Geelong Street Photography is a blog highlighting the changes occurring in our city. We are a township that is undergoing a massive transformation.
We lost our identity as an industrial town after a number of key factories shut down and, for many years, the central Geelong district was struggling to attract enough shop tenants. In late 2013, we noticed that there was a strong effort to revitalise this area and inject more creativity. It excited us and, as budding street photographers, we decided to photograph it.
What do we photograph?
We primarily photograph changes in the central Geelong district. We will photograph events, renovations, new artwork: basically anything that intrigues us. We have a strong focus on photographing many of the new changes as part of the Geelong Revitalisation project.
We regularly follow all news about Geelong so we can capture new initiatives while they are being set up. If you have any tips or suggestions we would love to hear them. Email email@example.com
Why are we doing this?
We have both lived in Geelong for our whole lives. We love our city. We started noticing that we were going into the city more frequently, instead of going to Melbourne, to do street photography. Each week there was something different. We felt excited about each new discovery. We would go to events and invite our family members. We wouldn’t rush home after doing our shopping.
We started feeling very proud of our city. We realised that others may be doing the same and decided to chronicle the changes we saw.
Work With Us
Use Our Photos
We are willing to offer our photos to organizations who are either promoting Geelong or are involved in a revitalization project. We believe that this creates a win/win scenario: organizations get images from the community and hopefully we get more projects and events to photograph. This offer doesn’t apply to the media.
We ask that you contact us for permission before using any of our images. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Want us to photograph your event/project?
We love photographing all of the changes but aren’t aware of all of them. Many of our photo subjects are discovered by accident.
If you know of a cool event, artwork or interesting subject then please contact us using the above email address. We try to stay across all changes but some slip past.
Who are the photographers?
Glenn loves experimenting with both black and white and street photography. He has a natural talent, despite his reluctance to admit it, and loves capturing the moments that people normally wouldn’t see. He fits in his photography around his full time work.
Jade is primarily a nature photographer. As the project grew, she would start attending events that Glenn couldn’t attend. She mostly works behind the scenes, maintaining the website and focusing on strategy.
