If you are interested in learning a bit of background to any of the shots above, a quick search of TFIPM by the person’s name should bring up the original post. This post is dedicated to George Skeggs, my first street portraitee – without him there would have been no beginning…

Then and Now, 2016– Then and Now, 2016 –

On 20th December 2014, Ashley Lily Scarlett and I started a conversation in pictures called Between Scarlett and Guest. Ashley is based in Sydney, Australia and I’m in Beckenham, UK – we have never met. But we trade pictures on an a sometimes daily basis.

Below is my side of the conversation from 11th September 2016 to 3rd February 2017. It incorporates archive images and those taken specifically in response to one of Ashley’s shots.

You can start “reading” Between Scarlett and Guest from any point (and read backwards or forwards) and it should still make some kind of sense.

Fuki was just outside Urban Outfitters in Covent Gardend when I spotted her. She walks pretty quickly, but I caught up with her and she was great about me taking a few shots. This is the first and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Fuki! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Paul Smith), 2017– Street Portrait (for and of Paul Smith), 2017 –

Paul Smith is one of my favourite designers – I’ve been wearing his shirts and jeans for decades and got married in a Paul Smith suit. So, it was fantastic to run into him in Covent Garden, and he was great about me taking a few shots. This is the first and is my favourite. Thanks very much, Paul! Hope you like your picture.
