Stranger Portraits

These few are the first I’ve actually gone out of my way to do. It was uncomfortable and felt incredibly intrusive to me, but perhaps I was the only one that felt that way. Plenty of refinements needed in approach, but considering how I’ve always shied away from exactly this, it’s a milestone.


  1. Huge congrats on the milestone. In time it starts to feel more natural and much less intrusive. ‘Get over yourself’ as Daniel continually said to me. It is a good test and challenge to ‘have’ to do portraits. It is astounding to learn that in many places in the world (minus Argentina and Bolivia for instance) people do not mind having a photo taken and that it’s actually really cool and fun making these portraits.

      It’s a constant reminder, this getting over oneself thing. Long way to go to get decent portraits, but a damned good exercise!
