Sometimes I come across strangers who tell me their life stories without even uttering a word. There are people amongst us who are full of character and personality. I never pass up an opportunity to talk to these people. This is a collection of stories and encounters with a few of these incredible human beings.
I am always amazed by all the wonderful people I meet with my camera. Last month, I was on a photo walk with my friend Joe and we came across a group of people hanging out near the Lansing City Market. I asked if I could take a portrait of each of them; I had ~6 exposures left on my camera. This photo was the last one on the roll and as right after I released the shutter I put the camera away. Aaron’s friends were surprised that he had let me photographed him. As always, I am honored that people let me photograph them, especially because being in front of a huge medium format camera body must be intimidating.
