Brian Cassey is a Cairns based photographer, a Head On Portrait Prize Finalist and great friend of Head On Photo Festival! Today, he shares the best lesson he learned in photography:

“Always … treat those that you find in front of your lens in any situation with the greatest dignity and respect … and where appropriate any of  … sympathy, humour, honesty, empathy and integrity.” Excellent advice for all those photographers working with people, especially those in vulnerable and dangerous situations.
