    This is really great. Anyone know the lens he’s using?

    Never mind, it looks like the 85mm 1.2L.

    I am not sure how this is street photography. He is telling people what to do, where to stand and even what direction to look at. Just because a photograph is taken outside on the street doesn’t qualify it as street photography.

  • Travis Forsyth

    Great video! Thanks for sharing.

  • Andrew Ferguson

    I actually felt a little bit betrayed when that turned out to be an Intel ad.

  • Don

    Absolutely correct. It’s not street photography. He is a fashion photographer and therefore subjects are flattered to be asked. Good for him for making it a success. Certainly less disturbing than a Bruce Gliden type street shooter where subjects feel attacked.

    I feel it “counts” as street photography.  He’s taking photos of people he happens to encounter on the street; it doesn’t appear staged or controlled.
