Man on the Street

Today was my first test shoot with a model from Major Model Management Paris. I’m excited to get editing these! The shoot came together pretty quickly but I think we got some good shots in a short amount of time. With Paris fashion week coming up soon a lot of models are running off to castings and wardrobe stylists, hair and makeup are often pretty busy, not to mention given the timing, pulling clothes from labels or PR reps is next to impossible so close to showtime. There wasn’t time for that but we made it work.

So, yesterday I was running around, looking for a photo storeand eyeing locations for the shoot. I came across a park around the area I’m currently staying in and not sure if I would want to use it for the shoot, but curious about it, decided to take a walk through it and check things out.

This man saw me shooting a bit and was quite interested. In fact, he actually asked me to take his photo! Usually I have to do the asking when it’s someone just on the street. So, I obliged and took a few shots. Things got a little weird when he continued to follow me around, insisting I take more photos of him and then suggesting he take a photo of me! I will never put my camera into someone else’s hands, that’s for sure. I’m sure he was a harmless old man, but when he continued to follow me out of the park I admit I was little uneasy about what he was up to. It was an interesting part of my day I suppose.

    Great portrait, although he does sound a little creepy!
