What is Street Shooting?

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

STREET PHOTOGRAPHY is a genre of photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places and does not necessitate the presence of a street or even the urban environment. ‘Street’ simply refers to a place where human activity can be seen, a place to observe and capture social interaction. The subject can even be absent of any people and can be that of object or environment where an object projects a human character or an environment is decidedly human. Framing and timing are key aspects of the craft, with the aim of creating images at a decisive or poignant moment. Alternatively, the street photographer may seek a more prosaic depiction of the scene, as a form of social documentary.

The Juror

Bob Patterson, publisher of Street Photography Magazine developed a love for photography through his fascination with the black and white photos in Life and Look magazines as a child. After a career as an executive in the cable television industry, he founded Street Photography Magazine in 2013.  His mission is to create a digital platform that gives street and documentary photographers the ability to showcase their work to a worldwide audience. As a photographer, Bob practices what he calls “real-life” photography, documenting life on the streets and stories of people in Central Virginia and beyond. He is also a life-long martial artist, avid traveler and curious to a fault.


This exhibit is open internationally to both amateurs and professionals.

The deadline to send digital files for consideration is Monday, March 22, 2021 by midnight PST. There is no limit to the amount of images which can be submitted.
