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?
Panasonic G3/GX8 and some nice Panny lenses.

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.
