I watched an episode on Discovery Channel some time back and it was about a photographer out to photograph tribal folk and culture in Ethiopia as the tribe was close to being wiped out, with modernisation threatening its existence. While my people images stand nowhere around his, his portfolio really makes me want to photograph life of people like that. It takes a lot of effort to make people comfortable for shots like this. There are so many shots where it seems like the photographer is being ignored, but I want photos to tell the tale better. In a more natural and influential way.
Link to this inspiring photographer's portfolio: Joey L Photography, website
(joeyl.com, if you want to remember) and some viewers may find the contents of the portfolio offensive, it contains images of tribal folk, different from what we see every day.
Some of my photos after watching his shows are below. You can order DVDs of the show I guess, for around $30 from somewhere on the site. It is a really inspiring one for travel photographers. :)
Any suggestions and views on my photos? I am not good at all compared to professionals, but then I have no additional lighting source except a high power on-camera flash unit. Suggestions welcome from everyone!
