PDX hood life. Models: Brian, Greg & Steven
In Portland, I collaborated with local Instagrammer Steven Bustrin on a Vigilante web series. During October, Steven posted an ongoing saga of the tales of a disengaged young man in the big city, accompanied by a photograph, several of which were by me. Fun times re-imagining Portland as a city full of hoodlums.

From the streets
There are around 4,000 people sleeping rough on the streets in Portland. The homeless situation in the USA is always a culture shock for me. I even saw 2x police officers issuing a ticket to a man sleeping in a car park, what an outrage! I’m not sure what the solution is, but what I learned is the best thing I could do was to overcome my fear and treat everyone with kindness and respect.
