Some of my portraits...

Alongside shooting skateboarding, I do like shooting portraits too...

Re: Some of my portraits...

I really like the group shot in the cafe, with the mixed expressions and reactions to the camera. It's very spontanious in nature but the characters and elements are all so well arranged.

All great capture's, you probably have more success capturing teenagers, than I do with mine.
Love the last shot, the catchlight in the eyes is very natural and looks like a window

Re: Some of my portraits...

Thanks for the comments guys, glad you like them. I think I am most proud of the last shot, the wonderful Olympus 45mm 1.8 really helps.

There is only one teenager in the whole lot but I am sure the rest would take it as a complement!

Fab shots, I like no 2, looks like he is about to embark on a particularly challenging free running adventure (or whatever it's called, that thing where people run around and jump over rooftops etc.)

Re: Some of my portraits...

Another good set but I would prefer them with more space around them.
