Hello Street Hunters,

I’m a photographer based in Athens Greece. I first got involved with photography back in the early nineteens. After 10 years at a studio I decided to focus more on people.  The last 5 years in shooting at the streets. I make hopefully once a year a trip abroad and shoot either by my self or with my mates from uscita8. I like to gravitate towards a minimalistic approach, primarily focusing on the linearity and shape of the subject matter. I am a father, I love music and having coffee with friends.

“Hello StreetHunters!

My name is Nico Ouburg. Photographing people fascinated me from an early age; when I discovered the work of Ed van der Elsken I realised why. The key to the fascination is life itself. Even so, photography has not been an important aspect of my life for long. Actually, it only became a passion when I bought a digital camera in 2006.

Initially, I called myself a street photographer, but later I realised that I prefer to photograph people. No spectacular street photos, but rather the minor moments of life itself to which you as the observer can add the background.

I am an autodidact, as a photographer I search for my own path by scrutinising the work of others. Today’s photographers who inspire me are Rui Palha, Garry Winogrand , Alex Webb and Vivian Maier. And of course Ed, with his view of life itself.

“Hey guys!

Im a street photographer from the UK, in particular the North East located on the coast. For the past two years i have been living in a little seaside town called ‘Cleethorpes’ and this has been the attention of my most resent project; By the Sea (for what most people will recognise me for doing).
I have travelled to many different places and and shot a range of different street scenes but my attentions always falls back to the coast line, I think its quite an english pursuit and I’m keen to indulge it!

Anyway the contents of my bag…”

“Hi Street Hunters,

This is the second time I share my camera bag with Streethunters.net. The first time I shared by bag was 156 bags ago, in 2014 and my camera bag was camera bag No 4!

The bag itself is the same as then, it’s a ”non lookalike camera bag”. It is modified with extra padding and with a partition done by my self so I can put my two babies inside in a safe way. (But I usually leave one camera at home and put a bottle of water there instead).

The news is that I let my daughter use my older X-Pro1 system and I replaced it with a brand new Fujifilm X-100F and yes I’m thrilled with the change!
The X100F is so much smaller and compact, so easy to carry in my hand all day long. The files coming out from it are absolutely stunning. The camera is perfect for street YES!! No doubt about that!

The Olympus 35 SP (https://kenrockwell.com/olympus/35-sp.htm if you are interested) is my true old friend and companion but I rarely take them out together, they always bothering who I like most😂. So one at the time keeps them calm.

And it’s best for me too, at my age I need to be as light as possible because on a long weekend in eg. London or Athens I walk about 40-50km.

Singles Contest PHOS

Introduction

Last November, in Athens, the Phos Athens Street Photography festival took place. Streethunters.net was one of the organisers along with the Bulb collective and iFocus magazine. It was a massive success! We had a smashing time, got to meet many friends and make new ones. We shared experiences, we took long photo walks and lived and breathed for street photography for 3 full days. It was a blast! You can read about it in more detail in our blog post Phos Athens Street Photography Festival – The next day.

“Hi Street Hunters,

I’m a street photographer from Vancouver, Washington, near Portland, Oregon. Everyone who knows me, knows that my bag is actually this jacket! I’ve been into street for about 5 years now. I primarily shoot in downtown Portland, however I’ve shot in Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and Seattle. I’m excited most by being on the street, among people doing their thing.
