I’m passionate about my street photography. But also try not to be possessive of knowledge or claiming I have enough knowledge. One of the great goals in my life is to constantly learn and to help others. It’s a feel good thing, really.
We claim that street photography is a great discipline for learning more about your own way of taking pictures, of your camera(s) and of others in the urban environment. And – tada – this bit-sized course is totally free. Why don’t you try it too?
Next up of my Street Photography friends is Daniel Eliasson, the man behind “Streetpeople.se”. We’ve done some collaborations, even if I consider him slightly more experienced as a photographer than I am. He’s a fun guy, the perfect company as you browse night life in a larger city…
Daniel and I wrote the original Street photography course at “Daily Bits of”, the version in Swedish. That was a great experience as we tried to pin down the pure basic elements of how to approach photography on the streets. Today there’s also an English version, that I wrote myself out of our mutual work.
Anyway, Daniel is a really good photographer, that’s already have had several workshops and exhibitions. Here are just a few examples of his storytelling.
Botten upp (Bottoms up)
Doften av ditt hår (The scent of your hair)
Ballongpappan och retstickorna (Balloon dad and the rascals)

In his own words: “I try to capture beautiful moments. Snapshots of life and social interactions between people. When I shoot street photos, I always look for the extraordinary. Something that sticks out from the regular. After 15 years, I still chase the perfect photo. I doubt it will ever come, but that’s what drives and motivates me; the hunt for the perfect street photography.”
This simple and inspiring course I first wrote in Swedish with my Street Photography buddy Daniel Eliasson. This English version helps any photographer who likes to take pictures of people. Tips, knowledge and inspiring exercises, all wrapped into a 20 day, less than three minut e-mail course. And of course – it’s free of any charge.
There is also another way of taking the course and that’s here on my site. Just click on the meny at the words “Street photography – un introduction”.
Sometimes I just browse older pics for fun, today more so to look for one to use for the new version of my Street photography course. Found this one, taken at Brick Lane, London, in April a year ago. I like the plain colors and the simple elements. So there you have it.
Now a bit in Swedish, as our street photography course for the moment only can be read in the language of vikings.
But hold out, soon…
Jo. Nu är hela gatufoto-kursen tillgänglig här på fotobloggen. Alla 20 bitarna. Naturligtvis går det fortfarande att göra kursen via Daily Bits of, via din epost. Men hela texten finns även här. Klicka så hittar du den. Eller hitta den via menysystemet ovan; en bit, en sida, en text.
