Global Impressions of Portraits by Steadman Uhlich: The Comments on the Work in General.
“What strikes me is the expression, how each person has a unique personality.
Your portraits give an impression from the soul rather than being a mirror image.
Every person looks natural and him or herself, that shows to me that you really do the effort to get to know your subjects.”
Philippe, Warsaw, Poland
“Your subjects seem to have an ‘aura’ of wisdom and balance.
It’s like you have captured them in a moment of personal reflection and even meditation.
This is also true for the portraits of the kids.
I get the impression it is more spiritual than physical. It is about the world that lies behind the eyes.
You don’t communicate through your photos on a physical or even emotional level, but instead on a spiritual level.”
Daan, Utrecht, Netherlands
“Your work is impressive.
Choosing one photo only would not be fair for the rest of the portfolio.
The first thing I felt when I saw your work is that every photo shows not only a character but also the essence of it.
I can feel how the energy flows from your work.
When I see your photos, I can feel the essence of the character on the portrait and that´s the greatest achievement.”
Santiago, Buenas Aires, Argentina
“Your portraits are touching in a different level than I have ever seen before.
They are very expressive and real.
They don’t look made up or posed. They are so natural and even more spiritual.
You portraits are not just pictures, they are exquisite art.
I am stunned by their beauty and spiritual strength.”
Rebecca, Tehran, Iran
Your work is really wonderful. How you can make an ordinary person so perfect and fantastic!
All of the pictures on the website are full of mystery…
I can’t find words to describe my feelings when I first entered your website.
Each of your works is really a masterpiece.”
Huixian, Taizhou, China
“I was just stunned to see so much excellent portraiture!
You have a wonderful ability to photograph what is ‘inside’ the body, not just the facade.
Really, in so many ways you have captured your subject’s soul.
The lighting, processing, and composition are all superb.”
Bob, Walla Walla, Washington, USA
“When I view your portraits, I do not just see that person, but I feel as if I know them a little or I would like to know them.
Your portraits are very intimate and I like that.”
Marcus, Longview, Texas, USA
“The photographs are straightforward and simple, yet they communicate volumes.
The images rely on expression, texture, and relationship rather than props and gimmicks to stimulate viewer response.
Though I’m sure in many cases your direction of the pose was deliberate, it’s a true testament to your expertise and I’m sure the rapport with your subject, that not a single image looks posed.
I feel as if I’m getting an honest glimpse of an individual ‘in the moment.’”
Kate, Boston, Massachusetts, USA
“I find all of your work quite stunning. “
Kevin, Adelaide, Australia
“I find your photography to be downright beautiful.
The lighting, tones, and mood are both powerful and elegant at the same time.
Mark, Lilongwe, Malawi
“These are some of the most beautiful portraits I have ever seen.”
Yakim, Rosh Ha-Ayin, Israel
“I am particularly moved by your portraits of women.
It is rare, in my opinion, to see a portrait of a woman that displays a non-sexual strength and beauty and simply shows her as an individual.
I had not realized how rare, until I realized how refreshing and fascinating seeing these portraits was to me.”
Gwen, London UK
“The impression I am left with is one of a very perpetual and natural connection with each of your subjects.
As a portrait artist, you know this is not a requirement to get ‘nice’ portraits. But it is absolutely a requirement if one is to get the real heart-stoppers, those faces that become firmly lodged in part of your mind and can be easily recalled even years later.
That you have achieved this level of trust, where one can look into the eyes of the image and feel like they know something about the person, over such a broad range of subjects, is truly remarkable.
These people are lucky, all of them, to have been your subjects.”
Todd, Iowa City, Iowa, USA
“I love your pictures.
The different pictures showing different people at different ages from different cultures and countries are sensational.
Emotional expressions are just endless. One with a specific emotion at a particular moment would find a personal connection or linkage with any of these pictures in one way or another.
And, that is the beauty of looking at your pictures expressing the differences.”
Anantachai, Bangkok, Thailand
“The way you capture depth and details with your cast of lighting gives your photographs a rich three-dimensional quality reminiscent of the paintings of the classic masters that I found amazing.”
Homero, Masaya, Nicaraugua
“You have a very fine body of work.
I like your bold, classical style.
Elegant and yet deceptively simple.
And the posture of your models, lighting and compositions are all exemplary.
I also liked that there are people of all ages on your site and all are treated with the same careful, well crafted, and studied hand.
Liam, Bedfordshire, UK
“You truly have a gift. All of your photos are astoundingly pure and beautiful.”
Caroline, Brisbane, Australia
“I am struck with the way your subjects speak to me. They all have a story to tell and you have captured it.”
Craig, Edmonton Alberta, Canada
“Your work is fantastic. A very strong and inspiring body of images.”
Chris, Sydney, Australia
“Strength, grace, humor, intelligence and beauty.
I feel as though each of the portraits in your portfolio somehow have aspects of these and that you have managed to get the subject to project their individual personality.
The work as a whole illustrates some of the best human qualities there are. “
Gwen, London, UK
“You are a Master, a Master Artist. Your work is awe inspiring.”
R.H., Sacramento, California, USA
“I am amazed with the overall quality.
The main thing that caught my eye was how you use the light. “
Rui, Oporto, Portugal
“The images were breathtaking.”
Josh, Nairobi, Kenya
“You have a gift for communicating an emotional connection between your subject and your audience.
I find myself asking: ‘What were they thinking?’
Or, ‘What were you talking about?’ Thank you for the inspiration.”
Gene, Windsor, Canada
“You bring out the personality of a person.”
Simon, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, UK
“You manage to capture the emotion in such an amazing way.”
Radoslav, Sofia, Bulgaria
“Absolutely fabulous work.”
Jeff, Chicago, Illinois, USA
“I take my hat off to your use of light! A wonderful thing to behold.”
Stale, Oslo, Norway
“These photos each make me want to know a little more about the person in the photograph.
Each photo is technically sound as we would expect, but more importantly, capture enough of the ‘person’ to make the observer want to look longer and harder at the photograph.”
Danny, Denver, Colorado, USA
“You must see one of Steadman’s creations in person to truly appreciate it.
To simply refer to it as photography is short-minded.
It is truly a work of art that draws your eye continuously. Your heart follows thereafter.”
Bill, Birmingham, Alabama, USA

These quotes are from people who saw his work up close while it was hanging in an art gallery at full size, often at “Life Size.” While you are able to view hundreds of photographs on this website or in Steadman’s online portfolios, you are only able to see these are low resolution and small sized images. The real photos Steadman makes are generally much larger than what you are seeing online. In some cases these photos are up to 5 feet tall! Others have been 10 feet wide! Even his portraits are generally life-size and so most are seen larger than you can see on your laptop or computer.

So, if you will read some of these Art Gallery Visitor comments, you should get an idea of how someone may respond if you display a portrait or fine art photograph that Steadman has made for you, whether it is in your home or office.
