Too stylized and fashion orientated toward beautiful models to be real street/documentary.

What would be camera settings for Black and white photography?

Nicely done. Thank you.

These are street portraits, not street photography really. Great work though.

That's not street photography. That's environmental fashion portrait photography, using strangers. Nothing candid, no stories in the picture. Not street.

A real street photographer... always clinging to that camera. 👍 I feel naked without my camera. Great video.

This is my dream job 😩😩 I want to focus mainly on street photography but I also wanna photograph the hardships and struggles of everyday life is that makes sense. I also wanna focus on poc and their beauty, that's my main goal is to showcase poc beauty.

Kiddo, hate to be the bearer of bad news, but there are no jobs for "street photographers". Most who get into it do it for the artistry, not for profit. Sure you might be able to make a few print sales here and there, maybe get a gallery to show your work which and if lucky, might be a springboard for pursuing this as a career however in the meantime, you will still have to eat, pay the rent/mortgage, well, take care of yourself. See how long it took Winogrand, Bresson, and others to "make it" as street shooters and these were guys doing it in an era where there was not so much competition, no Mac or PC with the latest Adobe software and when photography was an actual "skill" that took years, not days to master on a Leica M2 and a 36 exposure roll of Tr-X, several hours processing and printing in a dark room and they struggled. Now, everyone with an X-Pro2, D850 or 5DMkIV are a self-proclaimed "street photographers" there is a lot of competition with few buyers, good luck.

kaly be forewarned tho..nobody pays money for street photography. Use it to teach you more about composition, etc so you can move to a genre that will support you financially

great philososphy
Cool Documentary video—I am more confrontational type of personality and just have always gone up to people and asked them and if they so no—just shrug and ask them why not? I can usually persuade them to change their mind, and if not thank them anyway and walk away. :) Subscribing.

Don't believe it. He might have a girl friend...no way he has a Girlfriend.

Great documentary. Really like how it kept the "talking head" shots to a minimum, and kept going with the audio into the other shots that actually showed him at work out on the street. Also, does anyone know what brand of straw hat that is he's wearing?
James Redd Highlights (2 years ago)
Thank You so much. I appreciate You noticing the details! I'm glad You liked it. The hat is made by Brixton according to Will. :)

absolutely brilliant documentary. Only problem I found: It's too short!! lol By that i mean it was interesting and well made and engaging. And Will..such a nice guy with great images. Such a joy to see a photographer who thinks about what he's doing and has insights into the world around him and is interested in people. thank you to all of you..PS The scene with Wil and his girlfriend is lovely..she's such a lovely person..Enjoyed this video VERY much
