Edgy Beauty and Tattoos 0611
There are a lot of photographers who primarily shoot models trained to pose on sterile backgrounds with studio lighting. The girls may look perfect, but the photos are boring. My approach is to shoot real people in their surroundings, either quickly posed or candid on the street. These photographs were made on Gay Pride Day 2012 in Houston, Texas. Due to the extreme heat and humidity found in Houston at the end of June, normal fashion for outdoor events is on the skimpy side.
