How it came about –
I’ve been a member of a photographic society (Preston Photographic Society) for some time now and really enjoy the evening when a speaker comes to give a talk which inspires me to take up my camera and try something new.
Over the years I’ve tried many things photographically and been inspired by many a talk, demo and not to forget some YouTube videos, but I always returned to people photography and wanting to capture them being real. The true person, not the pose so to speak, thus street photography was a natural fit that I eventually stumbled upon.
My image “Street Tango” was one of the first street images I shared at the club. ‘Street Tango’ did rather well, winning the opening night competition as voted by members. I continue to enter street images into various competition both internally or externally, and some do rather well.
A few years on and members of the club and other local photographers were referring to me as a street photographer, some were even asking if I’d put together a talk about the subject. Eventually, “On the Streets” was conceived.
