Street Photography That Stands Out w/ Craig Reilly | WC Ep. 10

In episode ten of our ongoing YouTube series, World Class, Vistek video producer Dale Sood Skypes with British street photographer Craig Reilly.

In our 10th episode Dale speaks with British street photographer Craig Reilly who’s meteoric success is only outpaced by the growth of Street Photography International (SPi), a collective of street photographers he helped build.

SPi hosts millions of impressions monthly on their Instagram account and has a quickly growing base of over 350,000 followers making it one of the largest street photography accounts on Instagram.

Craig shares with us how those results were achieved in under two years, and what makes a good street photograph.
