WHY CHOOSE US FOR YOUR STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP?

From free photo-walks to online classes, there are hundreds of photographers offering street photography workshops. So, why choose ours?

 

Well, we think we are pretty unique in the street workshop marketplace.

TUTORS THAT WALK THE WALK

Jeff and I shoot street photography as part of our livelihood. We are passionate about what we do and spend many, many days walking the streets, taking pictures and honing our craft. We have taught photographers of all levels and backgrounds, and many come back year after year.

 

We have two different styles; Jeff is often focused on light and composition, whereas I like to look for humour and character. With us, you can experience two ways of looking at the world. Not many workshops can offer that.

SMALL GROUP TUITION AS STANDARD

We don't do the big group thing. It's a nightmare for street photography. Not only do the big groups attract a lot of attention on the street, but it is also impossible to give photographers the tuition they need.

In our experience, the best number for us is just TWO delegates per tutor. That's pretty much individual tuition. As there are two of us, each workshop is open to FOUR photographers. We swap groups halfway through the day so that you get to work with both of us.

 

Everyone is welcome. It doesn't matter if you are a keen hobbyist or a professional photographer. Street photography should be exciting and enjoyable, and everyone should be able to practice it regardless of ability or experience. Our small group policy ensures that everyone has as much tuition as needed, and at a level which they are comfortable with.

A FEMALE STREET PHOTOGRAPHER

A lot of our attendees are female, and my experience and perspective from shooting street is invaluable to them. The guys can also learn a lot from my approach, as she works in such a unique way.
