So great to chat to the fab Matt Badenoch this week! As well as being one of the UK’s best documentary wedding photographers, Matt is also a brilliant street photographer, and earlier this year launched Street With Matt, teaching his own street photography workshops all over the world. We talk about that on the episode today, along with lots of other things, including:

  • how street photography can improve your wedding work in so many ways,
  • why slowing down can make such a difference,
  • being married to a fellow wedding photographer (and how they chose their own wedding tog),
  • how to improve your Dobble skills,
  • the story behind one of his specific Reportage Awards,
  • tips on capturing proposals,
  • why a feature on his ‘About me’ page can lead to conversation,
  • why he doesn’t ‘hide’ on the street, and the importance of smiling,
  • and so much more…

The street photography books/resources Matt mentioned on the episode are:

Street Photography Now – Sophie Howarth & Stephen McLaren
Think Like a Street Photographer – Matt Stuart
The Suffering of Light – Alex Webb
Bump Books (website that sells the zines)
