Can you believe it’s November already? It seems like summer just started and now we’re heading back into winter…at least up here in the norther hemisphere. First I’d like to give a plug to our Facebook group called the The Street Photography Community. It’s a small but mighty and very active group of highly motivated street photographers who are there to help each other in all areas of street photography.

It’s really The hero of our story is Andy Hann, a creative director with Sony Studios in the Los Angeles area. Andy decided one day that he wanted to create a photo project about the people who frequent Hollywood Boulevard.

This is a special edition of the podcast all about the upcoming Miami Street Photography Festival coming soon in December. I’m writing this on Friday, September 14 as hurricane Florence is just making landfall in North Carolina. Earlier this week it looked like we were going to be overtaken by insanely heavy rain here in Central Virginia, so we scrambled to finish the magazine early…just in case we didn’t have any power to publish on Saturday. Fortunately for us, the storm turned south and
I'm finally settling in from our epic move to beautiful Central Virginia. A few times I was beginning to feel like Moses, but things are beginning to get back to normal. Except for the hurricane of course. That's something I never had to think about in the great white north. September Issue of SPM scheduled to publish on Saturday, September 15 Last month we switched up our publishing schedule to the 15th of each month. It seems to have been well received by everyone. This month our very own
It’s been a few weeks since our last podcast and that’s because my schedule has been absolutely crazy. Or preparing to move out of state and just a few weeks and I didn’t realize how disruptive this whole process would be. But once we settle into our new home thing should really settle down and will be able to get back on a regular schedule. By the way we typically publish the podcast twice a month and I plan to get back to that after my move. So thank you for your patience. Street Photography
In case you didn’t know it, the June issue of Street Photography Magazine issue is out…in fact we released it a little early this month due to our travel schedules. Ashley was in LA with her husband enjoying the sites and improving her Vietnamese skills. She has a natural affinity for languages and I’m sure she’ll have it mastered in no time. Me, I’ve been all over the place, Charlottesville, Myrtle Beach, Kelley’s Island in the middle of Lake Erie and Philadelphia. Now I’m back on
Over the past few decades the downtowns of small-town America, which were once always busy, are all but extinct. First came the big box stores, then category killers like Best Buy and Toys “R” Us, and now Amazon sweeping them aside. But all these phenomenon resulted in. But all these phenomenon combined with our need to have lower prices resulted in the demise of small retailers and small downtowns. I’ve seen it myself in my own home town and I seen it in small towns throughout the country,
Most photographers I know have a need to be recognized for their work. And the most frequent question I hear is "how do I publish a book?" Our guest today is Niko J. Kallianiotis, a native of Greece, who has lived and worked in Scranton, Pennsylvania for many years. This week he will be releasing his first book, a monograph, titled America in a Trance. It chronicles the people and places throughout the state of Pennsylvania. This subject is near and dear to my heart because I grew up in
The April issue marked the 5th anniversary of Street Photography Magazine. What began as the test of a new publishing technology grew into an amazing community of passionate photographers of all nationalities and skill levels. It has been an amazing journey and I have you to thank for it. I also have to give a big shout out to our editor Ashley Hunsberger who has done a tremendous job finding new and diverse articles and keeping me on track. We wouldn't have made it this far without her.
