Watch a Photographer Shoot 7 Urban Portraits in a 24hr Photo Challenge

We recently challenged photographer Steven John Irby (AKA Steve Sweatpants) to step outside his comfort zone. Irby usually shoots candid street photos and is the mastermind behind Street Dreams Mag, but we tasked him with shooting 7 creative urban portraits of one model in the city of Barcelona.

In addition to focusing on the model, we wanted Steven to connect with the city of Barcelona through this challenge. The 8-minute video shows how Irby fared.

Here are the 7 portraits Irby ended up with (watch the video above to see how they were made):

Many thanks to Irby for participating in this challenge. You can find more of his work on Instagram and via Street Dreams Mag.

P.S. We previously challenged photographer Nate Luebbe to shoot 7 creative travel photos in Norway in 24 hours.

A big thanks to the Sony Alpha Collective for sponsoring this challenge.
