About this Project

Hi there, my name is David Weir. By day I'm usually designing pretty pixels for Ludomade here in Los Angeles, but in my spare time I enjoy taking photographs.

This project is an attempt to step out of my comfort zone and into a new level of portrait photography: by taking 100 portraits of people I have never met.

I am in no way a professional photographer, but I hope that this project will help develop my photojournalistic skills further and provide some stories into to the life's of these strangers.

Where can I follow the project?

Feel free to comment, like and share these images so everyone can have there say about how I am going and what they think about the strangers I've met.

Stranger #06 – Charles

Introducing Charles – my sixth stranger. Charles is a man I have now seen many times since this first encoutner and someone who I will always remember when I think back at my time in Los Angeles.

Charles works for a charity organisation which helps support the homeless people of Los Angeles. On weekends he can be seen in the streets of Santa Monica, donating his time to help those in need. I became known as ‘Mr Australia’ and “Mr Photographer” thanks to Charles who always changed it up anytime we crossed paths. He’s a funny guy.

Charles has a big smile but he admitted he wasn’t someone who was normally too keen to have his photo taken, and after explaining that casual nature of the shots I had in mind he was happy to let me take some shots this time around. I am glad he did.

The good thing about having started this project in another country other than my own, is not only is it a way to meet such a variety of people that I would never get to meet back in Australia, but I also am able to photograph certain people I meet during my stay that I can keep as a memory of my time here. Charles is a “Big Hearted American” and it was a pleasure to meet him. I hope he enjoys this photo.
