But I thought that it may be a little too graphic. Were people suspicious of you or did they think you were a creep with a camera? Surprisingly, over the course of the year, there was only a small handful of people who were outwardly suspicious of what I was doing. Even though I have a degree in psychology, I learned quite a lot about human interaction by talking to strangers every single day on the street.
Basically, each person thinks that someone else will agree but in the end, no one will even speak to me. We chatted but, unfortunately, everyone turned me down. Then when I went to another shelter and gave the entire group my prepared speech, not one person would even talk to me. If utilized correctly, it allows you access to incredible experiences and situations. It still boggles my mind that I could walk up to strangers on the street and those people were kind enough not only to agree to my portrait request but also, on occasion, to agree to my sometimes crazy requests.
For example, I asked Katie, whom I had just met, to lie in a flower bed in a sidewalk planter on Osbourne Street in Winnipeg. She is multi-talented and has several vastly different jobs. Originally from South Africa, Katie has been living in Winnipeg with her husband for many years.
There, almost everyone I asked agreed to be in the project, compared to Winnipeg where I often had to ask 5 to 15 people before someone agreed. In France, it was refreshing to have people so open to art. Although, a huge challenge for me in France was trying to communicate with my poor French.
Thankfully, my French girlfriend helped me out a lot. Other than photographing people you just met on the street, you also asked people to contact you ahead of time.
How many people contacted you asking to be photographed? Did you turn down anyone who volunteered? And when they did, they almost never followed my procedures clearly outlined on my website. I spent quite a bit of time going back and forth with some people.
Nearing the end of the year, I received a lot of media attention for my portrait project. So then, everyone wanted to be a part of it. The majority of the portraits in late November and December were set up in advance with strangers who contacted me and were serious about making it happen.
I really wish those people had contacted me earlier in the year rather than at the very end. Like most of my friends from my university days, she is living and studying in Toronto. She studied interior design at the University of Manitoba and last year made the big move to Toronto to follow a dream of studying fashion in the Fashion Management program at George Brown College.
Anah has been following my project and contacted me to be a part of it. I posted the EXIF data for every single portrait and I clearly shot at the 70mm focal length the most. I also tended to gravitate to a small-medium sized softbox a lot as well. Very few portraits, maybe around a dozen, were shot only with available light.

I was rarely afforded the luxury of finding people during ideal times of the day to utilize nice ambient light, remember, I was usually working with strangers on the street. I prefer creating the look and mood of my portraits with strobes and I got quite fast at setting up multiple flashes on location.
I carried three light stands, two umbrellas, and a softbox in a guitar bag at all times. We talked about music and even a little about philosophy while he took a smoke break from playing his guitar and singing. I photographed everyone from celebrities and scientists e. Toronto Blue Jays Jose Bautista to national political party leaders e. The portraits were mostly made here in Winnipeg but I also made some across the globe while traveling on assignments for work.
I also spent one week in Montreal on vacation and shot portraits there as well.
No matter where I went, I met extremely interesting people with interesting stories to tell. Canada is so multicultural and I was awarded opportunities to speak with people from all over the world and hear their stories. I really learned a lot about people, especially not to judge a book by its cover. I ran up a hill to where he was and asked him in French if he spoke English.
He said he spoke only a little so I explained myself in both French and English. He told me to come back to this same spot in an hour. We went back to the spot where we originally met Michel Chinardet but he was not there. On our way, we saw Michel reading a newspaper at an outdoor cafe.
After a sincere apology for missing him earlier, he agreed for a portrait.
Michel is retired but worked in the aeronautics industry. While making his portrait, several tourists photographed me photographing Michel. I guess with my big camera and lighting equipment, people thought it must be an important shoot.
I asked him about his style of dress. Although I may not have completely understood his explanation or perhaps it was lost in translation, I believe he said that his style is a result of trying to be different or more special than the ordinary French way of dressing.
If I do go forward with another project, it will definitely not be daily.

He can usually be found along the side of the road at all big European cycling races as well as other large sporting events. I was especially happy to see Didi at Le Tour de France this year, as he missed the race due to medical issues. That was first time he has missed Le Tour since I stuck my head out of the car window and got a few grab shots.
Though it was incredibly awkward to park the car just off the race course on such a steep incline, I had to get out and talk to him. Without asking, he automatically did his signature look and his signature jump. It was really tough to just pick one image to post for my portrait-a-day project. He is such an epic character. The caravan, the fans, the media and everyone else love this guy.
