Have your portrait taken

Have your portrait taken

The coming months I will be working on several documentary projects. I’m really looking forward to taking my time to carefully execute new series. Planning, getting in touch with the right people, getting proper authorization to shoot in certain locations etc.

But I also like quick results. Which means I’m doing a side project in the mean time: I’ll be taking people’s portraits. It’s that simple. The reason I’m doing this, is because I tend to get nervous when photographing people. Not exactly the best trait for photographer to have, right? So that’s why I’d like to fix it… With your help.

So how does it work?
I’ll come by your place with my stuff and we’ll be done in no time. Don’t expect fancy lighting and make-up artists, just me and my camera. Best case scenario? You invest a couple of minutes of your time for a photo which you might use as your cool new Facebook profile pic. Worst case? You won’t like it and you’ll delete it. That doesn’t sound so bad, now does it?

If you live in Amsterdam and are willing to participate, please let me know.

EDIT: Wow, the power of social media. Within no time, I have gathered a list of people which I’ll start with. Perhaps I’ll call on volunteers again in the future, but this is plenty for now. Thanks everyone!
