In today’s conversation, I’m joined by the Justin Ide, Street Photography Magazine’s featured photographer for the November 2023 issue. His feature story with a samples from a recent project will go live Sunday, November 5 at 10:00 AM EST in the magazine.
With an impressive career as a photojournalist, Justin has captured powerful moments and shared stories that matter. From his early days in West Virginia, where he honed his skills by chasing down news stories, to his time as a staff photographer for the Boston Herald, Justin’s unique style shines through.
After his time in the newsroom, he took on the role of Director of Photography at Harvard University, where he continued to tell stories through his lens. Always eager to learn and grow, Justin emphasizes the importance of constantly seeking inspiration and knowledge, no matter where it may come from.
He believes that everyone has a unique story to tell, and through his camera, he captures the essence of individuals and the world around them. Whether it’s the bravery of firefighters or the hard work of farmers, Justin’s images evoke emotion and shed light on their untold stories.
Join Justin and I as he discusses his adventures, from his early days with a camera in hand to his current projects in Charlottesville, Virginia. He’ll share the lessons he’s learned along the way, including the importance of staying curious, finding stories that ignite your passion, and breaking the ice with subjects to create connections.
