Documentary Street Photography
When i'm not photographing at weddings, i'm often out with my camera shooting the streets. Street photography is considered a good practising ground for the documentary-styled wedding photographer. I feel privileged to have attended street courses across the UK with some of the best known documentary wedding photographers in the UK.
A definition was written recently to help people understand what street photography is.
“A street photograph is essentially a snapshot made by a photographer absolutely connected with the energy and the vibrant in the streets, a photographer with particular skills to document daily life scenes in a public place.”
The street Photographer uses a raw fresh approach to photography. Capturing the unposed images of everyday life as it unfolds in front of the photographer. More precisely a kind of documentary photography.
As a documentary wedding photographer, I find its an everyday practice to keep my eyes sharp looking for that unique photo. Even when I don't have a camera with me i'm still taking the images in my mind.
Below is only a small sample of some street images I have captured over the years.
