I’ve been asked many times how I decide who to ask for a photo or how I go about looking for a photo to take. The thing is, I don’t really have a technique or process to it. It’s something one has to see for themselves, mainly because I’m not giving talk my secrets in approaching people in Los Angeles about a photo.
I’ve had a few people accompany me during a walk to observe how I get the shots and approach the diverse people I come across. I’d like to think it was a learning experience for them just as it was for me. If you’d ever like to take a walk with me, feel free to contact me at Sartorial.firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up a day and time to shoot together.
I recently had a good friend of mine come with me on a walk throughout dtla so he can see how I work when I’m out. First thing I told him to take off his earbuds and sunglasses. Always make eye contact with the individual with a smile and bright eyes. But that’s all I’m giving y’all for now. These photos are some I took on my walk with him. I hope you all enjoy.
