Favorite albums on EyeEm: portrait, streetphotography, bw_collection, monochrome, blackandwhite, eyeem best shots, streetphoto_bw, Landscape

A pro tip for taking nice photos: Don’t be shy, try to be the closest you can to the subject and shoot. I like to observe people, their eyes, their movements, sometimes there’s a great capture waiting for you. Let people be natural

How do you find your models:by now mostly friends or family. People who attract me in the street, beautiful or ugly, it doesn’t matter. I love their souls, not their faces.
