I did some street portraits the other week, random people in Liverpool. I really enjoyed it.

What is your usual approach with street portraits? Do you have a line that works really well? I asked a guy last week and he refused :/ Just wondered if you may be had any tips?
Shame he isn’t looking into the camera
Her eyes are amazing :) Lovely picture
Basically I just go up to people and ask them if I can take their photo. You’ve got to be nice about it, and have fun with them to make them relaxed. I explain its either for a book I’m working on or this website. Generally just be nice to them. The people I photograph have usually caught my eye for some reason so I tell them why. If some random person looks cool, I say so. If a girl looks stunning, I say so. If a couple look like a cute couple I say so.
I thought you reckoned you were shy! Doesn’t sound like it to me. Your street portraits are great – the one of the Irish girl in the next photo is lovely.
