About Uncommon Photographers
I started this site in 2004 when I found that some of my photos sometimes included other photographers, sometimes, in the most uncompromising positions to capture that perfect image.

Back in the day, it was a novelty to find photographers photographing in the streets and it was always a joy to meet others of the same kind and photographing them and posting the photographs here.

Nowadays, with the popularity of digital photography and better phone cams, street photographers are a dime a dozen and almost invariably now, you can’t avoid including them in your photos especially in popular areas. In fact, now the game is … try to avoid including photographers photographing in your shots!
