Street photography has a special trait to it -You stage nothing. So how come when staging nothing good photos are taken?

This 14 minutes clip follows master street photographer (or social documenter) John Free. It almost seems as John creates good subjects out of nowhere. Aside his very keen eye, John is just loaded with confidence and conviction in his ability to create a good photo from any scene.

John takes away any excuses for not taking a photo. Instead of sneaking into his subjects, John, combines high loads of confidence which he hides as being a little nutty and one of warmest people around.

In John’s words, he is “everybody’s friend’s” or a “professional stranger”, and one of his biggest strength is the way he carries himself around, and giving a big emphasis on being a non-threat.

P.S. John does it all on film, so he takes that excuse too…

    I’d love to go on a photowalk with John or attend one of his workshops. He looks to be an interesting guy. I shoot with two film SLRs (one is loaded with B&W, the other color) and a DSLR.
