There are many parallels between street photography and wedding photography; observing people and their interaction with not only each other but the world around them are key elements to both. Whilst I am fortunate enough to be granted creative license by the couples who commission me to document their weddings, ultimately I am shooting for them, and with certain time constraints placed upon me. Street photography allows me to use the same creative thought process I use in my day job, but with no time constraints and no brief.
Shooting with The 8 Street was an immersive and exhilarating experience; their wealth of talent, sheer enthusiasm and willingness to share made the Istanbul trip such an enjoyable experience. Walking the streets alone or in the company of others, camera in hand, never knowing what is just around the corner- literally and metaphorically – is what makes street photography so absorbing and the perfect counterbalance to wedding photography.
