A day of street photography in Derby with Bruce Gilden, Magnum

I can’t wait to see the Format Festival in March next year, especially as I spent the day with street photographer Bruce Gilden from Magnum while he was in Derby.

I learn’t a lot from watching him, not about the technical details like his flash settings or what f stop he uses, there is no point; all I would be doing is copying Bruce and not working on my own style, my own voice.

What did come across was his dedication, he knows what he wants, and has been pursuing that relentlessly for years, even though it may not be profitable when compared to other genres of photography!
I can’t wait to see his photographs…

Bruce Gilden’s commission, called Bruce Gilden: Head On, will be on show at the Derby Museum and Art Gallery. Gilden spent seven days in the streets of Derby in early November. His exhibition will be shown alongside a special mini-documentary of the photographer on commission shot by BJP’s news editor Olivier Laurent Read More >>on BJP website

My Boss says we cant afford you or we don’t have a big enough budget!

No Problem, the first thing you need to do is convince your boss of the importance of photography and what it can do for the company.
Map out ideas and ways of using photography over the  upcoming year with the view of how it will help the company but also with the need to increasing the budget.
Look at some of the ideas that you can use here and if you need further help give me a call.
In the meantime get in touch anyway, I live in the real world as opposed to fantasy land and realise things can be tight and I will see what I can do.

Avoiding Mindless Documenting

As a follow on from my previous post here I think it is important to avoid mindless documenting. Although one could argue that by definition all photos are documents, a collection of said photos does not make it a documentary. Documentary Photography has a long history of being narrative in its nature and to inform the viewer.
