Street Portraits

Taking photos of strangers is both exhausting and exciting, and sometimes scary. However, if I walk past an interesting character and do nothing, I feel a million times worse because I end up kicking myself over the lost opportunity.

When you do manage to take a portrait, it feels incredible. That overwhelming feeling when someone you’ve just met looks straight at your camera, that little bit of awkwardness in the portrait which is often necessary for the magic to happen… then the process of ‘click, click, click’, ‘thank you and goodbye’, and the afterthought of, ‘Wow, that was weird, but surely something decent came out of it!’
