This August I was in London, UK for the 3rd Annual Street Hunters Meeting that was once again sponsored by our generous friends from COSYSPEED. You can read more about how that turned out in our “My trip to the UK, the 3rd Annual Street Hunters Meeting and the LSPF” post we published on September 8th. Pretty much every detail of the multi-day event can be found in that post for you to read.
Today’s post will be focusing more on the video we recorded on the actual day of the 3rd Annual Street Hunters Meeting which was on the 26th of August.
The Day We Filmed The Street Hunt #25 In London
Thomas Ludwig (from COSYSPEED) and myself woke up early on the morning of the 26th of August in order to grab some breakfast and get ready on time for the 3rd Annual Street Hunters meeting. The meeting point this year was at Waterloo station under the Big Clock and we had high expectations about the number of people that would be attending. We were staying in an Airbnb in Whitechapel this time with two more friends, James and Hamish from 35mmc. Unfortunately they couldn’t make it due to various family obligations, so we said our goodbyes and left for Waterloo.
We arrived at around 08:50 and to our surprise found people already waiting for us. By 09:30 everyone had arrived! There were many familiar faces in the group and some new ones too. It was great to see friends from previous Street Hunts and a pleasure to make new ones. I was so very much excited, I couldn’t contain myself. I needed to head out and start shooting. London was waiting and the weather was simply amazing!
Before the photo walk started, Thomas from COSYSPEED our sponsor gave away a free Camslinger Streetomatic Street Hunters Edition bag to one lucky winner! This year the winner was Pouru Onishi, a very experienced street photographer who has been shooting since the 70s! After the give away, we headed out.
We were a large group, so we decided to split into two smaller ones so we could move around more easily and also to not be so intimidating. Imagine stumbling upon a group of 25-30 street photographers in the streets! So, we split into two groups. One group was led by Alexey Kuzmis and the other by John Hughes. Both guys helped design the route we followed that day and knew the way to our final destination with their eyes closed. Thanks guys, without you we would have probably ended up on the wrong side of London! I was in group No1 that was led by Alexey to start off with. We went out of Waterloo station to Leake street where we made some shots surrounded by the graffiti art, then we headed to the river bank and from there we walked all the way up to Borough Market. In Borough Market we met with the other group and we took a 1 hour break for beverages and a snack. That is when I jumped ship, joining group No2 this time. We left Borough Market and headed towards the City Hall and from there we crossed over Tower Bridge and went directly to East London and Brick Lane. We shot in Brick Lane for nearly about 1 hour and then grabbed some lunch and a quick (but very good) coffee. Full of renewed energy we headed towards Regent’s Canal on foot and straight up to Hackney and from there to Hackney Wick and the LSPF venue where we met up with other street photographers such as Anastasia Nazare, Forrest Walker, Gabi Ben Avraham, Vineet Vohra, Richard Bram, Chris Suspect, Ken Walton, Cam Crosland and many, many more! So make sure you check out the whole video, from start to finish. You will get a chance to meet some really interesting street photographers you might want to follow on social media.
In this video I am using my favourite setup which is my good old Fujifilm X-Pro1 with my all-time favourite lens, the ever reliable XF18mm lens that is equivalent to a 28mm full frame lens. In addition I am using the Yongnuo YN560 Speedlite flash. For my off-camera flashing I am using a cable to connect my flashgun to my camera.
To record the video I have mounted a Sony ActionCam HDR-AS15 onto my camera’s hotshoe using a tripod to hotshoe adaptor that can easily be purchased on eBay or Amazon.
We shot and recorded the video throughout the day. We traversed from Waterloo station to Hackney Wick on foot! During the Street Hunt we had a wonderful time full of laughs. This time the video is around 37 minutes long. It is just long enough for you to enjoy your favourite beverage and snack while watching!
So time to get comfortable and sit back to view this latest street hunt video shot in London, UK!
