Since 5th May 2012 I have been regularly walking up to strangers and asking them if I can take their photograph. I’m drawn to the stylish and the interesting and all of the people featured here are one or the other or both. I’m extremely grateful to all of them for letting me take their photograph – Londoners (temporary or permanent) remain a really cool bunch. These shots were taken in the Winter 2013.

All of the shots above have appeared in previous posts (apologies to my regular visitors), but I’ve added two new shots below that I didn’t manage to publish in Winter.

Sophie, 2013

This was taken on another freezing day. Sophie was dressed for the weather. Fantastic layering! And what a smile! Thanks very much for letting me take your portrait Sophie! Hope you like it.

Andy, 2013

I spotted Andy outside Charing Cross Station in London, UK and immediately wanted to photograph him. He is pure mod, down to the bowling bag and shoes. Little did I know he would have such a great smile. I salute your fantastic style, Andy! Thanks so much for letting me take your picture! Hope you like it.

Double Street Portrait (for and of Zane and Robin), 2012

It was supposed to be sunny today, so I set out full of optimism, but pretty much as soon as I stepped out of the door there were spits of rain. Quietly cussing I did the rounds of some usual haunts, but nothing was working. And then I saw Zane and Robin, and was delighted when they agreed to a few shots. I think they’re just fabulous – separately they’re extremely stylish, but together what an incredible look. Anyway, thank you Zane and Robin for rescuing my afternoon! Hope you like your picture.

Double Street Portrait (for and of Tim Pritchett and Elle A), 2012

The same day I took the shots of Siena (see previous post), I saw Tim Pritchett and Elle A outside a sushi bar. They were so cool. What a fantastic couple! To my utter delight, they agreed to having their portrait taken. Tim suggested the fish and chip shop as a backdrop. This was the first of six shots and the one they liked the best. Thanks Tim and Elle! Hope you like your picture (now you can see it properly).

Since 5th May 2012 I have been regularly walking up to strangers and asking them if I can take their photograph. I’m drawn to the stylish and the interesting and all of the people featured here are one or the other or both. I’m extremely grateful to all of them for letting me take their photograph – Londoners (temporary or permanent) remain a really cool bunch. These shots were taken between 7th August and 8th November 2012.

When I started out, because of nerves, I forgot to ask the people their names. I’m getting better at remembering now, but there are still occasions when I get caught up in the moment and forget, and I can only apologise to those people I didn’t ask.

Most of the shots here have appeared in previous posts (apologies to my regular visitors), but I’ve tried to round up some previously unpublished to spice the montage up a bit.

Street Portrait (for and of Chen), 2012

Chen very kindly agreed to a few shots the day before yesterday. Very stylish and ultra-modern. Thanks for posing, Chen! Hope you like your picture.

This shot was taken behind the British Transport Museum in London, UK.

When I started out I continually forgot to ask the person their name (it was the nerves). I’m getting better at remembering now, but there are still occasions when I get caught up in the moment and forget, and I can only apologise to those people I didn’t ask.
