Street Hunt 19

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

Today we present you with another Street Hunt video! It is the 2nd one in just one month and this time we shot in my home town of Rethymno. I am not alone in this Street Hunt either. I have the very interesting and talented Anastasia Nazare shooting alongside me. This is the first time she has shared her photos online, since she is a very private street photographer. She uses a Ricoh GR and at night she rocks the flash.

This video was shot during the night of Tsiknopempti. I have mentioned this night in the past, and I shot Tsiknopempti street hunt videos in 2014 and 2015. . The veteran Streethunters.net Readers might remember what this day is all about in Greece, but I would like to explain about this day for our newer Readers that might have not heard of this before.

Street Hunt 18

Introduction

One month ago, I met Yiannis Yiasaris in Thessaloniki, Greece. Thessaloniki is the largest city in the Northern part of the country, and is a beautiful place that is focused on Culture and the Arts. Yiannis is a Greek Street Photographer currently living in Melbourne, Australia. He enjoys shooting all over the world (Tokyo, London, Greece and more!). If you follow our groups and Facebook, Flickr or GooglePlus you probably have seen his work before. He is a great Street Photographer and a wonderful person. He showed me around town and I have to say, I had the time of my life!

Before I continue, I would like to point something out. In the video you will see, I keep on pronouncing Yiannis’ surname wrong. The intonation should be on the second “a” not the first “a” in “Yiasaris”. 

So before I went to Thessaloniki, Yiannis and myself talked about filming a Street Hunt there. He liked the idea so that is what we did on the second day of my visit.

Street Hunt No17 - Street Photography in Rome, Italy

Introduction

2 weeks ago Digby and myself went to Rome to film a new Street Hunt video. Rome is a magical city, truly eternal and magnificent and I highly recommend you visit it to shoot in its streets. You can read more about our experience there in the Rome Street Hunt post we released when we got back from our trip. In that post I mentioned our days in Rome but left out the details of the actual Street Hunt day so I could give you all a thorough report today, on the day we posted the video on our YouTube channel.

Street Hunt No16 - Street Photography in Istanbul, Turkey

Introduction

3 weeks ago when I returned from this amazing Street Hunt in Istanbul I wrote a post in which I shared the experiences I had during my stay in that amazing city. I was in Istanbul for 5 days and each day was special for its own reasons. Even though I have shared nearly all experiences from that trip, I deliberately left out details about the actual Street Hunt day. I thought that it would be much better to include the details of the day we filmed the Street Hunt in this post.

This Street Hunt was Street Hunt number 16 and it was sponsored by our amazing friends at COSYSPEED. COSYSPEED has supported www.streethunters.net for the second time and we are ever grateful. Plans for future collaborations exist and will be announced in due time, so stay tuned for more exotic trips in the future! Thanks COSYSPEED.

Street Hunt No 14 - Off camera flash Street Photography

Introduction

People from all around the world visit Rethymno in Crete during Carnival time. The atmosphere, the people, the buzz and the electricity in the air during Carnival season is invigorating and refreshing, especially for a small town like Rethymno. Carnival is a big thing here and everyone prepares for this day months in advance. Hotels, rooms, suites & villas are over booked and packed with visitors. Groups fly in from the USA, Europe and Asia. There is a real mix of cultures and everyone is happy, excited and ready to party! I am sure that you will get a glimpse of the Rethymno Carnival fever through the Street Hunt #14 video below.

Street Hunt No 13 - Off camera flash Street Photography

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

Every year in my home town of Rethymno in Crete, there is a time for carnival festivities. It is a season that lasts around a couple of weeks and it transforms my little town into a surreal place, filled with the most amazing people that gather from all over Greece. There are 3 major events that take place during that time. The first one is what we call “Tsiknopempti” which is a day when all Greeks celebrate by eating grilled meat. The second big event, one week later, is the Carnival Night Parade that starts on a Saturday night and ends early in the morning and the third and most important event is the actual Carnival Day that is full of parades, dancing, laughing and celebrations. During that time Rethymno is always overbooked and overcrowded and everyone is happy! That means that everyone loves to have their photo taken too, so it is an ideal place to be if you are a Street Photographer like me.

This Street Hunt was recorded on Tsiknopempti night, the first of the three major events mentioned above.

Street Hunt No 12 - Street Photography in Hamburg, Germany

Introduction

Dear StreetHunters.net Readers,

About a month ago, on the 12th of December to be precise, I flew to Hamburg in Germany to record a Street Hunt video, sponsored by our friends at Cosyspeed. Cosyspeed for all of you that don’t know is the German company that makes the high quality Camslinger camera bags that can be worn around your waist or your shoulder. My trip lasted from the 12th of December to the 15th of December and 2 days after I returned to my base in Crete, I wrote a detailed post about my experiences there as a Street Hunter. If you haven’t read the post “Street Photography in Hamburg, Germany”, I recommend you give it a read before you watch today’s Street Hunt video, as it will prepare you nicely for what you will see.

Visiting a foreign city and country to film a Street Hunt was a challenge for me. I was concerned about the German laws of privacy a lot before my trip and I was trying to think of ways to photograph in the street without showing faces. I had a talk with Thomas Ludwig of Cosyspeed before I arrived to Germany and he reassured me not to worry. After a few minutes of Street Hunting in Hamburg, I saw that the people of the city didn’t mind to be photographed. Some reacted very positively to it and that was a pleasant surprise to me.

Street Hunt No 11 - Film Street Photography in Iraklio, Crete

Introduction

I had been thinking that I have been doing many Street Hunts in the town I live in, Rethymno. I got worried that you guys might have got bored of looking at the same streets all the time, so I decided to jump into the car and drive 80km to Iraklio the largest city of Crete and capital of the island. Iraklio is one of the largest cities in Greece and has a rich history. I will not get into that at the moment, but if you are interested to look it up, just click on this wikipedia link about Iraklio or Heraklion. I went with Digby Fullam a Rethymno based English StreetHunters.net Reader that also helped me film the intro to this video. Thank you for that Digby!

This walk is quite interesting because I am using a Camera I haven’t used before on a Street Hunt and also because I find myself experiencing dramatic weather changes throughout the course of the recording. Luckily I was carrying an umbrella, because as you will see there is rain, sun, wind and of course people that I have to tackle with before managing to finish the film and complete the video. But I had a blast! I had to change camera settings nearly before each shot I made, due to the rapid weather changes which made things for me even more complicating.
