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.

As I sit here drinking my coffee infused Scotch, I contemplate the FDA’s strong-arm tactics used to intimidate and terrorize Americans into remaining weak and submissive so they tow their police state line on healthcare, which is really sick care, and medicine, which is really corporate for-profit medicine.

A 50mm Summilux (Leica's pretentious naming convention for an f1.4 lens) will set you back at least $4000. However, if has no planned obsolescence and if you take great care of it, it can render stunningly beautiful shots for the rest of a human’s lifetime...

A death-metal strong-bearded alien creature has been spotted!

It bestowed a face-melting pink laser bast from its eyes which transmitted a torrent of data stream from the astral upon me during the snapping of this pic. Future mega channeled text from the download will be forthcoming.

Our demons are largely due to confused ideas and ignorance of our true interest. Clear thinking and moral insight are therefore of incalculable value.
