    Also my entry in the latest competition.

    The North Sea is never warm, but that looks a little too dark and cold to me

    Had the privilege of photographing a friend's wedding this afternoon - a very small gathering of only 10 people or so, in a village pub close to our home:

    Isn’t this just a different angle on your “dream house”. Nice walk!

    It is indeed - just using different glass for the photo. I'm never happier than when spending time in such places, and somewhere like this would make a perfect home for me.

    The last three images show the power of black and white. I just love them.

    Quite; after > decade of watching, and sometimes trying for myself, I find Pete's facility yet wholly-distinct way with the discipline of the square monochrome portraits mesmerising. They are all wonderful.

    @mentalp - Thanks for contributing your portraits, all of them - for me it's always a 'sit up and watch' moment to see you post, to contemplate what and how it works as an image, especially the apparent insight into something about the subject (the bit that gets me everytime) - and always enjoyed.

    Thank you guys - it's appreciated. Portraits have always been my thing since college days. I picked up a pile of old contact sheets last night and started looking at frames I'd not really done anything with before. Off sick today so started digging through the neg files and scanning some of them. The two above were both taken at Edinburgh Film Festival - I worked at the Filmhouse at the time so had a bit of access. Weren't commissioned, I just asked if I could do a portrait Not something I found easy ( I did chicken out of asking Tilda Swinson one year) I do remember after shooting Allison Anders she said I was the shyest photographer she had ever met.
    My usual practice used to be to shoot 3 rolls of film (36 frames) for a portrait but as film has become more expensive I'm being more frugal. The recent portraits I did in Hastings were all one roll per person and I still managed to have several options I could use.
    I'll stick one more up, from 1987 this time
