“Hi StreetHunters!

My name is Rom Amir and I’m 38 years old amateur street photographer. I’ve picked up street photographing not a while ago after experiencing all sort of photographing and ever since focus all my photography efforts on the street. I’ve always been attracted to photography and I guess I inherit that from my father who also was an amateur photographer, and I’m still using his old Pentax ME film camera to photograph sometimes. Other then newly purchased Canon 6D camera body I try not to spend too much on gear as I believe it not about the gear… I’m spending my time partly in China and partly in Israel so I get to travel a lot in big cities – Shanghai, Hong-Kong, Singapore etc. which is amazing for street chasing! I am inspired by street photographers such as Bruce Gilden, Allex Libec & Felix Lupa.

“Hello Street Hunters,

My name is Dionisis Limperopoulos and I am a 24 year old photography enthusiast based in Patras, Greece. It’s been a year since I grabbed my first camera and the love for photography is growing stronger every minute since then. The main photographic genres that I love practicing are Street, Landscape and Product photography.

When I am trying to create street photos I use exclusively film cameras with prime lenses for one main reason, every click counts. It’s been a great way to improve my skills since I have to think twice before the shutter is released. Composition, framing, exposure and timing have to be precise because there is no way to correct your mistakes.

The photographers who inspire me are Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alex Webb, John Free, Vivian Maier, Robert Frank, Paul Strand, Nikos Oikonomopoulos and Arnold Newman.

Hope one day I will capture the decisive moment.

“Marcin Piekalkiewicz is a photographer born in Warsaw, Poland, currently based in Malta.

He studied electrical engineering, socioeconomics, and Italian literature, but his genuine interest in people made him then switch to street photography. He defines it as an artistic opportunity to make ordinary moments meaningful by turning them into stories about societies and individuals. He has followed workshops with David Gibson and Matt Stuart. Both encounters have had a significant influence on his work. Some of his individual documentary projects were exhibited in various locations in Italy and received attention from ANSA (Italian Associated Press National Agency). His street photography portfolio has recently been published in Eyeshot Magazine.

Street Hunters 2019 - There is nothing permanent except change

Introduction

Dear Readers,

If you are a regular on this website, you might have noticed that it has been a while since I have personally reached out to you with a blog post. Since the beginning of the new year, I have only published a few Camera bags, that you have so generously shared with us and some Throwback Tuesday posts. The last few months have been very busy for me. I have had my hands full at work and at the same time my personal life became more demanding. As a result, I had to sacrifice time from Streethunters.net. Fortunately things are now back to normal, and I am once again ready to pour my energy and my passion into Street Photography.

The purpose of today’s post

The purpose of today’s post is to make an important announcement and to share with you what to expect from the Streethunters.net website and its Social Media channels in 2019.

“Hi, my name is Fanis Logothetis.

I’m a 43 years old professional photographer based in Athens, Greece .

I shoot conceptual and studio photography amongst other things but my biggest love is street photography. I started to shoot on the streets in the early 90s and since then I never stopped .

Something about the cities, the people, the urban element, making me want to keep on exploring.

I like to travel light and blend in, so depending the situation I choose if I take a DSLR with me.

“Hey!

My name is Daniel Gjurchinovski. At age 9, I saved my allowance money to buy my first camera (a plastic 110). I am in love with photography and making pictures ever since. Architect by vocation, but day-jobbing in the field of graphic design. Passionate about photography as a hobby but also with a fair share of paid gigs.

I enjoy shooting street and do that on a daily basis. Always trying to photograph thematically, on a self assigned project/subject. Recently that resulted with a solo exhibition named “Parallel Skopje”, a project that I am really proud of.

Also, I never miss a chance to make a portrait, as I love interacting with subjects. This may sound strange, but, shooting candidly on the street, and interacting with the subjects in the studio (or location) made a perfect balance for me.

“Hello,

My name is Enrique, I’m 59 years old and I live in Madrid, I’ve been doing street photography for so many years that I lost count. I always liked the life on the street and what happens to its people. The street photography is simple you only have to discover, create, collect, organise, and anticipate things that nobody would see if you did not see them. You just have to wait for the right light to appear, the right shadow, the right smile, the right moment, and then have the serenity to catch it. Street photography is that simple. I’m autodidactic.

“Hey!

I’m a photographer based just outside London. I’ve been shooting street and documentary projects for the last 7 years. Vary rare I leave the house without a camera these days. My wife still finds it odd but I’m happiest when I have it.

My gear is very simple and to be honest I vary rarely take my bag.. Just camera and batteries and I’m good to go. My biggest inspirations are Don McCullin and David Alan Harvey – If I could create work 1/100th as good as theirs I’m happy.

Cheers!
