Myself


Photo Information
I needed a portrait for my own webpage - although I take in average 6000-9000 pictures a year, I don't like to be photographed. So I used a mirror and did it myself
The mirroed picture was mirrored back with Photoshop.
BTW - I smile from time to time in real life but not on photos

I agree.

I think it is quite common that the photographers themselves not want to be photographed.

All because the lady loves Milk Tray

This is a reference to a TV advert from many years ago in which a dashing man in black, sort of a 007 secret agent type, would come to the aid of a lady in a swashbuckling manner with a box of confectionary in hand

don't know this advert but have to google it - as I said - needed it for my fotographer home page - so I must have done it in a bit stylish manner (in real life I am actually different - hehe)

Interesting self-portrait or half-portrait.
Only the end of the brand name is visible on your camera. May be is that a Contax?

A powerful and striking portrait. I had a picture taken of me last year as well, Axel!
Best wishes,

Andrew

Great self portrait. I think you should clone out the T in the Pentax logo so the only letters visible on the camera are the first two letters of your name.

Great self portrait, I like the sepia as the choice. I get the impression that you are at pains not to smile or laugh even. One more thing, I think you could positione the camera by turning it a bit towards the left (or is it right?) to face the direction you were looking at, but that's my opinion.

Yep - the baddy seems to be always to be a German
