Group Description

This is a group for mobile street photography. We invite you to publish your images here for inclusion in regular Showcases that we will feature on our main site,

Welcome to our group!

StreetWise is a column on which is dedicated to sharing and highlighting the work created by talented mobile (smartphone) street photographers in the mobile photography community, exploring the unique and fresh perspective that they all bring to this genre.

Each month, a selection of photos will be curated and showcased in a ‘StreetWise’ video.

Criteria for submissions:
Street photography by definition is photography that captures people and places within the public domain. It doesn’t necessarily need to include people, but there should be a suggestion or visual acknowledgement of the human presence. It can also be defined as un-posed, un-staged photography. It often captures, explores or questions contemporary society and the relationships between individuals and their surroundings. Framing and timing are key aspects, with the aim of creating images that capture a decisive or poignant moment.
We believe that it is important to focus on the key aspects of the craft of street photography – composition, timing, juxtaposition, catching that decisive moment – rather than relying on too much apping. We therefore feel that apping should be kept to a minimum - cropping, tweaking exposure, colour, adding a little grain or texture is ok but we would like you to steer away from overly app’ed images that are more art-orientated or painterly.

Group Rules:
1. All submissions must be shot and processed with a mobile device (smartphone).
2. We will not accept images that the admins deem to be 'over apped'.
3. The admins reserve the right to delete any images that they feel are not relevant to the subject matter or the group's criteria.
