Street photography tips & tricksWe always tell people on our courses to ‘travel light’ – which usually means ‘don’t lug a huge traditional tripod round with you all day’! There’s really no need, unless you’re shooting a night scene using a medium format camera for ad campaign.

Instead, get yourself a Joby Gorillapod. It’s a small, light and highly versatile tripod that fits in your bag or pocket. Its bendy legs let you wrap it round railings, trees, bicycle handlebars – just about anything. They come in various shapes and sizes to suit anything from an iPhone to a pro DSLR.

It’s the perfect street photographer’s accessory – and brilliant for night time or low light street photography. I wouldn’t leave home without mine.
