Street Hunters 2019 - There is nothing permanent except change

Introduction

Dear Readers,

If you are a regular on this website, you might have noticed that it has been a while since I have personally reached out to you with a blog post. Since the beginning of the new year, I have only published a few Camera bags, that you have so generously shared with us and some Throwback Tuesday posts. The last few months have been very busy for me. I have had my hands full at work and at the same time my personal life became more demanding. As a result, I had to sacrifice time from Streethunters.net. Fortunately things are now back to normal, and I am once again ready to pour my energy and my passion into Street Photography.

The purpose of today’s post

The purpose of today’s post is to make an important announcement and to share with you what to expect from the Streethunters.net website and its Social Media channels in 2019.

Introduction

As the StreetHunters idea became a reality and took flight, the pressure increased. The pressure to deliver the goods. The challenge was on. I had to produce images and I had to write about my journey as a StreetHunter. This was, and still is, no easy feat. I had just dipped my toes into street photography’s waters and I was still definitely at the shallow end of the pool. Both Rob and Spyros had some experience. I had very, very little. It was exciting and intimidating, this challenge… but I welcomed it. I sweated and stressed over it, but I welcomed it. I was falling deeply in love with street photography and I wanted to become a great Street Hunter. I wanted to be a good photographer. Once I embraced the fact that being part of this project would give me the support, the encouragement and the push to develop my skills, it was, and has been, pedal-to-the-metal.

But, it hasn’t been a smooth ride. Like any creative endeavor, each success was followed by multiple failures. Personally, there’s been several moments of doubt. And the StreetHunters project hit rough patches as well. But anything good is worth fighting for and fight we did.

Introduction

Just barely over one year ago, I began my Street Hunters adventure. Needless to say, it has profoundly affected my life. It has turned into an obsession. It went from being an experiment to a full-blown addiction. Fourteen months ago, if a psychic would have told me I would be consumed by street photography, I would have laughed. If they would have told me I’d forsake hours of sleep poring over images, researching street photography’s masters out writing blog posts like this… I’d laugh harder. And if they would have told me I’d go crazy editing for the weekend, checking the weather forecast and basically praying for a few good hours to shoot… I’d be in tears.

But, it obviously would have all been true. Truth is, I’m thankful to be in the grasp of this thing that we do. I’ve pursued other creative endeavors before. I’ve been a journalist and a musician, and still enjoy making some noise now and again. And I followed my heart with each of those artistic notions. However, I didn’t see street photography coming. It wasn’t even on the radar. The reality is, I was pushed!
