I get asked all the time, “what do you like to photograph?” Well, I like the yachts, the nice homes, spectacular commercial structures, beautiful landscapes, and food, of course…
But it always comes back to people. Because all the other is just “stuff”.
What’s a sunset without your SO? You can eat the food, that’s a bonus (if stylists and photographers haven’t put their hands all over it).
But, actually getting to talk to and make photos of hundreds of people can’t be beat.
So where is the real fun? It’s with everyday folks, the folks at the very bottom, and the folks at the top.
The folks on the bottom have such compelling needs, interesting stories, and lessons to teach us all… they are, perhaps, the best photographic subjects.
The people at the very top… take Nelson Mandela, for example, have no entourage, no pr people, need no introduction, are happy to meet you, and are great to work with.
It’s a panoply, as they say.
