Recently, it was our pleasure to speak with Des Byrne, a talented Irish street photographer who picked up photography later in life and ran with it. When Des discovered his talent for shooting the streets, he noticed that an awareness of street photography in Ireland was lacking and decided to take action. Des began giving presentations on street photography at a number of camera clubs and even founded the Irish Street Photography Group. He organizes photowalks and exhibits and even hosts a really cool AirBNB experience called “From the Hip” in Dublin.
With all of that experience, we were excited to speak with Des about how he does it. Some of the things we asked Des were: What goes into organizing a street photography group? How do you set up exhibits and workshops? What do you speak about at camera clubs?
