Hello I’m Bob Patterson and welcome to street photography magazine. So what’s this all about?
I love photography, street photography in particular. For example when I travel I rarely shoot photos of the sites and spend most of my time photographing the people and life on the streets. This drives my wife crazy.
I’m not very good at it. I want to get better…a lot better. And I am intensely curious. I love to view the work of other photographers and enjoy talking to them about their work and how they create.
I’m on a journey to get to the next level (whatever that is) and I invite you to come along. Street Photography Magazine is a vehicle to pull all of this together in one place where we can all learn and share.
What SPM Is
Bottom line, our mission is to help you get from where you are to where you want to be.
If you’re already shooting on the street we’ll show you how others work and teach you some new tips and tricks. And if you’re new or curious we’ll help you get started.
SPM is here to give photographers worldwide an opportunity to share and exhibit their work. By doing this we’ll all learn how others create.
SPM will show you how other street photographers think, what they see, how they create, how they work and how they post process.
Featured Photographer Interview
Each podcast episode includes an interviews with a featured photographer where they share their experience and discuss their work.
Equipment Reviews and Tips
Street photographers have unique needs and interest when it comes to their equipment. SPM includes gear reviews that address the needs and interests of those shooting on the street.
We’ll have how to sections that include tips and tricks and traps and ways to practice and apply the information to your real work.
As camera phone technology evolves it has become serious tool for street photographers. This rapidly growing area photography has a large group of enthusiasts in an ever-increasing body of knowledge that we will tap into share with you.
Future issues we will feature personal projects from contributors and professional photographers. Plus we will feature the work of photographers who publish online on sites like Flickr, 500px , Instagram, Tumblr and recommendations by readers.
If you’re interested in publishing your work, we encourage you to send us a submission.
What Street Photography Magazine Isn’t
SPM will not be a gear-fest. Equipment is certainly important to all of us and we will do reviews from the perspective of street photographers. However it will not be the central focus of the magazine. There are plenty of great websites that do an excellent job of providing detailed reviews of just about everything and we’ll share links for your reference.
Although our mission is to show the work of street photographers around the world, SPM will not be a highbrow art show. This magazine is for photographers to learn from other photographers. However each issue and this website will include links to galleries, publications and websites of new an interesting work.
Street Photography Magazine will continue to evolve to serve the needs of our readers. So please tell us what you need to help you get to where you want to be.
I encourage you to give Street Photography Magazine a look, contribute if you can and tell your friends.
Thank you for your interest.
