Street Portrait (for and of Stefano), 2014- Street Portrait (for and of Stefano), 2014 -

Keen-eyed regulars here at TFIPM will recognise Stefano. Way back in September 2012, he posed for my tenth street portrait (you can see the post here). I often walk past Concrete Hair Salon, on Drury Lane, and occasionally I see Stefano outside on a break. I’m always tempted to say hello again, and today I did and it was really nice. Stefano was great about me taking a few shots; this was the first and is my favourite. And then we had a brief chat about the ubiquity of beards and the stylishness of George Skeggs. It was great to catch up. Thanks very much, Stefano! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Christina), 2014- Street Portrait (for and of Christina), 2014 -

There are times when subjects for a street portrait are few and far between – and they can last for weeks. I was wandering along Great Queen Street wondering when the drought would end, when I spotted Christina on the other side of the road. Her look was so striking I knew I wanted to take her photograph, and dear reader I ran to catch her up. She was on the phone, so I waited until she hung up and asked for a shot. Five shots later, I got this one – my favourite. What an incredibly stylish woman! Thanks very much, Christina! Hope you like your picture.

This was taken on Bedford Square. I’d been walking for hours, without much to show for it, when I spotted Scrappy – I loved the combination of styles. He was great about me taking a few shots of him, but he insisted they not be obvious. This is the least obvious of the bunch in my opinion and the best. Thanks very much, Scrappy! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Besrat), 2014- Street Portrait (for and of Besrat), 2014 -

There’s a lot of grey stone on Kingsway – most of the buildings are imposing architecturally but chromatically reserved, so it made a refreshing change to see a great block of blue in the form of scaffold sheeting outside one of them. Besrat was standing outside the site. I really liked his safety glasses and the way his high-visibility vest contrasted with the blue backdrop, so I asked him for a photograph and he was great about it. I ended up taking three or four, and this is my favourite. Thanks very much, Besrat! Hope you like your picture.
