Mackie #290

I met Mackie in Covent Garden as she walked through with a friend of hers (a guy) - and when I approached them the guy responded with a "oh, just a picture of her" which always makes me laugh as I often pick one person out of a couple or a crowd - as opposed to a few years ago when I would take photos of all of them - maybe I've become more direct in what I want.


Mackie is a set designer from Manhattan whose advice to people wanting to design or create art is to "do what you want, just do what you want". This advice really fits with my street portrait project and I was real pleased to include Mackie in my work. I would have loved a longer opportunity to really work with her but I got the feeling her friend was eager to head off so I thanked her for the time and handed her my card.


Mackie, thanks for getting int touch by email - I hope that you like this picture. If I bump into you again we will have a longer chance to chat and make some images I'm sure :)
