Street Photography II, or, ‘In the Metro’

This, the second post in a street photography series, focuses on the Parisian metro, and the characters found in it.

These are two of the more controversial photographs I’ve taken.

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.

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.
