The end of Street Photography?
5th October 2023

Despite the drama in many debates and even in some parts of the video below, I’m not entirely sure this could be the end of Street Photography… But maybe it is? These days, everyone is focused on AI and all that auto-generated images can do to disrupt the industry. But at a much higher level, governments are introducing or updating their privacy laws, tightening them to the point that Street Photography may...

2nd February 2023

I created Collection for all of you who wish to hang award-winning and prestigious photographs on your walls. In these past years, I have been blessed with features at exhibitions, magazine publications and awards. I started taking photos almost 30 years ago and had done jobs in this field. But it’s only four years that I shifted careers and made this a full-time profession. Achieving all this in such a short time...

Hoya Sparkle filters video review youtube
4th July 2022

Remember my Starry Nights short film? No? Well, it’s here to watch if you missed it: https://youtu.be/-1xWKCKgwG4 I mention it because I made that short film using the Hoya Sparkle filters, both 4x and 6x variants. These creative filters from Hoya make for very interesting results. But more importantly, they provide consistency and reliability to every image where you want to add a starburst effect (and maybe some soft diffusion). Something that...

creative advice bubble street photography
26th August 2019

This must be the first creative advice I give in this blog. But I have developed a few techniques to help with my creativity, and it feels fair I share them here. So let’s begin. One that’s always been fruitful is constantly looking away from my “bubble”. In some ways, it resembles the advice to go out of your comfort zone :) Design For example, I attend design conferences not directly related...

warm sunset over West London
21st June 2019

I often get my best results when I follow my gut feelings rather than plan for something. This story is a good testament to that. Since I returned from beautiful Georgia (more on that in a future post), the weather in London has been pretty grim and depressing.

Travel - @fabienb with Stable Diffusion
4th September 2018

And so I’m packing for my month-long travel (longer, actually), and as always, the question is, “What do I bring with me?”. It wasn’t always the case, but now I’m used to travelling light. Sometimes super light. But that’s for a week maximum, while this time I’ll be away for at least a month. I think I’ve been smart in choosing to travel between countries that will have consistent weather all along;...
