Photography project for 2018 : 365 portraits

My photography project for 2018 is this : Shoot at least one portrait every day of the year.

Some constraints and rules for the project:

  1. Equipment to be used : The Leica Monochrom (2012 edition), with the Leica Noctilux 50mm f/0.95
  2. The same person/persons can be pictured more than once
  3. All portraitees must agree to be in the project, so no candid portraits without at least asking afterwards
  4. I'm in charge : people can't choose clothes, pose, location, expression, or final editing of the photos
  5. I do not have to post every day, but at least once a week


Help me out!

If you want to help me out by being a part of this project, let me know. You can get in touch on my Facebook page, or some other way : Here are my contact details. I live near Oslo in Norway, so most of the portraits will be shot in this area. But I do travel around, so don't be afraid to ask if you are somewhere completely different.

Here you can have a look at some of portraits I have shot earlier

Now, on to the result, that will be in progress throughout 2018. Wish me luck!

Pro tip : place people in a doorway facing an overcast or blue sky to get soft light. Avoid direct sunlight.
