This first set of portraits were shot in Myanmar and India.

I think it was the first time that I was attracted to taking portraits and certainly the first where I actually asked people if they would let me take their portrait.

Funnily enough, and contrary to what I initially thought, most people say yes and I make a point of letting the person know that it’s alright if they don’t want to have their portrait taken with a smile.

I almost always show the photos on my camera before we part.
