Street Photography with the iPhone, Notes from the Apple Store Workshop


Thanks to those of you who popped in for last night’s Street Photography with the iPhone session at the Covent Garden Apple Store. It was a lot of fun, and your photos were great. A massive thanks to Clare, David and the rest of Apple’s events staff for the attention to detail, the friendliness and especially for the opportunity to share my love of photography with such a keen audience.

Please keep in touch. Some of your shots really impressed, and I’d love to follow your work. If you have any questions, need a photographer or would like some camera advice, feel free to drop me a line.

The basic outline of my presentation

  • Practice makes perfect
  • Shoot from the hip
  • See what happens
  • Be discreet
  • Be polite
  • Respect personal boundaries
  • No means no
  • Be patient but be quick

    Hi Chris, thanks for the great advice at this event and also at the London Bloggers Meetup on Tuesday. It was great to learn so much about street photography from you. I’ve started taking photos with my iPhone and have set up a tumblr blog too ( to sit alongside my normal blog. My photos aren’t as good as some of the ones at the event but hopefully I’ll get better with practice! Thanks again!

    Thank you so much! It was really cool meeting you (twice!). Let me know if you’d like to go on a photo safari or something similar.

    Anyway, keep me posted. I just started following your Tumblr.

    Have fun,
