Istiklal Caddesi in Istanbul

  Istiklal Caddesi in Istanbul As a street photographer I absolutely adore pedestrian boulevards when I travel because of the incredible concentration of people.  And Istiklal Caddesi (a.k.a Istiklal Street or Avenue) in Istanbul is now one of my all-time favorite streets.  In addition to the estimated 3 million people who visit the street daily, there […]

Children playing in the street – Istanbul, Turkey

My all-time hero of street photography was Robert Doisneau.  He repeatedly argued that the best street photography occurred on the fringe of Paris and not in the tourist areas.  I’ve taken his words of wisdom to heart and seek out fringe neighborhoods when I travel. In Istanbul last week I visited this “red light district” […]

Superman on top of the Grand Bazaar – Istanbul, Turkey

The famous Grand Bazaar of Istanbul is legendary (and even appeared in the last Bond film).  After doing some shopping, we paid off one of the local merchants to sneak us up to the roof where you have magnificent views of the city.  This one tourist took his Superman t-shirt a little too seriously and […]

Hagia Sophia – Istanbul, Turkey

Istanbul’s streets are filled with vendors of all types including this food vendor who walked back and forth balancing his product on his head near the Hagia Sophia.  I’m not sure how many he sold but tourists were stopping him every 30 seconds to take a photo with him. All of my photography is available […]

Captain Bob – a street portrait

In addition to street photography, I also love doing portraits whether formal, staged, environmental or impromptu street portraits. Last week I attended a great performance by the Gary Campbell Quartet at the Miami Jazz Coop in Coral Gables.  During the show I spotted this character in the audience and knew I had to get a […]

Selfie on the street

This guy was so into getting the perfect selfie.  It was like he was starring in his own fashion photo shoot:  doing various poses; changing which side to shoot; with and without sunglasses; and all in the middle of the street with traffic whirling by.  I’ve always said the best entertainment in any city is […]

“Quality Time” – street shooting in Miami

Yesterday I spent time doing street photography for my upcoming exhibit opening in February at the Miami-Dade Library. I spotted this couple at Starbucks and was amused by their use of technology: 2 cell phones, 1 laptop and 1 tablet… and they were using all 4 simultaneously. Is this what “quality time” has come to […]
