Behind the Camera: Richard P.

My photography knowledge is a little stunted.  I have a good amount of experience shooting myself–I get out my handy tripod, set the timer on my camera, and try to make myself look decent before I hear that shutter snapping–but I rarely stay put behind the camera and take pictures of other people.  I needed to try something new, so I asked my sartorially blessed friend, Richard, to humor me and let me do an outfit shoot with him.  

It was a little weird for me at first, but I’m quite happy with how these turned out.  I’m so used to standing there, letting the camera go off for six frames, reviewing the photos, getting pissed off that my eyes were shut in every one of them, and then starting over.  This, on the other hand, was much easier.  Richard’s a natural, so I didn’t really have to give him any direction–it was just click, click, click and I got what I needed.

As for the clothes, well, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.  Richard, in addition to being an excellent stylist, has also kindly linked each item–links are below each set.  If you have questions, please feel free to ask, and I will get an answer to you!

I should also mention that the whole process was overseen by a friendly stray cat, whom Richard named Jonesy.  Jonesy did a wonderful job posing and I might have to enlist her (him?) for future shoots…if I can find her again.

  1. I’m really liking the composition of these shots and how you frame Richard in them. Also, how does he keep his white sneakers looking so pristine?!


    1. Thank you! I loved getting to move around a bit more and take pictures I ordinarily can’t when it’s just me. As for his shoes, I think he must be a wizard or something.


  2. Indeed, Richard IS a natural, I’m looking forward to see more of his OOTD! 😉
    You did a great job as a photographer too! Congratulations to this great collaboration of you two!
