Last week, on Thursday night to be precise, I was checking my twitter feed and I see a tweet by Evegeny Tchebotarev, one of 500px's founders stating that he just landed in Paris. I tweeted back and asked him if he wanted to meet for lunch. "He'll never answer", I thought, "an entrepreneur like him has better things to do".

I was wrong. Evgeny and I met near Les Halles for a late morning coffee and we had a long chat about 500px, photography, entrepreneurship and Russia. I was amazed at how humble and bright he is.

After the coffee, we walked to the Louvres where I left him to go back to work, but not before shooting this shot of him with my Spotmatic F (and an Ilford Pan F film).

Thanks for taking the time, Evgeny!
