Let me start by saying that it’s so refreshing to jump back into the project! I’ve forgotten how cool it is to make an instant connection with a stranger and to capture their beautiful qualities for a portrait.
I met Marcus as I was browsing around the Comic Book Store. I immediately took notice of his fantastic beard and knew I had to ask him to be apart of the project.
When he accepted the invitation, I asked if he could meet me outside of the shop when he was ready. This gave me just enough time to change my lens and to ensure I had the right camera settings.
When I begin taking shots, I notice right away how easygoing Marcus was. He said that he’s a commercial driver for a fruit and veggie company. He enjoys the job because it compliments his vegan lifestyle. Marcus is also a bit of an adrenaline junky who enjoys extreme sports.
Thank you for joining the project Marcus! It was a pleasure to meet you.
