Craig Coverdale is street photographer living in Sydney.  His images detail our daily journey through the city streets of Australia and Asia.    Craig is a Leica Ambassador.   He regularly presents at seminars and industry events on street photography techniques, and for shooting in a fast paced environment using available natural lighting.

The Element series is a study of light as it falls on the built environment via natural and artificial sources.  Laneways, tunnels, and industrial surfaces take on new detail under subtle light and a slower, more detailed inspection. 

A portion of Coverdale's body of work is devoted to documenting and preserving hidden artwork within Australian cities.  In the process giving a new audience and visual context to this concealed  and temporary art.  


"Some things are hidden for all the world until photographed."

"Street photography is a renewable resource. If you dont like what you see wait five minutes or walk a hundred feet."

"Remember, not everything is a picture. A good eye can edit before the shutter opens."
