Next Scheduled Workshop : Glasgow (Date to be confirmed)
As a passionate photographer of people for over 32 years (28 years professionally) and the founder/owner/curator of Two of the most prestigious virtual Street & Social Documentary Photography Galleries in the world, I offer classes and workshops to photographers looking to start out or fine tune their skills in this very challenging genre in the Art of Street Photography.
Workshops shall take place with a very casual and relaxed pace but with an intensive delivery of information, techniques and skill sets to be mastered. Workshops will consist of covering the technical aspects of how to use the camera for this type of photography and the ethos of the genre leading to practical application of walking the streets and applying tricks and tips while I pass one on one to assist throughout.
After about 3-4 hours of pounding the pavement we shall retreat to a coffee shop, load up our favorite 4 images of the day and I shall make constructive and destructive critiques to examine whats great and what could have been executed more effectively. Alternately speak to me about 'one on one' sessions if you prefer a more intensive experience or the option to explore only Black and White street photography.
The total timeline on a workshop would be coffee/tea and about a 30 min talk, lead in and questions acting as a warm up and ice breaker..... 4 hours on the street practical application with me at hand for questions as we go... then 1-2 hour for image selection and critique .
