Capturing The Spirit of Detroit: Video Interview with Brian Day, Street Photographer

The past weekend I had the great pleasure of catching up with Brian Day, a street photographer based in Detroit. I first met Brian Day through a reference by my manager, Neil Ta – and ever since I met Brian (like Neil) I have had a serious bro crush on him.

Not only is he a very talented photographer that explores many genres, but he is also incredibly humble.

Check out the interview I did with him above in which we talk about his early influences in photography, how it is to shoot street photography in detroit, and advice that he gives other street photographers starting off or trying to find their own unique voice in street photography.

I have done several features including Brian, including his “Walkers With the Dawn” series you can see here.

To see my past video interview with him (as well as his images) read on!
