Street photographers laugh at how they approach strangers
A new TikTok video trend sees users making fun of street photographers and the way they approach people to pose for photos.
Street photography has gained popularity on TikTok. San Francisco-based photographer Alex Stemplewski has become a star for his pictures of strangers on the street which he claims to make “famous” with his The portraits.

In these TikTok videos, street photographers are often filmed approaching people on the street. The photographers are seen interacting, sometimes awkwardly, with strangers as they compliment them and convince them to let them take their portrait. While the end of the TikTok video shows the final impressive portraits from the photo shoot.
In a new video trend, TikTok users are now mocking the way street photographers approach and persuade strangers to pose for their images – often to hilarious effects.

On TikTok, the #streetphotographer trend sees users making funny videos in which they pretend to be a street photographer introducing themselves to a stranger. They then post comically terrible portrayals of the shoot and sync it to a favorite sound widely used by photographers on the platform.

The videos poke fun at how street photographers often interrupt a person while they are busy Where shopping. Satirical clips also ridicule the way photographers usually praise their style or outfit in order to get them to agree to be photographed.

Another social media trend has seen Gen Z users poking fun at the “revealing” way millennials are filming videos. Young TikTok users have spoken out about how millennials pause briefly before starting to shoot a video to make sure the camera is actually recording. This trait called the “millennial break” is an attribute that is noticeably absent when Gen Z shoots videos.
