me & street photography

I am a hobby photographer and I also like to write … I was on Internet in the beginning so that’s why I have a lot of blogs … curious and love to learn  … In the “beginning” it was HTML and WYSIWYG and now it is wordpress, blogspot and tumblr ….

I am now totally lost in STREET PHOTOGRAPHING – showing the street life of people.

Thinking a lot of what Street Photographing is to me – reading  articles – getting inspired of other street photographers – take part in many SP groups in Internet …. learning …. enjoying …. living …

I shoot (mostly) in Black & White …. and I go with the flow …

To me it is important  …

  • it’s public urban places
  • it’s people in my pictures
  • it’s (for me) unknown people
  • that anyone can be photographed
  • it’s never arranged pictures
  • to not interfere the situation
  • to always show my camera
  • show the life in streets by photographing people
  • to think twice when taking pictures of children
  • to like people but not always the situation
  • to keep political text away from street photos
    (politics has another arena)
  • to give the viewer opportunity for self-interpretation
  • with a spirit to not humiliate or insult
  • to show any kind of streetlife in my photos
  • if not people – at least signs of people

Welcome to my pages!


  1. I concurr with all your requirements for street photography. I think this is what should all street photographers think before heading out in the street. Very well written!!!

  2. Thanks Alexander! I am so glad you agree to this and I also think all Street Photographers should write their own declaration. That’s the least they can do to all their motive models 🙂

  3. A well written about page. I would like to do more street photography. It’s a little complicated, because i don’t feel very comfortable in cities, but I do enjoy street photography. Looking forward to seeing more posts from you.

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words! I want to wish you good luck with your street shooting any where in places people are. Welcome back!
