Street photography is beautiful and challenging. Why? You can transform real life, real people into art-work.

If we aspire to become like the heroes of the Iliad (Achilles, Hector), certainly courage is desireable.


Street photography improves your life, health, and everything!

1. Walking

To shoot street photography, you gotta walk and leave your house/apartment! Certainly the more you walk, the better your physical and mental health.

STREET WALKS

For example, I treat street photography like ‘street walks‘.

2. Arts creation

Street photography is art (with human beings).

If you desire an artistic outlet, like to walk, like to talk to people and engage real humans, street photo is for you.

3. Do it for yourself, do it for your soul.

4. What is art?

Art is technique. Street photo technique.
