Recently on Facebook I posted the beginning of my Portrait Bucket list - people I would absolutely love to have in front of my camera.
- Iggy Pop
- Henry Rollins
- David Tennant
- Dong-gun Jan
- Don Hany
- Charlie Webstar
And then there are the amazing people that I would have loved to photograph if I'd born in another time. Peter Lorre, Vincent Price, Edward G. Robinson...
Okay, the changes of me getting the opportunity to shoot any of these amazing people is currently slim... but hey, you have to put it out there to have any chance.
But what I think is more interesting is that my bucket list says about me as a photographer. Which I have pretty much always known - that I am more interested in shooting intelligent, quirky and compelling people. Sometimes these people are conventionally beautiful, but that's just a bonus not the defining criteria.
So I guess my portrait bucket list is more like a "ideal dinner guest" list than Supermodel central. Which completely okay. It's my list.
I would love to hear yours. :)
