Eyeshot Magazine is one of the leading promoters of contemporary street photography today - complete with website, Instagram and printed publications. One of my shots recently appeared in the Street Fashion printed issue, and now I have been honoured with having a portfolio included on with the website and Instagram feed.
2020 was the second year of the National Geographic Traveller Masterclasses held in London. I was actually a participant in the first year. This year I was truly honoured to be asked to speak (twice) and to be part of a panel discussion. It was a great day with in excess of 200 attendees, and speakers all across the travel photography spectrum. I spoke about the place of street photography within travel photography and shared some of my best tips for Ninja style shooting (!) as well as composition.
