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.

The Beginners Street Photography Workshop in Thessaloniki, Greece!

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,
I know how overwhelming it can be for you, the beginner street photographer, to look through all the options street photography has to offer, organise all information available from various sources, choose what is best for you and select your path. I know this first hand. It took me many years to finally find myself as a street photographer.

Through this course, I want to share with you what I have learned through the years, help guide you on your path and try to inspire you to see street photography from a different perspective. I will teach you composition techniques, lighting techniques, some basic theory about the masters of photography that have set the foundation for modern street shooting and many other things which you will find listed below in the course notes. However my most important goal will be to teach you to be yourself and how not to be afraid to express your emotions through your photography.

A workshop taught by two tutors!

But this time I will not be teaching alone. I am very excited to announce to you all that I will be teaching alongside acclaimed Street Photographer Yiannis Yiasaris. Yiannis is a Greek Street Photographer from Thessaloniki that is based in Melbourne, Australia. He is a world famous published photographer that has won numerous awards and has had his work exhibited many times. He will be travelling to Thessaloniki this February to teach this exciting workshop with me in his beautiful hometown. For more information on Yiannis Yasaris, please read the Tutors section below.

Street Hunt 23 in Athens, Greece

Introduction

Dear  Streethunters.net Readers hello!

It has been a while since the previous Street Hunt. Due to the fact that Street Hunt videos require some time to be shot, edited and prepared for post, we are not posting as many as we used to, so we are sorry for that. However, we are trying to keep our YouTube channel active with our new series called Street Talk. If you haven’t read or heard about Street Talk yet, you can always jump to the Street Talk introductory blog post or visit the Street Talk YouTube Playlist that is part of the Street Hunters YouTube channel.

Today I am happy to present to you with our latest Street Hunt video, Street Hunt #23 that we shot in Athens, Greece.

Street Hunt 22

Introduction

Dear  Streethunters.net Readers hello!

Today I am happy to present to you the new Street Hunt #22 video that we shot in Iraklio, Crete. I know you have all been eagerly awaiting a new street hunt video since we released the street hunt video of the 2nd Annual Street Hunters Meeting in London back in September. The reason it’s taken us so long to publish this new street hunt is because we managed to record a total of 16GB in video files during our day that needed processing and editing and synchronising with the hundreds of photos we shot. We had to go through every photo we each took, time stamp them by the second, and then splice them in with the footage! The amount of work required was massive and it took me several months to complete. I guess, if this was my full time job, I could have had it ready much sooner, but I worked on the video late at night after work, so that was the best I could do under the circumstances.

We need more camera bags

Introduction

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.

Street Hunt 20 - Rethymno Carnival

Introduction

Dear Streethunters.net Readers,

It has been a while since our last Street Hunt video release but the wait is now over. After a couple months of shooting, organising content and producing this video it is time for you all to enjoy it.

Today, we will take you on a tour of Rethymno city in Crete during the 2016 Carnival day. We start our video in the heart of the carnival parade and just let loose and go with the flow, following the fun around each corner until we reach a most unexpected finale. I say we, because this time the team is made of four street photographers. Digby Fullam editor of Streethunters.net, Dan Berntsson street photographer and good friend from Sweden, Anastasia Nazare street photographer and good friend from Greece and myself.

Inside Spyros Papaspyropoulos’ Camera bag! (Bag No82)

Hello Street Hunters,

My name is Spyros Papaspyropoulos and I am one of the founders of this website, www.streethunters.net. I am a Greek-British halfling and I live on the beautiful island of Crete. For you that don’t know where Crete is, it is a biggish island between Greece and Africa. I love shooting street photography because it liberates me in a unique way and acts like a form of psychotherapy. Usually when I return from a Street Hunt (as I like to call photo walks) I am relaxed and have a sense of accomplishment which I find very satisfying. Of course there are times when I have a non-productive walk but hey, what can you do? It is all part of the street photography experience.  During the past year, I have been using flash in my street photography a lot. I really like how I can manipulate the light and “bend it” to my will. Using a flash makes me have a much more direct approach with my subjects, but I think it is worth it.

I like to use a bag that helps me move freely and at the same time carry all the necessary gear I need with me on a Street Hunt. That is why I have chosen to use the Cosyspeed Camslinger 160 Street Edition.
