#6 Frank Raymond

Is it still street portrait if someone invites you into their kitchen?

Meet Frank Raymond, a head chef at Mon Plaisir. We were wandering the streets of Covent Garden when I noticed Frank standing in a doorway watching the street waiting for the dinner service to start. I approached him for a portrait, he looked at me, nodded his head slowly and asked me 'Where do you want me? Here or in the kitchen?'. Now when it comes to restaurants and kitchens, you don't need to ask me twice so I happily followed him into his den for a shoot. Does it still count as street photography? I'll let you decide.
