Wayne Worden, 1949
A life-long resident of Vancouver Wayne has owned cameras since his late teens.
Starting with a Kodak Instamatic and moving up to various 35mm SLRs and DSLRs.
For many years photography didn't extend much beyond travel pics of trips to the U.S., Europe, Asia, etc. taken for the benefit of friends and family.
A combination of early retirement, the advent of digital imagery, and an over-abundance of free time re-kindled an interest in trying to make better images.
Wayne is 'self-taught' with the added (and essential) benefit of a few continuing ed courses and an untold number of online nstructional videos.
Street photography is the day to day driver for Wayne's images. Other re-current subjects include architecture, industrial sites, public transport, public celebrations and musicians i performance. Travel to other cities is always an inspiration.
Influences and inspiration come from the work of all the usual suspects, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Stephen Shore, Saul Leiter, Elliott Erwitt, Martin Parr, etc.
There are many other photographers mentioned less often, Ray K. Metzker, Joel Meyerowitz, Joel Sternfeld, George Tice, Peter Mitchell, Charles Sheeler, Bernd and Hilla Becher, Tom Wood, Fred Herzog, and the list goes on.
Many thanks for taking time to view the images.
80% of success is showing up
