This is a lovely habit! I'd love to do the same but I didn't yet have the courage to ask a stranger to pose for me :)

Do you know Brandon from Humans of New York? I love his work as well..

P.S. Great capture of the indian with moustache :)

Hi Dark3y3s - I'll have to look Brandon up tomorrow.

The guy in India was quite funny. Some kids wanted me to take their pictures so I did but they thought I should also take their uncle. He started very unsure then ended up laughing as I asked just 1 more for another 10 or so shot
I was able to print them and return the following day and then did more.

Many people are suspicious when you first ask but very often they come around after a chat - have hundreds now, just need to remember to write down all the side stories.

All the best
:-)

Great! I find always very difficult to approach people and ask them to be photographed...do you have any tips about that?
Anyway, beautiful pictures!!!

I've thought of doing that a few times but like others here, didn't have the courage. I assume you're getting model releases of these folks. How does that work for you? Got any tips on getting them to sign the releases?

Yep, definitely look up Humans of New York website, it's great :) It also has some side stories as well.

It's always nice to be able to give back to those people that let you photograph them. :) Keep up the great work!

Nice work! So interesting to see the different styles of clothes, hair, background environment, cultural elements... Really enjoyed checking out the people in your portfolio.
