New York City – Street Photography

As I mentioned in the previous post about shooting food photography in Manhattan, I’d like to introduce a bit more of what I do when the surf isn’t up. I know my regular subscribers here are used to seeing surf photography, as that was the original purpose of starting The New Surf dot com. Since then my art has morphed into so much more than “surf shots.” Jersey doesn’t always have swell worth sharing and airfare to an exotic location doesn’t always include world class waves. I hope you can appreciate me sharing my personal work mixed in with what I’m shooting to pay the bills. Surf photographers can be one trick ponies; I would like to show that we’re not all that way. It may be a very important time in photography’s history to showcase your specialization or niche in the field, but I’m banking on my viewer’s interest in just plain old seeing. I’m living my life through the viewfinder and from the start I’ve wanted nothing more than to share the moments I’ve experienced. It’s time for me to get back to that.

So that being said, I would like to introduce some street photography. It’s often hard to share work that doesn’t feel complete or work that isn’t the best there is to see, anywhere. Or even quick snapshots like the images below. What I mean is that I grappled with the idea of showing this street stuff but have held back for so long because it’s not on par with the Lee Friedlander‘s, Bruce Davidson’s, the Vivian Maier’s or the Saul Leiter’s of the world. I’ve decided that it’s important to share my work, because images never seen are never felt. What you see below are digital photographs and they feel a certain way. I’m shooting some film also and those images feel more raw and a bit more off the cuff. I have a few projects in the works exclusively shot on Velvia and I’m excited to bring those frames to light when the time is right. For now I’d like to start with digital pixels, pretty scenes, pretty people and nice lighting in the vicinities of Madison Ave, Central Park and Penn Station. Because that’s a safe place to start 😉

Please enjoy, I hope you like what I’ll be sharing in the next few months.

About Ryan Struck

I am a self-taught Brooklyn based photographer. Earning a BA in History allowed me to investigate the things that have occurred in the world of which I knew nothing about. In that same spirit, photography allows me to be curious about the world and what surrounds us. I enjoy saving poignant moments through a visual medium, documenting lifestyle often fulfills this need quite nicely. I love what I do. When not at home shooting I can be found traveling in search of surf and inspiring natural lighting. My desire to capture images that help viewers imagine the instant the shutter clicked fuels my passion to combine beautiful light, people and places.

    Your images are bathed in light an color and you did one thing which I like very much. You controlled the DOF perfectly. I truly like theses images. Keep it up.

    On another matter… if you ever want to take a break from the Jersey swell you can always come and visit me, you can surf the “Cannon of Nazaré” and I will take pictures from a distance. 🙂

    Take a look

    • Thank you for dropping by, I love your blog. I just clicked follow, so excited to read along and see what you’re cooking! As to surfing Nazare, I’ll leave that up to the mad men, but I would love to see it that big!
