Course Description

Do you want to find that signature style that you can put your stamp on and be proud to share with the world? Our brand new one day assignment course builds on the foundations of Street Photography and will transport you to a higher and more advanced level.

Delivered over a day, the focus of this course is shooting an assignment and working to a brief.

In the classroom, participants will receive in-depth advice on camera settings such as zone focusing, an introduction to Lightroom for editing and options for gaining recognition and on self publishing.

Outdoors, participants will be working on a photo-series, rather than single images in order to create a more coherent body of work. Focus will also be on improving your street photography through different viewpoints, lighting, and selecting backgrounds.

Whether you're looking to develop your knowledge and skills, or are keen to discover creative ways to respond to photographic briefs, this is an ideal course.

For further information or to book over the phone, please call us at the office on 020 7729 1936.

    ‘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

    ‘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.’
    ★★★★★ Lorenzo Play

    ‘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

    '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

    ‘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

    ‘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
