I met this couple in a shopping centre car park. I loved their car and asked to take a portrait with them, they was more than happy to say yes.
There is a lot of detail on the car and you have to look close to see it all. It reminded me of Mad Max, which they took as a compliment.

On a market stall in a tudor village I met a photographer selling cakes.
We chatted about our interest and camera collection before I asked for a portrait in exchange for a chocolate cake.
Funny how a camera around your neck will start the most innocent conversations.

Walking around the Northern Quarter in Manchester early on a Sunday morning I noticed the amazing colour of Cameron’s hair and the glint in the badges on Louann’s bag. Being a badge geek myself (and wishing I could have green hair) it was worth stopping to them and having a chat. They were very happy to pose for me on Manchester fantastic graffiti backdrops and were natural at showing attitude. It was fun to meet such inspirational people on a lazy day with such interesting personalities. Cannot wait to send them this image.

Reinaldo Miranda is an outstanding street performer and looked the part. He was more than happy to pose for a portrait and swept the Manchester crowds away with his entertainment.

Chilling out in the warm bank holiday evening sun. Luisa clocked my camera. We chatted for a moment about the Yashica and photography in general before I plucked up the courage to ask for a portrait.
Luisa was great fun to photo. She has a wonderful flirtatious personality and a glowing smile that made working with her very easy. Definitely fast witted and funny by far. It was a delight to spend time chatting to her whilst she sold ice creams to the happy crowd.

Bumped into the music artist that is Peaky whilst walking around the market square in Camden Town, London.
We exchanged artistic tastes, cd’s and pictures.
An awesome guy with great underground rap lyrics, I was glad he stopped me for a chat.
Look him up…. and donate a few quid to his efforts in making it to tour Japan.
