  1. I really like the people you get for street photography, they always seem to be friendly and polite, it still isn't a genre I could be comfortable with doing. In truth I'm not a lover of photographing people per se, I'm much more comfortable with my nature and wildlife. I obviously need to use my studio more and get out photographing people until I'm completely comfortable with it. As always a brilliant video and I can see why so many other photographers are willing to be filmed by you or have conversations with you. There's obviously a mutual respect.

  2. Question (applies to all street photography like this): Years ago you would never be able to publish these types of photos without a written model release.You couldn't even enter them into contests in photo magazines. Today, these guys are playing "gotcha", i.e., no model release. So the question becomes (1) can you do anything with these photos other than load them to your computer and forget them? (2) Can you distribute theses photos with a serious publisher? (3) What protection have you from liability if you self-publish (on-line, etc.) and get a call from the subject's lawyer? We have dozens of same-type videos re how to do street photography, but none I know of which discusses resulting liability for invasion of privacy. Knowledgeable comments?

  3. Thank you for your video! I do street photography a lot and I wouldn't consider his work to be exactly that. On his instagram feed there are hardly any people and if there is someone in the frame, the person is often too far away. I think this best advice for his candid shots would be to get closer. Using a more discrete camera would also help to improve his street photograhy game. Don't get me wrong, I like his work for what it is, but it is not street photograhy.
