Nicholas Gooden Interview for Street Hunters by Timothy Lunn

NOTE: This is a Guest Blog post written by Timothy Lunn exclusively for www.streethunters.net.


You’ve just taken a fantastic photograph.

Great composition. Dramatic lighting. Bold tones.

But how do you share it?

We’ve all made mistakes with social media. Whether it was chasing a trend, posting ‘like for like’ or plastering a photo with more hashtags than an Instagram sunset, it’s not easy to draw the line between self-promotion and self-importance!

So how do we share a photograph responsibly?

To help answer this question, StreetHunters talked to a leading London Street Photographer and Director of Marketing, Nicholas Goodden.

We need more camera bags


Dear Streethunters.net Readers, for more than 2 years now we’ve been sharing with you the contents of your camera bags. We have finally reached the point where we are at the 100 bag precipice. We have published 99 street photography Camera Bags and we are waiting for that elusive 100th camera bag to one day pop into our mailbox.

Why the camera bags have stopped

Since we published camera bag 99 on August 1st 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.

Inside Nicholas Goodden’s Camera bag! (Bag No85)

My camera bag is by ONA but it’s not always the most convenient when I’m running across the street to get a shot, plus it makes me look like a teacher (sorry teachers out there!). Instead I often just grab my backpack, it’s easier and more discreet in the city.

I currently work with two main cameras. The first is the Sony A7RII (which I used to shoot this) with a range of excellent lenses. It’s fantastic but in my opinion goes against the whole mirrorless = smaller size argument. The camera is big, the lenses are big and the shutter sound is loud. Not my kind of street camera. I don’t actually enjoy using that camera on a day to day basis so I keep it for client jobs, action shots or low light situations where it is superior to any other camera I recently tried.

My everyday street camera is the new Pen-F by Olympus which I have owned since February. It’s a very thoughtfully designed camera, not just good looks. I use it without really thinking or fiddling, it feels natural like an extension of me.

A lighter/smaller camera also means I do not step out of the house without a camera, crucial as a street photographer. Lens-wise I normally only go out with one lens to suppress the head-ache of having to choose.

The 20 Influential Street Photographers 2015

The first crowdsourced list of Street Photographers ever made

Two weeks ago we asked for your help to find the 20 most influential contemporary Street Photographers and the feedback we received was amazing. The comments just kept flying in and we are so grateful for that overwhelming participation. You recommended many Street Photographers out of which a list of 75 names was finally made. We think that this has been the first crowdsourced list of Street Photographers ever made and you all made it! Thank you!

You recommended and you voted

A week ago, we asked you dear Readers to do one more thing for us and that was to vote for your most influential Street Shooter out of the list of 75. You voted 21,137 times!

Thank you!

It is understandable that each one of you is influenced by different Street Photographers for different reasons and that is what makes this vote even more interesting. Influences play an important role in the way an artist perceives the world and his/her art, so it is only logical that each one of us has different sources of inspiration, making our perception of what we consider “an influence” unique. What is important is that you all helped us with your vote to find who are the 20 most influential Street Photographers at this time according to you. So here they are:
