I’m a big supporter of small businesses.
I live in a neighbourhood that’s full of family-owned coffee shops, boutiques, and restaurants. I like the idea of going to my favourite shop, building a relationship with the owners, and returning and them knowing who you are.
With a series in mind, I want to capture those people who dedicate their life to giving back to our neighbourhood. I began with Dan at Eyesore Cinema. The portraits were done with lights but I think I might try something different. I’ll post the new versions but for now, I will post this shot, taken by accident of Dan and my friend Sam.
