NILES TRAVELS THE WORLD AS AN INTERNATIONAL STREET PHOTOGRAPHER

Why street you ask? Because it's documentary photography - being the candid photographing of unfamiliar subjects usually in urban environments. All walks of society, regardless of economic class, share the public spaces and one documents the human condition via capturing those chance encounters. Your internal reality will reflect elements of yourself back to you in your external environment, so documenting those “random” incidents is of great reward since there are no coincidences.

Shooting street is Niles' main form of still work. Using the experiences of looking through a rangefinder camera as a way to look back at himself. As a life consultant + documentarian, it’s a life therapy technique he does, sometimes with others but mostly alone, to capture the light of anyone he finds interesting or compelling. A blurb regarding:

As a life documentarian + consultant, Niles works directly with others which is intrinsic. Extrinsically, he's been working on bringing an intimate street photography workshop / group photo walk into manifestation. Since even the most introverted amongst us enjoy spending time with others who have similar interests.

He guarantees tons of proactivity, humor, compassion, and personality in the host! As well as exotic locations visited, beautiful photos made, philosophical discussions had, memorable fellowship gained, and all around life-changing excellence achieved.

Wine is basically liquid sugar and it's not good for you. Despite the association's attempt to say it lowers cholesterol. Is low cholesterol really the best tell of heart disease either?

Good coffee is delicious. However, caffeine can, unfortunately, be a preventative against a strong light body. Let alone a rainbow body. Perhaps there's also a double rainbow body?

Take notice male-dominated patriarchal culture! Women have long ago known that the shoes make the outfit. A fact which most men seem to have not yet realized. For example, wearing any sort of exercise sneakers with jeans doesn't work gents. Hence wives often times help husbands to mature in their fashion.

One can, on occasion, find themselves in sci-fi-esque surroundings. Would this perhaps be a good time to contemplate on if the future will be an archaic revival of Luddites living off the land in sustainability with Gaia or robots sealed inside hyper tech-overloaded, antiseptic, space station like, compartmentalized spaces with no access to blue sky?
