The following photographs were taken over a period of 24 hours. Half of them in Bali, and the other half on Gili Trawangan, an island just off Lombok, Indonesia. I have got over my hang up of asking strangers if I can take their photos. I’ve become quite bold in asking if they would mind posing for me. Indonesians are wonderfully friendly, giving souls and I’m very fortunate to have met so many natural models during my sojourn here. We always have a laugh when I’m taking pictures, and I am conscious that I must try to make it as relaxed as possible. The more confident you can be, the more confident your subject will be. And lastly, make it snappy! Two or three photos max. No one, however sweet natured and patient wants to hang around in front of a strangers lens for long!
