I was commissioned by L’Officiel Turkey to shoot women’s street fashion so I headed up to Lincoln Center to capture some shots of super stylish women at the shows. While up there I ran in to Bill Cunningham. For those who don’t know about Bill, he has been shooting fashion for the NY Times for a billion years and had a documentary come out about him (watch it here). Like every other photographer on earth, I ended up watching Bill shoot for a few minutes. I ran in to him at the Rodarte show last season and… well… I just end up staring for some weird reason. This season we kept ending up standing in the same spots next to each other and I started to understand what he saw. 
Eventually I saw the woman on the right in this photo. Earlier I saw the gentlemen in punk gear but somehow they started to gravitate to each other. I told Bill, “Hey! You’re missing the alien encounter!” (The woman in the right with the horns had a bucket that said she was an alien). He’s deaf like me so I had to yell it in to his ear hole until he heard and saw what I said. He went running and I caught up with them. We both shot them for a few minutes then I walked on. 
A few minutes later I saw him yell to me “Hey! Hey!” So I walked over. “Thank you! That was really nice of you to tell me about that shot!” 
"We’re all in this together"
"No, Really! That was nice of you."
"Totally - like I said, we’re all in this together!"
"No - REALLY! Thank you! That was very sweet of you! Thank you!" He said it with this sincerity and I suddenly realized how he must get bothered by photographers asking him for advice, but no one ever stops to say "Hey, let’s go shoot together. Here is a good shot we can enjoy."
I don’t know, it felt good to connect and learn like that. I learned more by sharing than watching.

Quirky GIF Portraits Indulge a Photographer’s Need for Spontaneity

The committee-driven and regulated world of advertising photography can be a constraining force on the creative mind. After moving to New York and picking up ad work, Romain Laurent was itching for a more spontaneous outlet. He started One Loop Portrait a Week as a way to satisfy his urge to improvise and get a break from the second-guessing that creeps into even personal projects as they get “serious.”
