Our weekly featurette This Week on Streethunters.net has returned once more to bring you your synopsis of the recent goings-on and happenings across the website and all our social media channels. If you’ve been out of the street photography news loop for a while and need a catch-up, you can browse through earlier weekly summaries on our This Week category page.
Approximately one month ago Digby Fullam announced the Streethunters Local Guide idea that Gaël Berthon shared with us. You can read all about it if you visit his blog post “Streethunters Local Guide: Become a Guide or Fixer for Street Photographers Visiting your City”. In a nutshell what is says is that if you want to volunteer to show another street photographer around your city, you can just share your info with Streethunters.net and be added to the list of Streethunters Local Guides.
Already many of you have been emailing us, asking for connections in various cities. As mentioned in the previous post by Digby, to make things faster and easier for you, we said we would make a list of names that you can easily browse through.
So today we are presenting you with the very first version of the Streethunters Local Guides list. We are pretty sure that new names will be added here as more and more people find out about it. It is a very helpful list that will prove useful to all you traveling Street Hunters!
One more thing. You might find that some names are in more than one cities. That is because some of you have volunteered for more than one location.
Recently Gaël Berthon, a street photographer who’s had his work featured in our Street Photo of the Week series, contacted us with an awesome suggestion. Why don’t we create a list of street photographer local guides and fixers who can help out travelling street photographers who are visiting their cities? We thought it was a great idea, and when we asked you what you thought about it on our Facebook Group, you all agreed too. So, now we’re launching the Streethunters Local Guide programme, and we need your help!
