"American Girl" by Andrew Sweigart

Introduction

The 23 year old Bruce Springsteen sang a song about a girl named Mary from Arkansas when he was auditioning for his first record deal in 1973. The rest, as they say, is history…. But had he taken a street photo of Mary, Queen of Arkansas in the present day the story could have been a little different.

The Arkansas Senate has recently passed bill SB79, the ‘Personal Rights Protection Act’ and its implications for photographers taking photos of any resident of Arkansas are hugely ominous. The bill can be seen to be banning the publishing of street photography there outright.

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

As you might remember, a while back our dear friend Casper Macindoe retired from the Streethunters.net brand for personal reasons. Casper was a creative genius and a wonderful person, our team’s zen master. Always creative, tranquil and helpful. Him leaving left Andrew and myself struggling to keep up with the flow of things and the fast pace we had set for Streethunters.net by then. Happily, we have managed to succeed, especially with the help of Anton Fortein and the other SHRC moderators that have completely taken over management of our GooglePlus Community. This gave us some extra time to work on our website’s content and to keep it constantly up to date.

StreetHunters.net Exhibition day

Introduction

A couple of weeks ago, we had posted that the 1st official StreetHunters.net Readers Exhibition was up and open to the public of Athens, Greece. Well, since then many people visited, enjoyed our collection and expressed their interest in our work.

Last night was the last night of the exhibition and we went and removed all the photos from the venue. It was a nice couple of weeks with some good exposure for the Street Hunters that participated and the Streethunters.net brand. It was a unique experience for us and we enjoyed every moment of it!

Street Hunters Exhibition at Mosaic Bar / Athens Gallery

Introduction

A while back, Andrew, Casper and myself had the idea of organising the 1st official Streethunters.net Readers Exhibition. This exhibition was going to be something like a warm up, a preparation for more future exhibitions. For this first attempt we only invited members of the SHRC (StreetHunters.net Readers Community) to participate. The members of the SHRC are highly involved in anything we like to try with StreetHunters.net and we really appreciate all their support, dedication and understanding they have shown us over the past year. If you would like to become a member of the SHRC, all you have to do is ask. If you have some Street Photography work in your G+ portfolio your acceptance will be swifter.

Website is clean from Malware and protected against attacks

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

Some of you might have noticed an ugly red screen popping up when visiting our website pages today. The reason for that was because our website had been attacked by a very nasty and very fresh Malware that only appeared on the Interwebs 4 days ago on Sunday. Our website got attacked and successfully infected yesterday and then again very early in the morning today.

About our security policy

We take security very seriously at Streethunters.net and we do not leave things to chance. Our website had all the latest security patches installed when the attack took place and is also backed by a highly respected security suite since it first launched keeping our data and you safe from almost all possible attacks. Unfortunately this latest attack was by a brand new Malware that struck us very quickly indeed, before our security software had any chance to update.

Announcing the winner of the Cosyspeed Camslinger Contest!

Introduction

What an exciting month that November has been! Not long ago Cosyspeed asked us to hold a special Street Photography contest for you the Street Hunters Readers, in order to celebrate a new CAMSLINGER release. The brand new CAMSLINGER 160 Street edition! We thank the guys at Cosyspeed for this smashing collaboration. We loved it!

What was the contest about

What we had asked you guys to do, in case you missed the contest post, was to try and replicate as best as possible the famous photo by Henri Cartier-Bresson known as the “Decisive Moment”! Then Cosyspeed would look through all the photos and would choose a winner! The winner would be the photo that looked closer to the original and would win the Cosyspeed CAMSLINGER 160 Street edition! Awesome!

Today is the day!

So the day has come for us to unveil the winning photo! Additionally we will share with you all the total 15 photographs that we received, along with the name of each Photographer. We thank you all for your participation and congratulations to the winner!
