This is very exciting - my plan is to meet 100 people I don't know and photograph them.
This project has a context which is much bigger than just taking a photograph. My goal is to develop my social skills on a much bigger scale that ever before. Each photograph will be numbered and each person will give their consent to their image being used on this website. Most importantly, before each photograph is taken, my plan is to engage in a conversation with each person which hopefully will lead to me asking "may I take your photograph". Each person will get a copy of their personal photograph by way of thanks from Mike Vincent Photography.
My philosophy of life is that every stranger I meet represents the wonderful possibility of friendship and that is the goal that inspires me with this project. It also represents to me the possibility of creating some wonderful headshots of people whilst developing my all round photographic skills.
Believe it or not, I got my very first number one today. I want to thank Nikos for allowing me to take his portrait and sharing it on this site to kick of this year long project.
Here we go: Hover your mouse over each image to learn a little about each person.
