“Seeing is not enough; you have to feel what you photograph” – Andre Kertesz
“Music is a necessity. After food, air, water and warmth, music is the next necessity of life.” – Keith Richards
Wow! This is what I want to be able to achieve! I mean when I do street photographing…
:). Thank you Helen for your awesome comment, it’s much appreciated.
Thank you so much :). Have a great day.
This is a fantastic portrait, Mark. Love the textures, contrasts and emotion.
Thank you so much Jane. This guy had all the moves of a rock star.
Wow Mark, we don’t hear from you often but when you DO show up it’s always something special. The textures in your shot are wonderful, the face is priceless!
I can’t thank you enough Tina for your supportive comments. It really makes posting a pleasure and inspires me to continue. I just wish a hectic work life did not stand in the way. Speak soon.
Absolutely! He’s a rock star, even if in essence only…
Hi Karen, this guy loved the spotlight a true rock star! Thank you so much for the stop in and the kind words. Happy Canada Day!
Wow! Where did you meet him?! This is just terrific Mark.. so happy for you 🙂
Hi Paula, this is not actually Keith Richards but someone who certainly looks like him thus my title “Channeling Keith”. Actually to me he looks a little like Iggy Pop too but nonetheless he certainly thought he was a star. As always, it’s very nice to have you come by and comment 🙂
He (you) has certainly fooled me :D. I am not in the least bit embarrassed cause the resemblance is uncanny :D. Mark, you know I am more than happy to come and enjoy your posts 🙂
The resemblance is very uncanny and if I did not know any better I would have thought it was Keith before my very eyes. Speak soon
🙂 Take good care, Mark 🙂
that is a portrait with an attitude 🙂
Awesome shot Mark!
Hi Uday, really happy you like this one. This guy was a real lively character that’s for sure. Have a good day.
I was here y’day too, on your blog, scrolling up n’ down, adoring moments you so rarely share! Hm..
And I was wondering that I need to literally follow you….lol
I know it’s a big problem for me, I need to post and share much more often. I know it’s an excuse and a lame one but my life is just so hectic I don’t focus enough on my work and as you know I’m sooooo very picky with my work it stops me from posting more. I’m so glad you are around when I do post my friend. Have a good night.
You’re competing with yourself and that’s fine. It took me a while to understand. I’m relatively new to photography, pardon me but the very few when they pop in my reader is a moment of celebration each time!!
🙂 🙂 🙂
great portrait of a very talented and strange man!!
Thank you very much although this is not the real Keith just someone with a very close similarity. I do have to say this guy had a lot of talent in his own right.
He’s definitely a star, superb portrait Mark!
He certainly had a great persona. Thanks for the kind words, I’m glad you like this portrait. Have a great day.
Very nice photographs! 🙂 love them.
Hi Katarina, thank you so much for having a look around and for deciding to follow. I really appreciate your very kind words 🙂 Have a great day
Wow ! Your portraits are all amazing. I’m often disappointed when I see professional phtotographies of people but yours are soulful and beautiful with an exceptional work on details, light and framing. A truly excellent eye !!!
I can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful comment it means a lot. Wonderful bloggers such as yourself make it a pleasure to post. I try to put heart and soul into my work so I’m happy that comes across. Have a great day.
Amazing! Such great portraits you make 🙂
Thank you:) I’m always trying to find/capture us as we truly exist.
For that I find your work even more special 🙂
Is your last name Hungarian?
Yes it is, my parents were born in Hungary but I’m 1st generation Canadian.
So very cool!
The lookalike is amazing. And so is you photo of him. You always seem to be able to capture the essence of their character – and some decisive moment when it’s been expressed.
Hi Otto. What a compliment coming from you :). I really try to capture that moment or as you say ‘decisive’ moment so I’m glad that comes across.
