When we're talking Urban Portraits, we're not referring to street photography per se, but something altogether different – these are planned, posed and less about the candidness you'd expect from street photography. Being in the city means endless possibilities for backdrops and ideas which can create some really dynamic and imaginative portraits that you can only find on the streets. With different cities of different ages means the styling of architecture and backgrounds can really vary and the quality of light too. Some more modern cities with many office and corporate buildings will offer a totally different feel to those with some older styles and streets – this isn't just buildings themselves but other small details like lampposts, signs and even things like street art.
