street photographer born in London
Buy a good pair of comfortable shoes, have a camera around your neck at all times, keep your elbows in, be patient, optimistic and don’t forget to smile.
On the question; What advice would you give to someone starting in street photography?
The lovely thing about street photography is
the best of is absolutely no way you can stage or even think of - it just like - it happened and isn't it weird and it is gone..
I think the crazies stuff is the stuff that is generally real and the stuff you can make up is less impressive.
On your knees please...Take a picture from floor level.
Advise for street photographers.
Don’t be reluctant to press the button, even if the picture is not quite there. Saying ‘yes’ and keeping yourself ‘awake’ will stop any overthinking.
I’m left handed, have a double jointed finger and almost lost my thumb when I was younger. I resent the fact that cameras are not made for lefties.
On the question:
"Tell us something people don’t know about you..."
Time... It's all about time. You need lots of it. If you can afford this most cherished commodity, then you will be well on your way. Apart from that, good shoes, a degree of empathy, optimism and lots of spare batteries.
What advice would you give young photographers?
A positive mental attitude is the key to great photographs. If you go out expecting to see interesting pictures, you tend to be more positive, and then luckier.
