Downtown Vibe

Four years ago I thought I'd get out of my comfort zone as a photographer and hit the streets downtown to photograph the life there. Capture the human experience. It would be something new for me, over the years I had done wedding, corporate and landscape photography but I decided I wanted to do something different.

One focus of my trips to Water St in downtown St John's Newfoundland is to photograph the buskers. This is also a challenge technically and creatively because I usually have only a few minutes to get the shot and the lighting, composition, background and character of the photo are important to me. That's a lot to consider in a very short time with no prior planning. But I've done my best and learned a lot!

Here are some of the images I've created for this portfolio to date, hope you like them.
