Street photography in Scotland

I like street photography. I try to make street photographs – sometimes I succeed, most times I fail.
Some people don’t ‘get’ street photography. In my opinion there is no purer form of photography.
To be a good street photographer you need to be a lot more than just a good photographer. You need to be quick and observant. You need to know what is going to happen before it happens – a sixth sense if you like. You need to have patience and most of all you need a good pair of shoes!

Here’s some recent ones of mine that I like – taken in Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Striped shirts.






Two dogs.


Ripped poster.

    Wonderful pictures throughout.

    I’m curious about what film this series was shot on, and whether it was post-processed. Could you share?

    Thanks very much.

      It was actually shot on my very first digital camera (Fuji X100) and post processed in Lightroom to give the slight colour shift and overexposure look.
