Friends are easy to come by, but maintaining that relationship is another story.
One of my goals this year is to take more portraits of friends and strangers. Strangers? Yes! What’s the worst they can say? No? Well I’ll take my chances
With photography it allows you to get acquainted with so many people who will eventually become your friends or even best friends. One of my good friends who happens to be a photographer once told me, in order to take ones portrait, its easier to build a friendship with them first, in that way they will be more comfortable with you taking their picture. Apart from photography, most times you realize you both have much more in common and can learn from each other.
Here’s a few shots with some of my photography friends, good friends if I may add(lol).
