The Street Shooters of the Month feature has been going strong in Street Photography Magazine since our second issue, which was published in June of 2013. Our setup was a little different in those first few issues, but these days we get heaps of submissions through our website each month. So many of them come from such talented street photographers that it is often hard to choose which ones to publish.
Speaking of difficult decisions, choosing our favorite street shooters images from 2018 was no easy task either. To make things a little easier, we came up with a few specific categories to guide our selection. They are: street portraits, storytelling, timing and minimalist. You can see our selections below, and you can listen in to our chat by clicking on the audio player if you would like to know why we chose the images we did.
If you would like to submit an image to be considered for the Street Shooters of the Month feature, then make sure your register as a user here. Once you’re registered, you can click on Submissions > Photo Submission Form from the homepage to submit single images. Please upload each image at only 1600 pixels wide and 72 dpi.
A big round of applause for all of this year’s favorites and a huge thanks to everyone who has submitted so far. We love seeing your work and sharing it with our community.
Best Street Shooters of the Month 2018
Listerine man by Carmine Groe
This is a photo of a stranger and homeless man I met on the streets of Toronto one evening. His name is Howard Johnson the 4th. I stopped to talk to him, learned that he drank Listerine and so, was referred to as Listerine man by his friends. I made photos of him and brought him prints a week later.

Untitled by Hal Padgett
A family down on there luck found cheap, temporary lodging at this motel just south of Jasper, Florida. I made a conscious decision to give the kids their space, but they surrendered to instinct and swarmed me like moths to a flame. The mother emerged from a door and was not as enthusiastic.
