So as always the best laid plans of mice and men have gone awry, and it has now been almost six or so weeks since the last ‘This Week’ – our summaries of the latest goings on with the Streethunters.net blog and social media channels. With Christmas fast approaching, and our editorial team readying ourselves for a short break to recharge our batteries, we wanted to give a really quick rundown of the events of the last month and half if you’ve missed anything. So strap yourselves in, and get ready for a whistle-stop tour!

Street Photo of the week by Anton Fortein

Anton Fortein is a Street Photographer from the UK. He is also one of the SHRC Moderators, single handedly curating the Topics For Discussion and the Print Exchanges! He is also a massive contributor to the Community. He submits photos, comments and shares his experiences. Everyone in the SHRC recognises that. He is a talented film shooter, with unmatched knowledge on emulsions, film behaviours, film development and a passionate artist! Anton has proven to be a valuable member of the SHRC, a huge motivator and a great guy! He shoots using a Ricoh GR1 mostly, a Nikon FM3, a Leica IIIa, a Contax 167MT and other interesting film cameras through which he has managed to achieve a unique style. I have reached the point where I can recognise images of Anton from a mile away! Crazy about Tri-X and B&W photography, Anton shoots mostly in B&W but drops in an occasional colour shot every once in a while just to disrupt the waters! Besides Moderating the SHRC, Anton has also written a guest blog post for the StreetHunters.net website called “Analogue in a digital age… why I shoot film”. You can learn about how he approaches Street Photography and film by reading that post. I highly recommend it!

Inside Anton Fortein’s Camera bag! (Bag No9)

Hiya felow hunters!

Just a quick look inside my bag. I’m afraid this is not a very complicated bag. Just the essential for what I need for a walk-about. Missing from my bag is some bottled water. I will sometimes swap out the RicohGR1 with my Leica iiia, or my Contax167MT. But as most of you know by now, I almost totally use film. This is what I enjoy, and will never push anyone to use anything that seems fashionable, but what makes then feel good, and enjoy shoooting. And as you also know, I shoot mainly on the street, and my bag reflects this. I like crowds and getting up close and involved. I want my images to show involvement with a life lived and experienced on the street.
