Shoot what you enjoy. Think about what’s in the shot, not just the subject. What do you want the image to say, or what do you want the viewer to feel Slow down (Hipstamatic is great for this) Let the image marinate. This was a tip I heard from one of my favorite street photographer Rinzi Ruiz. Just let it sit for a while, I have so many that I would have normally posted straight away. After leaving them for a while I have realized that they are not very good or they don’t say what I wanted. It’s not to say I haven’t posted bad images but I’m probably posting less bad images as a result of this tip.’

The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art.
