Portrait scouting downtown

ximg_7113

Downtown Kansas City is such an amazing place to scout for photo locations. Every corner, every alley, every building has its own personality. I wish I had a studio space down there. I’m afraid I wouldn’t get much work done, however, I would be too busy roaming the streets playing with light and texture. I am looking forward to taking some portraits in the area, maybe even some urban fashion.¬†

Visual treasures in First Fridays

First Fridays in the Crossroads are photographer’s heaven. The colors, the people, the textures, all mashed together with lovely evening light. Such a rich tapestry¬†of people, smells, and sounds as crowds pass back and forth. Street performers busk for tips, street artists beckon to customers, food trucks line the streets as crowds pass back and forth. There’s a visual treasure around every corner.
