Is Claiming You’re a “Minimalist Street Photographer” Just a Lazy Excuse?

Let me tell you, I love minimalism. Honestly, I love everything about it. From minimalist living to minimalist spending, I’m someone who has been caught up in the buzz that has come our way over the past few years. And, of course, I love minimalist street photography. But as that sub-genre grows, I’ve started to think about why so many street photographers dig it too. And whilst it has been great for the scene, I’m also wondering if it is doing some harm....

Turning 10: Chris Gampat Gets Candid About Running The Phoblographer

Our EIC, Chris Gampat, once said to me “Dan, I trust you with interviews and would like to give you as much creative license as possible”. Famous last words, as just when The Phoblographer is about to turn 10, I want to interview him! “Let me get this right. You‘re asking to interview me on my own site?” he asks. “That’s right. And with the site turning 10, now’s the best time to do it” I tell him. So like the annoying kid who got a voice recorder for Christmas, I relentlessly corner him until he has no escape – forcing him to answer my questions....

A Look at How Photographers are Using the Google Pixel 3

My first camera phone was a 2MP Nokia. Never in a million years (actually, 14 years) did I think we would be where we’re at now. But the modern smartphone market brings with it a range of devices that have impeccable cameras built into them. The demand for the best camera and the rise in quality even has Canon and Fujifilm debating about the future of the digital camera world. No matter how you feel about it the quality is evolving, there’s no clearer sign of that than the Google Pixel 3. From insane low light performance to smooth, soft portraits, it’s hard to say why you shouldn’t be taking images with this camera. Could this be in fact, a replacement for every photographer’s main camera? let’s take a look…...

Christophe Audebert Uses Long Exposures to Highlight Geothermal Power

“Nowadays it is critical to save our planet”, Christophe Audebert firmly states as he talks about the impact climate change is having on the world.  Where other photographers choose to document the damaging effects, Christophe, a Parisian based landscape photographer, is highlighting what we can do differently.

The advantages are plenty”. ...

Virginia Hanusik’s ‘A Receding Coast’ Tackles the Tough Topic of Climate Change

Let’s talk about climate change. A polarizing topic for society, but one that continues to come up. Whilst some brush it off as no concern, there are others who are unprepared to allow the conversation to go away – including photographers. Humanitarian photography is no easy task.  Especially when you’re documenting the negative contribution society is having on the environment. Taking nothing away from the portrait, event or editorial, for example, it requires a certain strength to be able to plunge yourself into the sometimes depressing narratives society is faced with. Virginia Hanusik, a photographer whose work concentrates on the relationship between culture and the built environment, has given herself the task of tackling climate change. In her series A Receding Coast, she closely looks at how our architectural practices have led to coastal erosion in South Louisiana....

Selvy Ngantung’s Minimal Long Exposure Landscapes are Haunting

A photograph may be viewed for a second, a minute, maybe two. The person that views it seldom, if ever, is held for the same amount of time it took for the photographer to create the image. For landscape photographer Selvy Ngantung, the more time she puts into her work, the better she feels. “When I’m making my photographs I’m filled with enjoyment,” she says. From planning to walking, to taking several long exposures, she’s always connected to the process “…each and every second I spend creating photographs, I’m putting my creativity and imagination into my work”. And whilst her audience may not spend as long viewing a single image as she does making it, her purpose remains the same; “I craft my work so that the viewers are able to capture the emotions I’m feeling through the images I make”....

Social Media: A Photographer’s Curse and Why I Chose to Break Free

Social media has become such an integral part of a photographer’s journey. I myself had become so immersed in it that I’d spend a large portion of my day on apps like Instagram and Twitter.

Five Fantastic Street Photographers Using Their Smartphones

Smartphone street photography has risen in popularity over the past five years. The cameras are getting crisper and the technology is getting smarter. The best part about them from a street photographers perspective is that they can always carry it around in their pocket – meaning it’s always readily available.

The specs and capabilities are still lacking compared to your normal mirrorless, bridge and DSLR, which means using them isn’t always an easy thing to do. There are street photographers, however, that are doing a mighty fine job when it comes to creating quality smartphone images.

In this article, we look at five of them that are doing great work....

Street Photography: Confrontation and Bad Advice From My Former Self

Several years ago I wrote an article that gave advice about managing confrontation in street photography.  I spent time putting together an action plan, including ways in which you can avoid confrontation altogether. At the time I thought it was gold. I shared it as much as I could, and in fairness, a lot of people thought it was good – I imagine they were as green as I was at the time. Looking back, there was some terrible advice in it. So terrible, in fact, I’ve removed the piece. Let’s take a look at what went wrong and I what I wish I knew then that I know now....

Karen Arango’s Portraits Of First Gen American Girls Highlights The Demand For Them To Grow Up Quickly

Over the decades, America has become home to Latin Americans who have settled in the country. For those that left their nation behind, they have brought new culture – whilst trying to adjust to expectations put on them in the place they now call home. But there’s a new generation coming through. A generation that only knows America as their home, but one that is heavily influenced by Latin American attitudes from their parents.

Jamiya Wilson’s 100 Faces Challenges Social Boundaries

Every day we allow people to walk past us without consideration for who they are. The same places and plenty of faces, yet they still remain strangers. But what if photography was able to bridge the gap, bring us closer and make a stranger a friend?

How To Turn Your Photography Writing Into A Form of Income

Thanks to the internet everyone can get their words down on virtual paper and try to spread their message to the world. Certainly over the past five years the idea of writing from your laptop – and making money from it – has become a very attractive profession, especially to millennials. The term ‘Digital Nomad’ has been born and everyone wants a slice of the pie. The idea of taking great photos and writing articles to go with them has become big business – hence why so many want to get involved. But whilst some believe all you need is an internet connection, a blog account and a strong yoga pose in your avatar, the reality is it takes a lot of sacrifices to start making money from writing about photography.

In this piece I’m going to share my personal journey and the steps you need to take if you’re aiming to earn an income from writing....

Cam Crosland’s Fishing With Dynamite Shows An Empathetic Approach To Flash Street Photography

Cam Crosland is a street photographer based in London. Their work has been described as both poetic and powerful — a description we are in complete agreement with. Through their series Fishing With Dynamite, Cam adopts a gentler, more empathetic approach to flash street photography.

Whilst their identity does not define the calibre of their work, Cam’s path to identifying as non-binary has certainly played its role in the way their work is produced. Just as street photography has played its role in helping Cam on their path of self-exploration.

Tomas Ayuso Shows Why the Honduran Youth Are Fighting for the Right to Grow Old

Travelers come from all over the world to visit Honduras. From the beautiful island of Utila to the picturesque town of Copan, it’s labelled paradise to those who stop by. But for many that live there the narrative couldn’t be more different. Government corruption and painful inequality mean that life for a local is tough.

Should We Embrace Staged Street Photography?

Staged street photography is often given the label of being the stain on the craft. Most people in the scene are busting their ass just to get an authentic, candid frame. Some, however, are bringing a preconceived concept to life and passing it off as something that it isn’t. One of the issues with staged street photography is that is very difficult to prove. It’s always going to be your word against theirs – unless of course, you have proof, but that’s not easy to obtain. But whilst we may agree that we can’t eradicate the fraudulent approach to street photography, is there a possibility we are able to embrace it?...

It’s almost 51 years since the death Martin Luther King Jr. He helped shape the world and was the face of the fight that would spark change in the oppression of the black community and the on-going racial divide.

Is the “Click to Like” Model Harming the Ability to Take Criticism?

By being a writer and photographer I’m automatically searching for the validation of others. Call it creative, attention seeking or the need to be accepted, the measurement of my success is partly dependent on the reaction of others. For my generation, we grew up with a very simplistic approach to giving and receiving feedback – click like, or don’t click at all. However, when people give genuine feedback it can throw me off course. As a result, it’s not always easy to initially digest....
