At some point we all hit a wall, we struggle to find inspiration when we’re out with our cameras. One thing I do to combat a lack of motivation, or a dull day on the street is to pick a colour and shoot anything that has that colour. Actually, during the dog days of winter, when everyone wears their black or grey winter coats, I’ll look for any bright colour I can.
I spotted the girl in the orange jacket from a mile away and prayed she wouldn’t move until I got close to her.
I turned down a quiet side street in Kensington Market and found this bright yellow wall. If there was anywhere I’d want to use as a backdrop for some good street portraits, it’s this wall. Love the colour and texture of the bricks.
On what I hope was our final snow day of the season, I passed by these amazing red and green crates. It was so grey and damp out, and these crates saved my day.
The amazing blue of this old payphone stopped me dead in my tracks recently, and I simply had to shoot it. This is also the same time that Kobi tapped me on the shoulder and asked me to take his portrait.
