  2. The Waiting Game

    17 Oct 2016

    Etihad Stadium, Melbourne 2015 “How long do you wait at a particular spot for a shot?” One of the questions I got asked a lot. There is no direct answer to this issue, and it also depends on how hungry you are to get the shot. But there are a…

    12 Sep 2016

    Melbourne, Australia 2015 The lesser you carry, the further you walk When I first started street photography, all I need was my iPhone and Power Bank to charge up my phone. There was no additional lens, a second camera body or a tripod, and travelling light was essential. The lesser…
