  • Valérie Jardin is a French photographer, currently residing in the United States. After working as a commercial photographer, she now dedicates her time to educating others. Since 2012, Valérie has taken her camera all over the world teaching students the art of visual storytelling. Paris, New York, Rome, Amsterdam, Melbourne, and San Francisco are just a few of the locations she visits. Apart from teaching others to see photographically, Valérie is a prolific author, a speaker, and a podcast producer of the weekly show Hit The Streets. She has been an official Fujifilm X-Photographer since 2014.


  • Valérie picked Elliott Erwitt (born 1928 in Paris, France) as the PPN inspirational photographer of the month. Elliott is a commercial and documentary/street photographer who was one of the first photographers to be recognized by the commercial as well as the art world for his photography. He is probably best known for his street photography series of dogs but also captured portraits of many famous people. You can check out Elliott’s work on Magnum Photos here:


  • In the main part of the show, Valérie and Marco discuss some essential inspirational tips on how to approach street photography. What is the vision behind street photography, how to prepare for a day out shooting, how weather and light influence the kind of street photography style for the day, and more.

Inspirational Photo Book Pick of the Month:

ANONYMOUS” by Valérie Jardin

Quote from Valérie’s ANONYMOUS website:

“If you are an introvert and the simple thought of getting close to a stranger makes you sweat, or if you live in a country where posting identifiable pictures of people on social media is frowned upon, or simply if getting close to people to photograph them feels too sneaky or obtrusive, know that there are other ways to practice the beautiful genre of street photography without getting close to your subject.

This new book will show you ways to be more incognito on the streets while also preserving the anonymity of your subjects.”
