Greetings Everyone,
This is my second submission to this blog. First one was featured last year under number 97. This time, I decided to share my analog setup. I shoot mostly digital, but sometimes I really enjoy shooting film. It produces better results with more depth and character. Also, It’s much more unforgiving and challenging to shoot with, especially when it comes to the medium format. Shooting with the Hasselblad is just a completely different experience. You should all try it at least once in your life! You are much more critical of your shots, since there are only 12 shots on the roll and it’s fairly expensive to develop. This year, I was able to receive back my 1955 Смена 1 (Smena 1). I mostly shoot with it because of nostalgia and as a good practice, since it’s even more challenging to shot with. My dad got it from his uncle when he was a kid and he gave to me when I was about six or eight. He used set up the darkroom at home and we used to spend hours developing photos. These days, I shoot a lot of stuff, but my favorite place to shoot is the street with all the people and all the drama.

Hi, my name is Frank. I’m from Frankfurt, Germany. Back in 2013 my wife convinced me to buy my first camera, because I was asking her too many questions about photography. We’ve been travelling a lot and we both found street photography very interesting. After taking part in a workshop by Thomas Leuthard, I decided to organize photowalks in Frankfurt, which we still do regularly today. I think street photography is a great way of documenting human life wherever you are. I don’t like usual photography bags, because I find them clumsy. I use FREITAG stuff from switzerland. I add soft inlays to protect my gear. I own my FREITAG bag for 6 years now, it’s more than just a bag, it’s a true friend, following me around the world.

Hello Street Hunters !

My name is Michelle and I live in Melbourne, Australia. I love to walk the streets of my home city and when travelling, looking for interesting people or stories to photograph. I travel often and when I go out shooting in a new city I try hard to capture its essence, the things that make it unique.

I mostly use an Olympus OM-D E-M5 Mk II and swap between the two lenses I carry, depending on what I’m shooting. The Olympus is my first serious camera and I love that it’s so light and easy to use. I prefer to use a wrist strap so that I can carry it discretely and securely as I move about crowded streets. I travel light and never carry a tripod unless I know I going to need it. My camera bag is small but has lots of pockets so can accommodate everything I need to take with me.

Hello Street Hunters !

My name is Tristan Cocrelle. I’m a street photographer based in Brest, France. I’ve been shooting in the streets for years now, in France and abroad. Like a shooting star, I wander and look for the unseen. (Street) photography is not about what you see but much more about what you feel. And I definitely feel raw and graphic. I look at the world in color or black and white, it doesn’t really matter as long as it appears authentic to me.

I gave up my reflex few years ago. I stick with my 2 every day carry cameras. Light and versatile. My Sigma DP2 looks like a toy. My Fuji X100T like a vintage camera. In both case, I don’t look intrusive or agressive but they are weapons of mass seduction. The closer, the better.

Hello!

I’m Romain, I live in Paris. I’m interested in every kind of cameras : digital, analog, instant. Though it might not be the greatest strategy, I like to mix a bit of everything in my bag. I’ve got many rangefinders from the late sixties/early seventies, I love their design and wish it was easier to get in focus with them. I really like to work with vintage cameras. People tend to stop by, ask questions, and overall feel more comfortable with those. Young people will want to know more about them, see how they work. Older ones will recognize them and start talking about the good old days “I had one of those back in the days… “. It can lead to interesting situations and it’s a cool way to start a conversation.

Hello!

Currently based in Budapest, Hungary, but for the most part I’m travelling for work, mainly in Eastern Europe. Street photography is where I escape when I need a break or just want to go out for a walk. I was actually  travelling for 4 years already when I picked up the camera and started to discover street photography. This is my “everyday” setup. I use this Fuji only for my street stuff, it is a fantastic camera with a 35mm equivalent fast f/2 lens. I typically use zone focusing (you can look it up here on the StreetHunters) as the X100S is pretty slow for AF. The bag is the smaller Camslinger from CosySpeed, I found it on the StreetHunters of course :). I use the builtin film simulation in the Fuji, almost all the time monochrome + red filter, so the JPEGs I post on Instagram or Flickr are typically SOOC.

Hey!

I’m James, from Manchester, England. My day job is website usability, but outside of that I love to travel and photograph. After years of making pictures which anyone could’ve taken – of tourist sights etc – I discovered street photography and was instantly hooked. Every picture evokes a memory of where I was and what was happening – which makes trips more memorable as well as coming home with more interesting pictures. I try to get to a European city for a break every few months to head out on the streets, which is a great way to explore.  I carry my ONA Bowery with my Fujifilm X-T1 and the 27mm pancake (for stealthiness) or 35mm (for weather resistance). 40-50mm equivalent is the sweet spot for me. Also my phone, a few batteries and cables and that’s it. When travelling I prefer to find refreshments from bars along the way!

Hello Streethunters!

My name is Camillo Torrisi and I live in the South of Germany.  I have been a friend of street photographing for many years already because I like very much those photos taken in the public space. Each of them is unique because it is the only one of its kind, even if the scenes should be very similar.  I started street photographing in January 2016 after I had bought a new Fujifilm X-PRO1 camera. It was Thomas Leuthard who had motivated and inspired me. In street photographing I’m focusing on the black-white technique because I find that photos of that kind are particularly impressive. I like perceiving scenes of everyday life and I’m interested in presenting them in my photos. Thus I would like to make people better aware of our common environment, which we all do not any longer notice very attentively nowadays.

Hello Streethunters!

My name is Florian Payrou, I’m 27 and I live in a relatively annoying small town of France. My friends and I did a lot of experiences when we were younger but none of us got a camera because of that philosophy we got “live the present moment is better than memorize it on a picture”. I got many regrets later and decided to buy my first camera in 2014, a low end DSLR that I brought with me to a 3 months’ Taiwan.
That’s where I realized I was more interested in shooting daily life and people in the streets than monuments or landscapes: I sold everything within less than 1 month and purchased the smaller mirrorless camera I still own and which brings almost entire satisfaction.
I only use prime lenses which I love but find myself swapping them more and more and missing some shots while dirtying them: frustration arise. Thus I’m considering buying a zoom or a second camera (with a silent shutter in addition !!)

Hello fellow street hunters!

My name is Goran Begonja and I am Manchester based street photographer.  I am shooting “bearfoot” and only thing I have with me while walking is Ricoh GR. There is a reason why I am photographer not a writer so I will stop writing while it makes sense.
