Tyler Simpson (A Common Thief) Joins Full Frontal (Flash)
Tyler’s a bit of a phenom on Flickr these days, bursting onto the scene with a distinctive style that quickly established “A Common Thief” as a name that street photographers recognized and admired. His use of flash is never presumptive but instead elevates his subjects and contributes to the telling of their simple stories. His precise control of the medium creates beautifully crafted and dynamic statements of a world that’s both surreal and familiar.
He came out of nowhere and all of a sudden he was posting photos on Flickr and got in to some great Flickr groups so it was impossible to miss him. We all discussed it and decided his style was a great fit for the collective. — Johan Jehlbo, Full Frontal (Flash)

Flash street photography is as divisive as it is challenging and not everyone is going to approve. Some feel it’s too invasive while others are drawn to the other-worldy quality that only flash can produce. However you see it, Full Frontal (Flash) has some of the best flash shooters going and it’s great to see them grow their ranks with one of the hottest new flash shooters out there.
Tyler Simpson’s street photography journey has only just begun but becomeing a member of Full Frontal Flash will certainly help sharpen his skills and challenge his vision. Something tells me A Common Thief is a name that we’ll be hearing a lot in the years to come!
