New Friends' [Portraits]

Home / Art / AboutContact 

I often meet people during my photo-shooting time - I ask to portrait them.

First and Second Portrait:

I was taking pictures around Victoria Park in London when suddenly a little kid jumped into my framework. I took a couple of pictures and moved on. Clearly taking pictures of unknowns kids in the park isn't exactly how a photographer should practice. Then his mother start to call me. I thought, "s****, she will ask to delete it, call the police, who knows...". Actually she (@Sassy) was only seeking some photography tips and at the end I asked if I could take a portrait of her. Sassy complained she wasn't properly dressed and missed some fine make-up but the natural feeling, light and expression were perfect! Also, I loved her smile, see it on the bottom of this page.

Third picture:

This is Annon, Japanese photography teacher based in the US. I was taking pictures around St. Pancras Station in London and he came to me to ask for information. We talked a bit, he asked me if I have been using manual focus - yes. Then I decided to ask if I could take his portrait; he said yes, but no commercial use - sure, no problem. Annon is my great Mr. Miyagi. :)

Fourth portrait:

This is Avi, Art Teacher based in NY. I was taking pictures by the Noorden Markt in Amsterdam NL. I pointed my camera to the mirror and tried to see what I could get from it. He came by, asked what I was doing - just waiting to see what I can get from this mirror. And then I asked if I could take his portrait. I didn't got only his portrait from that mirror, I got an Art Teacher and also a dear friend. :)

Last two pictures, Portrait and selfie:

Ramjith was dressing as King for the Onam, an Indian celebration realised in London - September 2017. Randomly I was passing by and decided to play as photographer, taking pictures of the people dancing, singing. Then him, the king himself, came to me and asked for a selfie together. Asking to take a portrait of him was the natural thing to do. The result is this bright picture and a new friend, through Facebook but still a friend.
