Joe Houghton,'My journey in Street Photography'


Bishopthorpe Camera Club is pleased to host Joe Houghton from Dublin via zoom on Tuesday 8th September.


Dublin-based photographer Joe Houghton takes us on a walk through his personal journey discovering street photography, discussing his craft, kit and influences, and the creation of his book ‘Streets of Dublin’, a project he has been working on since the beginning of 2018. Joe finds capturing the people and scenes around this ancient yet vibrant city is a constant source of inspiration.  

Joe has enjoyed photography since his early teens, but only really became serious about it with the rise of digital cameras. Between 2006 & 2017 he provided Nikon with all their Irish training for customers and dealers, training literally thousands of camera owners at all levels in everything from basic camera techniques through to professional level photography in many genres. Joe is a member of the Palmerstown Camera Club in Ireland, Royal Photographic Society in the UK and the Photographic Society of South Africa, and is a regular member and workshop provider in the Hibiscus Coast Photographic Society in KwaZulu-Natal.  


Joe’s work has featured in many international as well as Irish publications, and by the Royal Photographic Society and the Photographic Society of South Africa.  He is also a Getty images contributor and an Adobe Certified Expert in Lightroom.  When he doesn’t have a camera in his hand, Joe lectures at UCD Smurfit, Ireland’s top business school, where he has directed the Masters in Project Management programmes since 2008.
