A short post today as I am now on holiday, currently located in Devizes, near Bath. If you are near the area and fancy a shoot let me know. Last week I arrived in London and had a chance to take a photography walk with my friend Angelo Gifford, who is a co-owner of Mewe’s Street Photography Community (SPC). Angelo often captures photos of the street just South of the Thames, and is an expert on the how light bounces around the area and the locations that can be found.
If there has to be a point to this blog, then it would be to encourage more people to explore an area with someone else. We each only have one pair of eyes, and can get into habits which crush creativity. It is also nice to have someone to talk to. Lastly, if you are in a new area, it is certain that a local photographer will have some insider information on the location, including the interesting spots and how light works at different times of the day.
Next month I will be heading to Glasgow, on some unrelated-to-photography engagements. However, I would love to meet up with someone for a shoot if you can get to the town centre. Towards the end of the month I will be in Thailand, shooting street with a distinctly ‘beach’ theme. Locations will include Phuket and Pattaya.
That is all for today folks, so find a friend and keep clicking!
MEWE – why not join the SPC Mewe Community? Come on in, you are all invited (and the water is warm).
great post and images, and nice to hear you had a meet up with Angelo, I agree it’s great to explore an area with otherphotographers 🙂
A partner can give you more courage to take certain photographs but the drawback can be if they operate at a different pace it can be frustrating. Excellent photographs. Thanks for sharing.
