Spent the afternoon watching @timothygerges shooting portraits. Tim shot friends, but the studio was open to walk-ins too. I had never met Tim before today, but had heard his name mentioned by Levon and Gareth. We chatted for a moment before my shots we made. I was stoked with the results. I became more and more in awe as Tim made portraits of strangers, getting them to trust him. I said to him at the beginning of the shoot “It must be quite difficult to shoot someone you don’t know.” This has always been my perception, and has often hindered me when it comes to photographing strangers. This false belief has now been obliterated. Thank you for the lesson, Tim.
