Street Photography I, or, ‘The Two Saints’

The next few posts in this gallery will include some of my street photography from 2011. These shots have been posted elsewhere, but not yet to this gallery. I consider these images, and this period, extremely important in shaping me as a photographer. Please note that whenever possible, I obtain permission from the subjects of my photos.

America III, or, ‘The Wynn, The Cosmopolitan, and the Desert’

This will be the last post in my America series. Of the 1,000 photographs I took in Las Vegas, I feel those I have included in these three articles best communicate my experience of the city.

I stayed in the Wynn hotel for a few days. It might be regarded as the epitome of opulence. I certainly enjoyed my visit. I also spent an evening listening to the Jennifer Keith Quintet, who were excellent.

America II, or, ‘The People of Las Vegas’

I was in Las Vegas on business, but I spent some time walking the strip during the evenings. I asked a number of locals if I could take their portraits, and almost all obliged. Below is a selection of my favourites. Included is what I consider the best shot from the trip.

Sometimes, what is missing from a photograph says more than what is present.

America I, or ‘Landscapes in Colour’

I recently spent a week in Las Vegas. The next two or three entries in this gallery will contain images from that trip,  which included a drive from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon in Arizona.

The below are a few landscapes.

Little Girl

When was first commissioned to produce a photograph, I worried that I would lose both my integrity as an artist and passion for the art. I had spoken with professionals who had once loved photography, but had reduced it to a simple nine to five, and no longer found pleasure in it.

Since working as a freelance photographer over the last few years, on the contrary, the experience has sharpened my images.

I was recently asked if I would photograph a friend’s daughter. This was my favourite image from the afternoon together.
