Not a big fan at all of portraiture, don't know anything about him, what he uses, how he gets his shots or where he does them, but they're just too good not to share.

Just like with music, I LOVE it when something comes along, completely out of place in what I usually listen to, and makes me look at/listen to things I otherwise normally never would have.

horses for courses. I still prefer the traditional B&W portraiture work, such as those done by Cartier-Bresson,  because I dislike those high-pass filter effects from Photoshop.

I've seen his stuff reblogged on Tumblr.

I think they are hyper real shots.

He must hire the homeless for studio shoots. Or sets up a backdrop on local.

Does nice work.

Brilliant work. Love the dodging and burning, too. Thanks for sharing!

Interesting, but I prefer Mike Shaw's work:

Mike.

More compelling than Jeffries' due to the lighter hand with the processing.
