xmas 2017


Dear Readers!

The holidays are upon us! We can feel the celebratory mood in the air around us. It is a time for us lucky ones to reconnect with our families and the people we love. I say “us lucky ones” because I know that some of you who are reading this will probably be working, or don’t have the means to be with their loved ones during the holiday season. To all of you I send my warmest and most positive thoughts. I have been there myself and I know the feeling. It is temporary. Next year things will get better. To everybody else that will be celebrating these days with their friends and family I wish all the best. Enjoy your time with them, cherish it and make memories with your cameras!

Inside David Fidalgo’s Camera bag! (Bag No144)

Hello Hunters!

My name is David Fidalgo, also known as “Bricks”. I’m one of the CoFounders of La Calle es Nuestra, one of the most important Collectives in the Spanish Community.
At my beginnings in Street Photography I used to shot with a heavy full frame system, which was also very noisy (when you use the burst mode in this kind of systems, you feel as if you are in the middle of the war with an AK-47).

That’s not nice for Street Photography (at least for me).

Last year I bought the X100F compact system and everything changed. Now I go everywhere with it and feel like a ninja… silent and lethal. That’s why my advice is that, talking about cameras for Street Photography, smaller is better (maybe not in terms of pure quality, but your pictures will look more candid and original).

Let’s check what’s inside my bag!

November Nominees for

Dear Readers,

The eleventh Monthly Theme Contest photos for 2017 have been submitted and we have made our choices. Please keep in mind that the process of choosing a photo from the November 2017 Street Photography Contest Submissions was extremely hard!

But let’s take a look at all the photos that were submitted and accepted in this Monthly Theme Contest.

ATTENTION: This time round we had a lot of submissions that were out of subject! Maybe “Hatred” was too difficult an assignment. Anyway many good photos had to stay out because of this. So this time we have kept only 20 images. The photos that didn’t meet the Theme or the Editors criteria were not chosen to be in the shortlist. They have been disqualified or removed. If your pic isn’t in the shortlist, don’t get discouraged. Try again next month!

At this moment I would like to thank each and every participant for submitting their photograph. We have a great collection of photos with “Hatred” to show you! This time we had 20 valid submissions which can all be seen below.

Inside João Teixeira’s Camera bag! (Bag No143)

Hello Street Hunters,

My name is João Teixeira, I’m from Lisbon, Portugal and i am a graphic designer.
I like photojournalism, travel, documentary and street photography. The streets are the most accessible subject for me, since i use public transport in my way to work. It is mainly during this time that i try to do some streetphotography. That’s why my camera bag is also my lunch bag, and instead of having some fancy accessories, i carry a fork, a knife and some fruit.

I started to shoot the streets in 2013 with a DSLR and a 50mm equivalent prime but the weight and size started to annoy me. I don’t shoot every day, and i never know if i am gonna have the time and the will for taking photos. The Fuji x100s is a camera that i can have with me always, and I’d rather prefer to carry it and take no photos than wanting to take a photo and having no camera.
I am still trying to find a path and defining my style, until then, i can only practise and learn.

Inside William J. Simpson’s Camera bag! (Bag No142)

Hello fellow Street Hunters,

My name is William J Simpson, (the J stands for Jack) hence being affectionately known in most street photography circles as @jackthestreet. I currently live in Napa California however most of my street work has been done in San Francisco and abroad when travelling. I am a San Francisco Paramedic by trade so cruising the city by ambulance all day allows me to make mental notes of places where the light and setting are ripe for interesting photographs when off duty. I shoot both digital and film and only prime lenses; the 27mm and 23mm being my two favorites. I am drawn to shooting oddities in the environment, minimalism, bold colors, low angles and abstract alignment of subject and background – but this is forever changing and part of what makes street photography so enjoyable.

Announcing the Christmas Beginners Street Photography Workshop in Athens, Greece!


Dear Readers,

I know how overwhelming it can be for you, the beginner street photographer, to look through all the options street photography has to offer, organise the information, choose what is best for you and select your path. I know this first hand. It took me many years to finally find myself as a street photographer.

Through this course, I want to share with you what I have learned through the years, help guide you on your path and try to inspire you to see street photography from a different perspective. I will teach you composition techniques, lighting techniques, some basic theory about the masters of photography that have set the foundation for modern street shooting and many other things which you will find listed below in the course notes. However my most important goal will be to teach you to be yourself and how not to be afraid to express your emotions through your photography.

Flash Street Photography Workshop by Spyros Papaspyropoulos on 23rd December in Athens, Greece

Announcing Christmas Flash Street Photography Workshop in Athens, Greece!


Dear Readers,

As I have mentioned many times before, Flash Street Photography excites me very much. I think that it bring my street photography to another level and I think it can do the same for you. For that reason I want to share my excitement about Flash Street Photography with you by teaching you about this style of shooting at my Flash Street Photography Workshops in Athens.

It has now been nearly 4 years since I started shooting Flash Street Photography and to my surprise I have found out that most people don’t really care about the flash in the streets. You are welcome to ask my 44 students so far about this. People really don’t mind that much been flashed. Of course there are always exceptions to the rule, but mostly just don’t mind! I think the reason for this is the upfront style of a flash shot that makes it a more sincere style of shooting than let’s say when one is lurking in the shadows capturing sly shots and I think that is how people see it. What I mean is that there is nothing sneaky about a flash shot. It is brutally honest. There is no doubt about what the street photographer is doing. This gives me even more incentive to keep on shooting Flash Street Photography and now I feel that I know more than enough to share my experiences with you in a very easy to digest way. So read along, let me explain what this workshop is going to be all about!
