Portrait: The Photographer

20190319_125753.jpg

Barry is a top guy  with a droll sense of humour .In his professional life he was a photographer.

I felt almost embarrassed  asking if I could take a shot of him,and with a phone camera at that. I  mean,he probably took thousands of portraits of individuals and groups in a myriad of poses and settings and lord knows whatever else, mostly in the old school analog way – actual film,actual developing.

He was pretty phlegmatic  about the results of this shot . Probably not used to being on the other side of things…he looks skeptical!

I think my attempt passed muster ,but I  realised he knew so much more than I ever will about the art of photography,so it is a sort of privilege to capture a maven of the craft through my lens.
