Portrait of a Fireman

Firefighters make great subjects. Like most people, they carry their stories in their eyes and mouths, but mainly in their eyes, where different shades of intensity gleam. In the coming weeks, I’ll be spending time at a firehouse and am eager to see (and share) what I capture, hopefully a mix of candid headshots, environmental portraits, and maybe even documentary work on a call…
