I’ve been so lucky with my guest on Live and Uncut.
Meeting and talking with my guests on ‘Live and Uncut’ over these last weeks has been for me an awesome experience. I have been so fortunate to speak to photographers, presenters and bloggers who all show one thing, complete passion in their art.
Meet Spryos. The host of StreetHunters who in my opinion has found the right ingredients to present a show and teach photographers how to go about street photography.
The style of his videos is completely natural. Using his Sony cam to record his street hunting, in conjunction with a camera, has been done before but not, in my opinion with such an educated commentary. Notice I say camera and I don’t specify whether its digital or film. Spyros has started a revolution in an appreciation of film cameras especially the Yashica Electro 35 version. (Yes thank you Spyros I bought one as well!) By doing this he has merged the two styles of street photographers, those that appreciate the digital and those that love/prefer film, into a video that has become a ‘must watch’ series for anyone interested in street photography.
I didn’t say this in the show but whilst he walks around his home village/town in Crete, I found my self saying click there’s an image click theres another as Spyros pointed the camera to think about a shot. I’m not saying he missed a shot but it goes to show his selection of the image. He just doesn’t snap away!
In Live and Uncut we took some time to talk through just a few of his images that I had added to my Pinterest collection and I found it of great value to hear his commentary on where the image was taken, why he took it and sometimes. what was going on behind!
For the street photographer StreetHunters is a must watch (links below) but what comes across more and more that I watch them…. PURE PASSION…
Until next time – leave your camera bag at home…
