The True Definition of a Street Photographer

''The Porch'' 2011, Harlem, NYC.
Ruben Natal-San Miguel
This is the best definition that, I had come across so far to define what a real street photographer truly is:

A good street photographer must be possessed of many talents: an eye for detail, light, and composition; impeccable timing; a populist or humanitarian outlook; and a tireless ability to constantly shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot and never miss a moment. It is hard enough to find these qualities in trained photographers with the benefit of schooling and mentors and a community of fellow artists and aficionados supporting and rewarding their efforts. It is incredibly rare to find it in someone with no formal training and no network of peers.
