Headshots in the Street #27

HeadshotOnTheStreet27-1-5-2014This is clothing designer Teddy Lawson of SDRR Clothing. I thought his outfit was interesting so I actually called out to him from behind to ask if he’d like to pose. He was very kind and even retraced his steps back to the alley so I could shoot him against a colored wall.

Headshots in the Street is a series of unplanned, totally improvised shots of people encountered on the streets of Los Angeles. I treat each one as a mini-session, sometimes lasting no more than thirty seconds. Each photo is given some minimal retouching and color correction before posting. The people are from all walks of life. Some actually turn out to be actors or models. Sometimes we talk a little and I hand out my business card so that the person can check to see if I post their photo.
