The Best Perfectly Timed People Photos Ever

In our last article on the best perfectly timed photos, we focused on The Best Perfectly Timed Animal Photos Ever. This week we will focus on People.  At MyPhotoSchool we are big fans of the perfectly timed photo and the internet is abound with images shared by people who have captured images at just the right moment or from just the right perspective.  So again we chosen our favourites to share with you.

Anyone with a camera, whether it be a smart phone, point-and-click camera, or DSLR can  capture such a moment – whether it’s staged or spontaneous. If you’ve ever captured such a photo, share it with us.

Geoff Harris

I am a photography journalist and photographer and currently work as the Deputy Editor of Amateur Photographer (AP) the oldest weekly photographic magazine in the world. Before that I served as the editor of Digital Camera, Britain's best-selling photography magazine, for five years. During my time as editor it became the UK's top selling photo monthly and won Print Publication of the Year at the 2013 British Media Awards. As well as being lucky enough to get paid to write about photography, I've been fortunate to interview some of the greatest photographers in the world, including Elliott Erwitt, Don McCullin, Martin Parr, Terry O'Neill, Steve McCurry and the late Mary Ellen Mark. This has been a wonderful learning experience and very influential on my photography. Beyond writing, I am a professional portrait, travel and documentary photographer, and reached the finals of the 2016 Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition. I am a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society and hope to take my Associateship whenever I can find the time.
