Essex Street Photographer

Jude Photography

Street photography. This is where everything started for me. Picking up my first little Nikon D5300 all due to my love for travelling. I had become too reliant on camera phones to document my travels which is a real shame. Of course, camera phones are brilliant and are great for an all purpose bit of technology. But, it kind of takes away the art of photography (in my opinion anyway).

Travelling all around the world I quickly become obsessed with landscape and street photography. Many times I would leave my wife to happily do her shopping, just so I could wander around and take photos. But it became my favourite hobby and was the main reason (the only reason to be honest) that I became an Essex wedding photographer.

Capturing People Being People

Jude Photography

If it wasn’t for natural, candid wedding photography then I can honestly say I would not be doing this as a job. Traditional, posed wedding photography just is not for me. Directing people doesn’t have anything going for me. I want people to be people and let the photos capture their ‘honest’ personality, not make them feel awkward by instructing them to smile on cue.

Street photography was the eye opener for all of this. Just watching the locals in Italy go about their every day life was so inspiring. Watching New Yorkers play with their dogs in Central Park. I could not wait to go out each day to capture more people and practice my skill.

Essex Street Photographer Conclusion

I just love street photography. It will always be a hobby that will never get boring. The fact it also helps and benefits my wedding photography style makes it even more worth while.
