Learning Street Photography


From Henri Cartier-Bresson to Humans of New York, photographers have taken to the streets to make photos and tell stories.

Street photography is growing into one of the more popular genres, but it is not without challenges. New street photographers often find themself asking:

  • What is the best way to get started?
  • What are different approaches to street genre?
  • How do I handle encounters with strangers?
  • What are the legal issues I should know?
  • What are the ethical issues and decisions I might face?

I have been answering most of these questions in my Shutterbug Life podcast and blog for several years. Now I have assembled my bests posts into one free resource. On this Learning Street Photography page, you can work through street photography advice, inspiration and training.
