The Essence Of Street Photography: Be A Walker

The Essence Of Street Photography: Be A Walker

Don't be just a photographer, be a walker.
Indulge in the joy of walking in the world and with the world.

Before I became a street photographer, I had been a walker. And I still am. Walking is a form of meditation, and loving your walks is an indispensable part of street photography.

Walking is healing. It clears your head, it lets you breathe more deeply, it allows your thoughts to flow with ease.

Walking is inspiring. It connects you to the place and to the people. It exposes you to new angles, new light, new emotions.

Walking is presence. When you walk the streets, you're in a blissful state of flow. This very moment is all you have. This is the moment to make your art.

I walk daily. Not just in the cities of the world, but also in my own piece of paradise, with my dog. And always with my camera. I witness life moment by moment, while walking.

I walk when I'm happy. I walk when I'm anxious. Walking dissipates my worries and all is well again.

Don't be just a photographer, be a walker. Indulge in the joy of walking in the world and with the world. Feel every step, and give thanks for the wonderful gift of a healthy body and the ability to move around freely and show life through your lens.

Your best work happens when you walk. Continue on your path.
