This is the story about a Hen Party photographed whilst out on the streets of Brighton. It’s one of the perils facing a Brighton Street Photographer!
As a lone street photographer wandering around Brighton it’s always been in the back of my mind that you’re in a potentially vulnerable situation. It finally came to pass last weekend…….

The perils facing a Brighton Street Photographer
So, these are the perils facing a Brighton Street Photographer. There are potential risks around every corner. All I can say is … keep your wits about you and stay safe folks!
