It depends. I'm not consistent in which direction I hold the camera when I go from horizontal to vertical. Most of the time, I hold it with my right hand below and use my index finger to release the shutter. It's more natural to me because I can use my thumb on the film advance lever. When I'm using a slower speed and I'm holding the camera with both hands and pressing it into my face to brace, I use my thumb on the shutter.
Edit: I'm only speaking of using rangefinders. With SLR's, I always use my index finger and hold the camera with the right hand above in vertical position.
