A love of the street

I have fallen for the allure and romance of street photography. I get a rush of adrenaline every time I pick my camera up and get ready to go out. For me not letting your subjects know what you’re doing, while trying to get an artistic picture, is a challenge I relish. This is the process: finding interesting looking people on the street, getting your settings right on camera first time, moving very close to them (without them knowing) & framing them in your camera (without them knowing), then watching & waiting for a pose, look or stare. I’ve recently found that film is a good medium for the street style because it is so harsh, you make a mistake and you have lost your shot. If anything this adds to the appeal of the style and adrenaline that journeys with me each time I find a subject and dare to move as close as I can. Ultimately I will always see this type of photography as training for my weddings, not only am I trying to use this style all the time throughout my work, but my candid photography is honed when I’m on the street. I hope to continue to amass a large collection of these images and put them into a book, not quite yet though.

Nice to see someone showing work shot from their heart, not their wallet.
