Several months’ preparatory work came to fruition with this autumn’s Street Photography workshop in Paris. From finding a suitable base to seeking out a varied set of locations, my aim is to pass on what I believe are those aspects of the craft that are teachable and reproducible in real life conditions.
There are probably nearly as many workshops around these days as photographers, but when the chance to visit a nearby capital city I’d never visited before (Brussels) arose at the beginning of October, in the company of Matt Stuart, all tied in with a Street Photography Festival, it was an opportunity too good to pass up.
My over-riding aim was to provide the participants with as much shooting time as possible, in order to maximize their practical experience and their pleasure in enjoying a photographic guided-tour of this wonderful city.
Just over two weeks ago, I returned from a 5 day workshop with husband and wife team Alex Webb & Rebecca Norris Webb in Rome, entitled " Finding Your Vision", organized by RVM Hub.
Following on from the success of last autumn's workshop, a new set of street shooting enthusiasts from local photo clubs, joined me for a spring weekend in Nantes & Saint Nazaire. From the city centre flea-market to the seaside promenade: a variety of environments to capture the imagination & harness our skills.
Had the pleasure of being asked to put together a Street Photography workshop for Loire Atlantique Photo, which represents 24 Photo Clubs throughout the region, totalling some 800 members.
Really satisfied with the way my Weekend Street Photography workshop turned out, held in the fortified Breton coastal town of Saint Malo, on the first weekend of September.
