About

This is where I live and this is Brisbane.

My aim is simply to show selections of the city and its people. This is Brisbane.  Australia, in the 21st century.

You will find a mixture of street scenes, urban landscapes and personal interests.

Black and white is my natural preference but sometimes colour just seems right.  I have a separate site for my colour work - http://brisstreetcolour.wordpress.com

You are welcome to comment, or to just have a look around.

Thanks for visiting.

Jeff

  1. Hello JP!
    My name is Ben Knibb, we met yesterday at Queen Street after you photographed my band,
    I’ve had a look around your site, the photos are stunning!
    Is there any way that I’d be able to see the photos that you took at Queen st during the performance?
    Thank you,
    Ben,

  2. Really enjoyed looking through your street photography…is that a Leica I saw in your hand? You’ve done a brilliant job of capturing Brisbane and all the things that people are too busy to pay attention to…thanks. I’ve try my hand at street photog from time to time and its not so easy with a camera the size of a small bbq…maybe I’ll see you out on the streets sometime soon though… :)

      • I wrongly assume all street photogs are equipped with Leica, I’ll blame Henri Cartier Bresson for that…or maybe that’s because I want one myself :)

      • I don’t blame you for wanting a Leica! And yes, Henri (or his reputation) has a lot to answer for in that regard :). I use a Sigma DP2 which in a lot of respects is comparable to the Leica X1 (but not the M8/M9 series). I think my style is not “strictly” street photography anyway and the Sigma is certainly not the best tool for fast action or even slow action sometimes! But it allows me a lot of freedom and lets me blend into the crowd easier than, as you say, carrying a bbq around! In the end though, what ever camera you are comfortable with is probably the best one. Cheers, Jeff

  3. Hi Jeff, I’m an international student also shooting Brisbane streets often, on a 2nd hand digital camera and a old film camera. I wonder if you like to meet up. I hope I can be a part of the photographic community in Brisbane to exchange ideas.
