Robert Edwards from England, intended to pack up his family and stay only two short years in Thailand, but as he put it, “that plan didn’t work, after 20 years we’re still here.” He spoke with us about what it’s like to shoot street photography as a resident of a foreign country instead of a tourist.
Robert did not initially take up street photography, rather he began by taking sports photos. The streets always captured his interest however, and since he now devotes himself mostly to street photography, he considers himself a “born again photographer”.
Robert’s street photos are captivating and he had plenty of good advice to share with those who are new to street photography or just looking to improve. He spoke to us about living in a foreign land, getting street portraits, photo editing and who to please as you shoot on the streets.
Listen in on our interview with Robert for more on street photography in Thailand, and street photography in general.
