à la Dutch Master paintings

When a hobby becomes a passion project something powerful happens.

Take Bill Gekas, a portrait photographer from Melbourne. He is entirely self taught.
Since 2010, Bill has been creating a series of portraits of his beautiful five-year-old daughter Athena, inspired by Dutch masters’ classic paintings. What was originally intended to be just a few personal portraits, became an ongoing art-project for Bill and his family. Mastering the intricacies of studio lighting, combined with a huge amount of preparation painstakingly undertaken by the photographer and his wife in their spare time, has allowed Bill to capture these incredible images.
