The single most frequent complaint I have, as a photographer, is the complaint, that as I am shooting a person, then them saying they’re ugly. And I think my job as a photographer is to show that person, and others, that they’re beautiful even when they think they aren’t at their best. Here is a photo I took the other day at the pool of my friend Christine. She hits me after every shot I take of her, or whines and pouts to someone about it. I think this image of her was worth all of that.
