Faces Photography

Faces Photography

A photographic collection of faces around the world.

This is a collection of people I met during my journey.  I call it travel portraiture. I asked them to pose for me. It may be daunting at first, but the opportunity to capture the people that give the place its character and special atmosphere is very special. Everytime when I step out the door and go to capture the essence of a place through it’s local people I feel excited.

I use no flash, only the available light.
