by a photographer called Sarah Vermeersch, with large (A2?) prints of faces; some had been tinkered, I think, to express whimsy or pathos in the character and that was charming & effective; but the centrepiece was a pair of children's heads where the charm was matched also by a sort of (appropriate) child-like intensity that was really vivid - not lest because the girl carried a crown that was done in collage fake jewels around her head - a triumph! I think if you want something somewhat removed from what the passport office want, you'll find this photographer can see past what the lens dully reports. And to be technical, I thought I noted that the angle of the shots (in them & elsewhere) accentuated participation in the child's world, rather than as 'little people' in ours. If you google you'll find. Vaut le coup.

Linda Alaniz in Biot is fantastic. She has great rapport with both kids and adults and her black and white photographs are terrific. Would highly recommend her. Take a look at her website - www.alaniz-photo.com

Bruce Thomas is fantastic, have used him many times and have loads of friends who've used him.

I did think he'd moved on to do something else like yaughting photography but perhaps he'd still be available.

You prob need to check him out through Yaughting pages or something like that to contact him initially.
