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 can be 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. 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. Here's a blurb regarding:

Niles occasionally mentors 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.

Apparently the average American home has in excess of 250,000 individual items in it. Each which takes a fraction of your time. Hence, simplicity of lifestyle and presentation is key. Down with bric-a-brac and up with zen cleanliness! Even though you we’re once fascists, thanks Japanese and Germans for now leading the way on the aforementioned.

Most juice is loaded with sugar and is thus, deceptively un-healthy. However, if fresh and unsweetened, can be a miracle boost to your day! Thus blending plants into a goo mush and guzzling them down your pie hole is not a bad thing. Yet, it’s even more healthy to eat those plants un-blended because blending destroys many of their fibers. But, would you have even eaten them unless they were blended in the first place? Where was I?

“Scopophobia” is the fear of being looked at, seen or stared at. The origin of the word Scopo is Greek (meaning see, view, sight, look at or examine) and phobia is Greek (meaning fear).

For we all do have the ability to since when someone is looking at us. Even when we are not looking at them.
