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.

Send in more camera bags to streethunters.net

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers, for more than 4 years, we have been sharing with you the contents of your camera bags. Just so you know, we take great pride in showing off your camera bags dear Readers! At this point in time we have published 158 street photography Camera Bags already but lately things have slowed down. 

Why the camera bags have stopped

Since we published camera bag 158 on July 16th there have been no new submissions and as such the “What’s in your Camera Bag?” weekly posts have stopped being published. Unlike our other posts, the “What’s in your Camera Bag” posts depend 100% on you and your level of participation.

Portland Street Photography Workshop Announcement

THE INTERMEDIATE STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP IN PORTLAND, OREGON, USA!

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

Have you reached a point in your Street Photography where you feel you need that extra push in order to get the results you need but you just can’t seem to get there?

Have you found that you are repeating yourself and can’t produce results that get you excited any more?

Don’t worry. This happens to all of us. All you need is a mentor to get you back on track and help you find yourself as a new and improved street photographer. A street photographer that has evolved into the better version of himself.

Through this course, I will be sharing with you what I have learned through my years as a street photographer and I will help guide you on your true path while trying to inspire you to see street photography from a different perspective. I will teach you advanced composition & lighting techniques, how to be yourself when shooting and taking advantage of your own personal skills and more.

This time I am not alone! Enjoy the benefits of a a Workshop Taught By Two Tutors!

This time I will not be teaching alone. I am very excited to announce to you all that for the second time round, I will be teaching alongside Associate Street Hunter John Hughes. John is a British Street Photographer from UK that is based in Bury St Edmunds, UK.

For more information on John Hughes, please read the Tutors section below.

Roza Vulf Floating World exhibition

From the 10th of April until the 10th of May, Monday 14.30 – 19.30, Tuesday – Saturday 10.30 – 19.30 Roza Vulf’s “Floating World” exhibition will be on display at Leica Store Roma at Via dei Due Macelli 57.

Roza is originally from Vilnius, Lithuania. After spending most of her adult life in her country, she moved to Leipzig, Germany and finally to Rome, Italy, where she still resides now.

She is a self taught street photographer so the translation of her perception of the immediate environment is what she captures, interested in moments seen on the street, the underground or the beach. All her characters have a certain style that makes the viewer understand that Roza feels at home operating in a documentary way.

The Floating World exhibition takes its roots from the 17th century Japanese Art called Ukyio. It was originally translated to mean ‘sad world’, but with the evolution of language, literature and the usage of the term itself, the most recent translation of Ukiyo-e pertains to the phrase ‘floating world’ or fleeting pictures of the world.
