Street Portrait (for and of David) #1, 2013

David wasn’t so sure of my motives when I approached him, I don’t think. But he agreed to me taking a few shots. This was the first, and my favourite.  I like it because it’s not clear whether it’s a portrait or a street shot. And, let’s face it, ambiguity is fun! Anyway, I really liked David’s style – it’s difficult to wear a hat well, but he does, and it’s a great suit and tie combination too. Thanks very much for agreeing to the shots, David! Hope you like your pictures.

Street Portrait (for and of Lulu), 2013

I’ve got a fairly healthy backlog of street portraits at the moment, but I thought I would share this picture of Lulu I took today with you. Because, well, she’s wonderful! What amazing style! And a truly fantastic smile! Thanks so much, Lulu! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Richard Bass) #2, 2013

So, having indulged in a little time travel with Claire I’m going to take us back…to an earlier time…the Wednesday before. This is Richard Bass. He was walking down a pretty much deserted street. To say he stood out would be an understatement – I ran over to him and he was great about me taking so many shots. Again, Richard seems to inhabit his clothes, so although they are obviously period perfect, they are also very much part of who he is. What an absolute gent! Thanks very much, Richard! Hope you like your pictures.

Street Portrait (for and of Mick) #1, 2013

Today it was unexpectedly cold. But I managed to keep warm by running after Mick. I spotted him on the other side of the road and went for it. He was really nice about stopping given how cold it was. What can I say? Incredible, honest style. Thanks so much, Mick! Hope you like your pictures.

Street Portrait (for and of David Charkham), 2013

David exudes so much style that I zeroed in on him from quite a distance. But the devil is, of course, in the detail. I was thrilled when David agreed to a portrait – this is my favourite of several shots. Thanks very much, David! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Adam), 2013

Do I need to explain why I asked Adam for a photograph? – amazingly stylish, single-minded and witty to boot – he was great fun to shoot. This is my favourite of the shots I took. The jacket is a World War I officer’s tunic. Thanks very much, Adam! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Mark), 2013

This was taken 5th February – it was a busy day for portraits. The pavement was busy as well, but Mark stood out immediately and I was delighted when he agreed to a few shots. This is my favourite. What a great look! A man out of time. Thanks very much, Mark! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Amparo), 2013

This was taken today on Kingsway. Amparo wanted to know the way to Trafalgar Square, so I traded the information for a photograph (well, two), and boy did she have a great smile. Thanks very much, Amparo! Hope  my directions got you there and that you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Grant), 2013

It was his hat and the cut of his clothes that got my attention. I tailed Grant from a point on Lamb’s Conduit Street to somewhere near High Holborn. And he was great about me taking a few shots. This is my favourite, for his frank expression. Thanks very much, Grant! Hope you like your picture.

Street Portrait (for and of Adam) #1, 2013

So, this was something of a stake-out.

As I was walking down the street, I spotted Adam out of the corner of my eye, standing behind the counter of Farthings. He was dealing with a customer, an elderly gentleman, so I waited. But their transaction seemed to last forever so, after a few minutes, I lost heart and went away. Just as I was leaving the area, I saw the customer in the street. Hazaar! I bounced into the shop, and to my delight Adam agreed to a few shots. These are my favourites. Thanks very much Adam! Hope you like your pictures.
