This one day course is suitable for all levels of photographer from complete beginner to advanced and aims to introduce the practice of Street Photography. It is concerned with improving the personal work that all participants are making and increasing the chances of a successful hunt.

In the classroom, the group will talk about optimum camera set ups, how to interact with subjects and legal rights. Participants will look at the work of the masters of street photography and discuss how they got their shots and what lead them to such brilliant subjects. Also covered is looking at how street photographers have reflected their times and reinvigorated its limits so that each participant can too.
More than any other approach street photography allows the opportunity to develop the eye so there will be a substantial practical session followed by a critique of work produced and suggestions for how to keep progressing and improving and ways to iron out problems experienced.

    'The course was great fun and well-balanced. The tutor was a very helpful and easy to approach teacher who encouraged us to believe in our ability to take photographs and never forget to smile when taking pictures out there in the streets as smiling photographers get far in the world of street photography!’
    ★★★★★  Dagmar Gleditzsch

    ‘The Street photography course was excellent. I really enjoyed the introduction putting street photography in a historical context but the wow factor was going out on the streets. It really made me start to look at things in a different way and approach composition differently, particularly use of available light.’
    ★★★★★ Barbara Evans

    ‘Ethusiastic knowledgeable tutor. Eye opening walk around east London with plenty of things to snap. Opened up a whole new method of photography to me.’
    ★★★★★ Richard Kenny

    ‘Really enjoyed the course, good to have most of the day to learn about street photography. Great to go out and put into practice things learnt in the morning and to have a review and to see how other members of the group viewed similar shots or came up with unique images.’
    ★★★★★ Daryl Seyforth

    ‘I really enjoyed the Street Photography course. We spent the morning in the ‘classroom’ learning about street photography, before heading out to see what we could ‘see’. Overall, I learnt some great tips and techniques, the group were really friendly and the guidance was really valuable.’
    ★★★★★ Julie Woodward

    ‘Great tutor, really responsive and engaging and provided good and practical advice. We covered some of the history around sreet photography and also hit the streets with Luke giving a broad range of advice for different “styles” of photography.’
