The Street Photography Wedding Photographer in Wallington

As people may know by now, my personal street photography is very important to me.  Not just as a creative outlet but also in my approach as a documentary wedding photographer.  It’s why I have on occasion been dubbed the “street photography wedding photographer.” Urban Street Diving So I’m delighted to have had some of my street photography featured on the Urban Street Diving (USD) website.  It was also nice to have been interviewed as part of the article.  Andreas, the guy behind USD had asked me a couple of time if I’d do a contribution for the website.  The idea being to do a very short and brisk shoot in a single location.

At the time I had been toying with starting some kind of street photography project based on the I Heart London t-shirts.  Now to be honest, the project didn’t really get anywhere – after all there’s only so many times street photography of people in the same t-shirts remains interesting!
