Alan Sirulnikoff. Photographer. Taken on September 15, 2010.
Probably one of the most curious people I know, Alan was already an established photographer when I started messing around with a Pentax ME Super in April of 2004. He enthused about photography, had his own style and approach, and was often experimenting with the medium. He also delivered some of the funniest slide shows I've ever attended. Photographically, he's been an inspiration and so it seems appropriate that I post his portrait as the first of this series.
We were working in an outdoor studio when this was taken. I had a Nikon D90 tethered to a laptop and Alan was looking at the screen as I took pictures. He is, in a way, looking into the mirror.
Of all the photos I've done this remains my favourite.
