All the portraits you find on my site are the result of random encounters and rarely do those chance meetings last for more than a few minutes.
So, no studio lighting, no reflectors, just me, my camera and my subject and of course, the street. The young lady opposite, is Kye Adams and she hails from Chicago.
Our meeting came about when from my seat on a bus, I spotted a large gathering of people on the pavement surrounded by an equally large number of photographers. Naturally, I got off the bus to find out what was going on. The location, just opposite St Clement's Danes Church on The Strand in Central London. I found out very quickly that the crowd was part of London Fashion Week. Most of my fellow photographers were shooting the models who were posing in their exotic costumes. To be honest, that doesn't do much for me so I asked Kye, a delegate to LFW if I might take her photo. Very graciously, she asked her companion to hold her bag and the image opposite is the result.
