First portrait of Mission 18: My journey around the Forth coast got off to a fine start on Tuesday 11th June with this portrait of Michael Bruce, @rnli_anstruther Coxswain.

I usually have an idea or two up my sleeve, but rather than “impose” it, I like to ask the person I’m about to photograph whether or not they have any preconceptions about how their portrait might look. It’s a collaboration, you see. A dialogue. I’m not “taking” photographs. We’re making them together.

In the case of Michael’s portrait, though, it was very satisfying that we both had the same idea — the station’s beautiful old Mersey class ‘Kingdom of Fife’ sitting in the background, peaceful but always ready.
See the full set from Anstruther in the web galleries and on the brand new ‘South East Scotland’ print page.

It's a great portrait Jack, with just the right amount of looking off camera which can be tricky to acomplish. It needs to come across natural and authentic, as you have achieved here 😀
