Project research and arrangement: life of a priest CONTACTS

For this project idea I want to document the lives of priests and what made them become religious personals. To create this project I would interview four or five priests, of different religions, genders and titles. For these priests, I would take portrait shots of them using a low f-value to have them in complete focus. I would then also include images of them going about their daily activities, using a variety of landscape shots with a higher f-value and as most of my shots will be taken inside, I will set my ISO level between 400 and 800, to ensure that my photograph is bright enough to see the subject but not too bright that it doesn’t appear natural. Alongside these five priests, I will also have a 400(ish) word first person feature about why they became priests and also about their daily lifestyle as a religious personnel.

Below I have listed everyone I have contacted and the ones who I have arranged to meet, with a rough list of interview questions to ask them.
