 I was born in Los Angeles in 1986 and have moved all around the city from Canoga Park to South Central and everything in between. The years of constant movement and commutes on the bus left me with no choice but to be a street photographer. For me shooting on the streets is a re-introduction to the city I have always called home. The act of going out there with a camera creates an entirely different environment and experience around me that is new each time. The ritual of going out to shoot is always the same, I leave home walking and catch a bus and I return the same way. Its a constant journey, you never look at things the same way after you have photographed it. In a sense, it now exists. The city is vast, and my favorite location is anyplace that I have never been to before.

New Contributor, John Kayacan

My name is John Kayacan I am 15 years old and I have been doing photography for a year now. Ever since I started street photography I learned that everyone in Los Angeles has a story to tell. Every photo has a story, and every time I go shooting i try to find a photo that interests me.

New Contributor, Greg Jacobs

Born in Inglewood, CA, currently living in Long Beach, CA.
I love walking the streets and taking pictures. There's an energy out there, especially the kind concentrated in a downtown environment, that I find compelling. It's the beauty found in the hustle and bustle
of city life, in the crazy tango of tourist and local, of the stark contrast of the homeless and the business suits. Even seemingly mundane scenes playing out across the city streets catch my eye.
The simplest way for me to describe my photography is that I like to take pictures of stuff I think looks cool.
