In the latest Photocombobulate episode, Mason and I talk to the wonderful Valérie Jardin about street photography. She pulls no punches when talking about photographing strangers, and she’s made a career out of helping people capture the world around them with respect, kindness and audacity. In this episode we explore our apprehension around taking photos of strangers and Valerie steps in to offer some of her tips, tricks and even a few secrets. If you want to truly experience a place, even your home town, you need to get out there and make photos of strangers. If you’re like us, that sounds daunting; but with Valerie’s gentle prodding, enthusiastic coaching and inspirational images you’ll leave this episode ready to hit the streets.
