Ok, I don't think too much of his personality ( ) and nor have I liked his blog for quite some time now...but I do love the way he photographs Sydney. He really does capture the strikingly bright, clear, strong light here.

I heard he's going to be in the Sass and Bide store today - around 4-5, Oxford St, Paddington. I may go, and I'll report back

I met him recently-one phrase comes to mind.
Small man syndrome. He was like an angry little gnome!

He wanted to take my picture, I politely said that I was flattered but I am increadibly shy and would prefer not to have my picture taken and he was so rude to me. My husband nearly hit him!!!

We could not ask for better confirmation of our theories re his outsize ego

"Angry little gnome"

Really though how rude of him to say that to you. I cannot wait until his 15 seconds are up.

What I find interesting is that there can be a real purity to street photography, the anonymity of being an interesting but nameless face in the crowd. But that has been spoiled by people like Scott and Garance who have obvious high fashion aspirations and all of a sudden it becomes status like to be on their sites because they are publishing a book, or working for Vogue or styling the latest campaign for whoever.....
The magic is lost for me and meeting him confirmed this. The photo is not about the subject, its about him.

It's interesting to me when he photographs homeless people or like a few weeks ago, he and Garance photographed people at a rodeo, like it's an attempt at being 'down to earth' and 'real.' It seems like a very calculated move to pat themselves on the back.

This thread is one of my favorites, I want more close encounter stories.

I couldn't have said it better!
it's so true for Scott (Garance's site has always been about her and she knows imo how to balance it so no problem with her's)
