Documentary Photography – You Only Need One Shot

In this video, I’ll be telling you about a recent street photography shoot that wasn’t going well, but, how at the last minute, I got one great shot. I’ll also be showing you some shots from my latest documentary project along the way. The moral of the story is even if you spend hours on a shoot and it isn’t going well, you only need that one great photo to make it all worth it.

The shoot was for an upcoming documentary street photography exhibition on Southend-on-Sea, in England. My work is going to be featured alongside Josef Koudelka’s photos of the same place in the 70’s. Keep in tuned on this channel to see more of the shots for this exhibition.
