News Stand

I decided I wanted to start shooting the people at the news stands in NYC. Unfortunately not one news stand vendor in the city wants to be photographed. After I first asked several and instantly being yelled at and rejected I started trying to sneak photos. Before I could focus they would start yelling or diving down so I could no longer see them. I only managed to get one semi-decent shot but not good enough to print. With the help of a very experienced photographer we came up with the idea of getting a film permit and setting up a tripod right outside of the news stand. That way I can photograph them hiding in their stand, yelling at me, and everything else that might happen.
