Hi! Do you remember blogs? Well, this used to be one. Now it just serves as an archive for my multiple Twitter accounts.
After I happened on a photography critics site while I was putting my bookmarks in order, I went browsing my galleries in search of something I’d be proud enough to submit there, and… I have to admit it: I make pretty damn nice portraits!
I must really get back to it. I haven’t made pictures since May. But walking around Paris looking for a place to photograph does get boring; and recruiting models, then meeting them, and photographing them, is… exhausting. Entire days spent on the web, being shot down because I can’t afford to pay models. (Are they dreaming or what?) I should try recruiting straight men and women for a change: it would certainly be simpler. But I don’t know how to do that, and even less where to find them.
I once thought of printing some kind of a business card, a little folded leaflet presenting a couple of my pictures, printed in color, which I could give out when I encountered an interesting face in the subway (there was that one young woman, with a resemblance to Pascale Bussières, who was sitting in front of me that time, and I was dying to ask her if she’d like her picture taken), but… can you imagine me going up to someone to offer a photo session? Heh. I can’t.
