Hello all, for those of you that don’t know, I’ve opened an Instagram account, which I use to post works in progress and highlights from my street portrait project. The latest addition is Ally from 2013. Thanks Ally!

The account is: @richardguest9440

Street Portrait (for and of Jenna), 2018

– Street Portrait (for and of Jenna), 2016 –

It’s been a while since I last took a street portrait. The project, which has been going since 2012, seemed to have ground to a halt…and then I spotted Jenna. And she was great about me taking a few shots. This is the first of four shots and is my favourite. Thanks very much Jenna!

Street Portrait (for and of Gary Numan), 2018– Street Portrait (for and of Gary Numan), 2018 –

Last Wednesday I ran into Gary Numan and his dad Tony in Central London. We had a bit of a chat and they were really nice people and great about me taking a few shots.

As a young teenager I was obsessed with Gary’s album Telekon – I bought two of the three singles released from it and eventually the album. It still holds up as a great piece of work.

But he’s got a great catalogue that’s well worth checking out, including a new critically acclaimed album called Savage. The video below was taken from a celebration, earlier this year, of the UK music programme (now sadly off air) The Old Grey Whistle Test.

The portrait of Gary is a crop from the photograph below. On the left is his dad, Tony. Thanks very much letting me take the shot Gary and Tony.

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…
