“Do you have any Tobacco?” asked the Shepherd. Surely enough I did, so I gave him a palmful. “Now, take my photo” he instructed me in broken Russian. Who was I to refuse? and so it came to pass that I shot my first Shepherd portrait. Joseph was a different matter, he was running for Tbilisi City Council elections, et voila my first political portrait. The Orthodox Priest was baptising my friends daughter; First Priest Portrait. Finally Nathan is a successful author who needed some new images for the back of his books, you guessed it: first author portrait.
