Josh Coombes is a UK-based hairdresser and when he started to reach out to the homeless in his city and offer them free hair cuts, he started the hashtag #dosomethingfornothing. It wasn’t long before he decided to take this idea to more than just his native city.
The idea is that as the hashtag and online presence grows, others will be inspired to ‘do something for nothing’. Whether that may be to people sleeping rough or basically anyone in need of some love.
He recently collaborated with US-based street photographer and educator Valerie Jardin. They took to the streets of New York City to offer haircuts, compassion and interaction with a community often disregarded in our culture.Read More

What is your name?
Around two months ago, working my way through the back episodes though!
How long have you been shooting and what inspired your interest in photography? I’ve had two stints with photography. Around 20 years ago I did a photography course at the local college, producing my own black & white prints, even made my own developer (Pyro!). Fast forward a few years & photography fell by the wayside & I stopped shooting so much. After using a D90 casually to capture family photos, I’ve had my passion for the subject reignited. So I’m still very much the amateur with loads to learn. Despite the large gap in practice, I never really stopped seeing photographically and it’s this that inspires me. For me photography isn’t just about making the images, it’s far more about how to see. I’m a software architect by trade, but despite shiny gadget-lust it’s the artistic aspect of photography that attracts me.
Do you have a preferred genre or specialty of photography? I’ll cheat & say Travel, which can encompasses street, people, landscape, architectureRead More
What is your name?

When did you begin listening to The Candid Frame?
That’s a tricky question, I checked my blog and I recommended The Candid Frame in May 2009 to my readers, so probably some time before Episode 70. There have been so many inspirational episodes, I would argue that Ibarianex’s work has been vitally important in my development as a photographer. The Candid Frame, and the people on it, give you avenues to explore, artists to investigate and a good kick in the pants to just get on with it and take some photographs.
