Great blog man! I really like your pictures! Nice to meet you. Ivan
Thank you Ivan. You have an awesome blog, and I really like your pictures as well.
I love your street photography! Especially the b/w portraits of the homeless, it reminds me of campaign I'd seen in Toronto years ago
Thank you, I appreciate it. I was actually thinking about doing a street photography project with the homeless. I’ll probably do it whenever I get a chance.
Late Night Shift
New York, NY | 2014
I went out with some friends a few weeks ago to watch the movie “Guardians of The Galaxy” (great movie by the way.) We ended up catching the last showing and the movie ended at about 2am. My friends took the train but I decided to walk down from 42 st. to 34 st to take some pictures on my way down. I saw this man with his head down, it almost seemed as if he was sleeping. It was 2 am and there was no one around which kind of makes me wonder who buys cell phone cases at this time of night, but I guess he must make some sales.
Can you post a selfie? I want to know if you are a boy or a girl.
I don’t really take much selfie’s. I’ve never been big on the selfie craze.. Lol But here’s a picture I took somewhere in Soho while I was out shooting one night. I’m a guy by the way.
I like your shots. How long have you been into street?
Well, probably a few years but I started doing street photography before I even knew that street photography existed. I had a small point and shoot camera and would take pictures in the street of people because I liked how each picture told a story. It wasn’t till later on that I found out that street photography was actually a genre of it’s own. I bought my first DSLR at the beginning of this year actually, and been doing it as frequently as possible. I think that the biggest obstacle every street photographer faces is shyness or the fear of confrontation with someone. The truth is that most people don’t really care, especially in New York. People will just look at you and keep on walking. Mostly the only people who care are those who have something to hide. I’m taking Sociology in college at the moment and I think that overall it’s helped me a lot. Especially when it comes to that fear of confrontation with people. Nowadays if I see a person who’s interesting or a certain moment which I want to capture then I’ll just take it. I’ll smile if they look at me and maybe even compliment them, and keep on walking.
right ! you have beautiful pics... are you photographer ?
I’m not a professional photographer but I hope to reach that level someday. I’m a self taught photographer, I’ve taught my self photography by going out into the streets and taking pictures whenever possible. That’s how I fell in love with street photography.
You have a beautiful pics!
Thank you, I really appreciate it..
