I love street photography. I like to capture real moments as they happen on the fly; taking everyday mundane moments and turning them into cinematic movie scenes. I like the challenge it presents and not knowing what I'll get or who I'll meet in the process.
From time to time I'll take the odd photo of a car or a building.
I don't feel like renewing my flickr pro, so if you want to see more than 200 of my photos, check out this flickr group for the rest...
If I BLOCK you, it's for one of the following reasons:
- You have a empty flickr account with thousands of Favs/Contacts (flickr is a photo SHARING community)
- You have just mass spammed a dozen or so of my photos with generic comments using some utility.
- You posted some group icon spam or seizure inducing award GIFs as a comment.
- You went and Faved a ton of girl photos on my photostream, creep elsewhere please!
- You have a creepy and questionable photostream of young girls taken on the streets with 400mm to 500mm lenses. Using a camera 8-11 frames per second on a single girl does not make you a street photographer, it makes you a street perv!
Tools I use to capture light...
Canon EOS 40D
Canon EF 35mm f/1.4 L USM
Canon EF 135mm f/2 L USM
Canon EF 70-200mm f/4 L USM
Asahi 50mm f/1.4 Super-Multi-Coated TAKUMAR
Nikon FE (Black)
Nikon FM2n (Chrome)
Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 AI
Nikon 50mm f/1.8 Series E
Shoot it wide open, shoot it quite often.
Please don't spam my stream with flashy/animated gif "awards" and copy/paste group icons/logos as comments.
If there is something that you like or dislike about my work, feel free to leave a comment/opinion.
Do NOT use any of my photos without my written consent!

James Yeung says:
"Dom is one of the best street photographers around. He has his own style which is easily recognisable. Maybe in years' time, we will all call that the "Dom Cruz's style of street photography".
Putting his images together will give you a movie. All of Dom's works are very cinematic yet the images are so clear and crisp. Think of movie-stills from Blu-ray DVDs - that's what Dom's works are about. It is a pleasure looking at his photostream!"
