FOUNDER & WORKSHOP LEADER
My interest in street photography started when, as a photojournalist, I pounded the streets of London, shooting material for news and features. I’m a brand ambassador for Fujifilm – an ‘Official Fujifilm X-Photographer’. When I’m not working as a street photographer I run a commercial and editorial photography business, I lecture on photography degree courses, I lecture at camera clubs and I’m a featured writer / photographer in photographic and travel magazines. My first street photography book, ‘Mastering Street Photography’, is a best-seller and my latest book, based on 52 street photography projects, is now available. Please check out my YouTube channel, which is 100% street!
