Male: I love shooting people. I mean, I respond to people, I'm inspired by people. I love portraits, I love faces, I love expe, I love everything about shooting people, everything. And I'm really drawn to it. Just like some people are drawn to shooting flowers, and, and trees, and mountains, I'm drawn to people. They're my landscape, really. And what I like about shooting people when it comes to a travel context is that, in the people themselves, I can see the place. I do see the place. Whether, and I, I like shooting people in their, in their context.
And even though it can be even a tight portrait. I see the place in who they are, in what they wear, in their smile or the non-smile. and so I, I love people. When you're photographing people if you really excited about people like I am, I think that comes through. And then I engage I talk to them, I just you know, human to human you know? What'd you have for breakfast, what are you doing today, how's your daughter. You know, really, truly find out who they are, try to find out who they are, be interested in them.
And listen to them and, and then I say hey do you mind you know, if I take a picture. I don't go in there and just start taking pictures. Boy that would turn most people off right away. Camera's there they see the camera. They see right away that I'm a photographer, I don't try to hide it. There's no stealthiness going on. And if they say no. I respect it. You know, I want take this much. But then sometimes I'll push him a little bit more. I'll say, (UNKNOWN) beautiful eyes, oh my God, let me just take a picture of your eyes. And if you don't like it I'll erase it (LAUGH) because there are some times when I really want (LAUGH) that picture, and I'm just, I'm willing to like, lip it.
Let them know that this is really important. And I pushed a little more than other times.
