Black and White Portrait

I originally shot this portrait in color eleven years ago for Getty Images. I just rediscovered it and was curious to see what it would look like in black and white. Using Topaz software I made the conversion and really am pleased with the results. I just entered this into Lens Culture’s Black and White Awards.

Portrait of Joseph Smith shot at a summer fair in upstate NY. Part of a series I’m currently shooting for Getty Images. I shot a series of these about 5 years ago and my Getty art director asked if I would revisit this project with them in mind. I love this kind of guerrilla approach to shooting portraits. It doesn’t get much more real than this.

Here’s the latest portrait from my Hard Hat Project, street portraits of people who work in  hard hats. There aren’t too many women out there but I’ve managed to find a few. I found her on the corner of 86th St. and Lexington Ave. I didn’t have my equipment with me but asked her if I could come back and shoot her. She agreed.
