gusradford asked: How are you going? I really like the photos you've been posting. Hey I was wondering how you'd suggest getting in to the kind of photography you're doing. I'm starting out in photography (very much a beginner) and have always been interested in getting in to getting around to see Adelaide at night and the kinds of places you're posting photos of, although I'm not overly confident in getting out there at this stage. Any suggestions?

Heya, not bad thanks!

Thanks for the compliment. In terms of getting into this sort of photography, there’s really only one way - get out start hunting! I don’t mean that to sound facetious or anything; it really is that simple. Most of what I shoot are places that are overlooked by the general public. Start with lanes and alleys in the city if that’s what your after; you’ll be surprised at the places you stumble upon.

If there are specific sites that take your fancy, go and scope them out. Hit up the owners/managers and ask if they can give you access. Or, try your luck on an exterior door and have a quick peek in case it’s wide open (you’d be surprised).

If you’re not confident to try your luck, I’d recommend starting by just going for late night drives through the city and keep your eyes peeled for possible locations. Play it smart and safe, and you’ll find some gems that you can spend time practicing on.

Good luck! Let me know if you need more help.
