119 - How to create street photography with YouTuber Josh Katz


Street photography is one of the more accessible yet challenging forms of photography. As long as you have a camera, any camera, it’s available to you.

We’ve been seeing it in some form or another for several decades now. But if you want to be good, you have to work at it. You have to decide which approach you want to take and how you will go about creating. Should you engage or not engage people. And how you will deal with them?

Josh Katz has not only thought about all these issues, he has also been sharing and teaching about them on his popular YouTube channel. He has an earnest charm when he teaches, which probably accounts for his popularity. His YouTube channel has 370,000 subscribers — which is almost the same population of my home town, New Orleans.

He has a lot of great insights for us, too.
