I’m most comfortable rolling into shoots with an assistant or two and a truck full of gear and then spending most of the day lighting and composing one or two scenes, so it was fun doing over 20 of these mini-assignments for EBX. I’ve never considered myself a photojournalist, but this felt like journalist bootcamp. Most of these people I didn’t even have an appointment with, I just showed up with a tripod and an on camera flash and had to figure out how to make it work with a subject who wasn’t expecting me (and I couldn’t tell them what the photo was for!).
Thanks to Mark-Jason Solofa, pictured above, for making me wish I wasn’t bald so I could sit in his amazing barber shop.
