A Photography Lesson From Noted Street Photographer John Free

John Free, for those that don't know, is considered one of the great street photographers of our time. His ability to capture the human spirit in a split second is uncanny. Here is a 10 minute video of a private lesson that was given to Ted Forbes of The Art Of Photography. It is full of helpful advice and inspirational lines for photographers of any genre.

John Free has a very vibrant personality which makes him a natural story teller. This is evident in the work that he produces but in this video we can see how his mind is at work while capturing the images he is known for. It is a wonderful peek into the thought process of one of the greats and will surely inspire you to at least give street photography a try if you have not already.

This is fantastic. I rarely see anyone teaching photography in a way that really resonates with my view on art.
