It’s been a while since I’ve done any real kind of street photography so a day out with the Welshot bunch and Mark Scholey wasn’t to be missed. The day was very different for me (and a little terrifying) as one of the challenges was to interact and take a portrait of a complete stranger. The first time I tried it, it was a nightmare but it really was surprising how friendly and open the majority of people are into having their photos taken by a complete stranger.

At the end of the day we even had 20 minutes spare to walk around Afflecks, a place I’ve not been into for around 25 years. For more information about Afflecks see their site:
There's actually a funny anecdote to this shot. I was positioned and ready to take a photo of this cool looking guy but he was busy with his phone and writing stuff down so he was constantly looking down. I then decided to fake a pretty loud cough to get him to notice me and, lo and behold, it worked! ;)
