#822 Photographing the Photographer!


Ottawa photojournalism

David Barbour - Ottawa street photography

In mid July I taught the Urban Compositions Photo Safari on two HOT days.

On my wanderings back to the car at the end of the session I stumbled upon David Barbour – well known veteran photographer in the city. He was shooting some street photography – photojournalistically capturing a musician.

Photographing the Photographer David Barbour

David was busy shooting and I could not resist – I pulled out a camera and lens and started photographing the photographer – hunting the hunter!

I met David many years ago. He still shoots significantly on film and Leica equipment where he can. He’s had a fabulous career (so far) including:

• World Press Award 1986

• Canada Council Grants

• Work for CIDA, and many editorial outlets

• Extensive exhibitions

We connected afterwards and exchanged some fun. Visit David’s website.
