Welcome to my site. I am William Street, a street photographer from Peterborough, UK.
I have been practising street photography since April 2020; my work explores multiple facets of public life and spaces.
Though I use street photography as a catch-all term for my pictures, as my subjects are diverse and occasionally unconventional. As well as searching the streets of UK cities for engaging candid scenes, I regularly explore more rural locations and incorporate elements of landscape and abstraction into my frames. The way I see it, if I’m on the street, then it’s street photography.
Why William Street?
My real name is William Lobley, and I’m a Deputy Editor at Bauer Media. I adopted William Street to separate my photography work from my writing and freelance career.
I have several ongoing projects on the go. These include documenting small city life, graffiti and streetwear.
My first digital zine, Under Junction 33, was completed in April 2022. A small physical run of this zine is planned for May 2022. You can view the zine here, or drop me an email for a free PDF version.
Gear does not matter – whatever you enjoy using is the best camera for the job. Having said that the gear is still fun, so here’s what I’m using:
Camera: Fujifilm X-T20 | X-T3
Prefered focal lengths: 35mm | 50mm
Editing: Affinity Photo | Adobe Lightroom
Printing: Epson XP-15000
