Strangers on the streets of London
One off impromptu portraits of complete strangers I come across meandering the streets of London.

Photography is the first thing I think of when I wake up, and the last when I got to sleep, inbetween? I DREAM about it. I'm currently travelling and usually Landscapes is my deal, but living in London has pushed me outside my comfort zone into portraiture. I don't know the people in these photo's. They are strangers. Whilst not a continual story line, every subject has their OWN story. Look to their eyes & search, here they have opened up to a stranger with a camera that has chosen them from the masses. I have started a series of this, I'm growing as an artist & a photographer. I'm realising the potential that is out there outside of comfort. That you must press forward no matter what!
The genesis of this lies in my lust for Life.. I also am a BASE jumper. There is SO much planning and training behind each jump - not a death wish, a LIFE wish! I push myself with each jump, I grow with each jump, I learn so much about myself and the environment I am in.. I have been transferring this to my photography, honestly, it's exciting. I have a new lease on my vision. I want to GROW, and this opportunity will encourage that. I am used to no sleep, long days, early starts, with my BASE jumping. This also requires that I be flexible and adaptable to any situation. I love immersing myself in new cultural experiences! I believe variety is the spice of life, so I love the idea of finding new and fresh challenges. I already have loose plans to travel through Africa volunteering for wildforlife.org. A South African friend I met through Jumping founded that organisation. I feel this will be a stepping stone & head start at the same time, to a new solid career, a new life in the direction I am constant;y finding myself. I AM A SPONGE FOR YOUR KNOWLEDGE, WISDOM & TEACHINGS JASON!!
