Now, I’m not afraid to say that I’m new at this style of photography. When I was in my late teens to early twenties my primary camera was firstly an Agfa Billy, then an Olympus OM2 and I burned through a lot of my weekly pay check on film to support my hobby. I remember picking up the two to three rolls of processed film from the photo kiosk in my local shopping centre, rushing home to check them out and and and proudly showing my parents, friends, and whoever else would look, endless shots of trees, cars, our cats and whatever else I thought would make a good image.
Eventually, I suppose, I got tired of shooting the same style of image and my attention drifted to other interests.
Now, some 20 years later with amazing developments in technology, I’ve armed myself with an iPhone 6+ and have jumped in feet first and have rekindled my passion for photography. After all these years I’m now shooting work that I’m proud of and am fortunate to have found a market for. I’m back to shooting a lot of images and love having the ability to post process on my phone and to be able to consign my duds to the trash bin.
This series of work represents my first real foray into street photography, an area I thought I’d explore after reading an article on Eyeem about the noted street photographer Saul Leiter
