London based street photography courses for all
We start the morning with a coffee and a chat, focusing on the basic elements to help you understand what makes a great shot, and how to get it. We have around a 45 minute theory based session covering some basic elements including setting up your camera for the streets. We then hit the vibrant streets to put our new found theory into practice.
The vast majority of our time together is spent shooting on the streets, and we can cover anything from 3 - 5 miles in a day. You will be learning by experience with loads of personal, hands-on tuition from your tutor.
The courses are aimed at all levels of ability, and we ensure that our street photography workshops are fun, informative and relaxed. They are sometimes provocative, challenging and always fun. They will stretch your imagination, develop your skills and boost your confidence and knowledge to help you get that shot!
