Bangkok STREET-PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP Jan. 03-05 2019

If you share the same passion with me or even if you are new to this fabulous world of hunting precious moments on the streets, you have now the opportunity to join one of my workshops and learn directly from me.

I’ve been to Bangkok a couple of times and it’s one of my favorite places in Asia. The people are very kind and it’s a beautiful place for shooting street photography. On my last trip there I came across China Town which is a very interesting place to shoot in, especially after sunset when all the neon signs are lit up. There you will find tons of people and plenty of opportunities to dive in and have a blast shooting.

In this workshop, I want to help you to take your skills to the next level. First, we will have a look at your portfolio to get an idea what level you are currently at and together we will determine which areas you can approve on. To address these sticking points I will give you specific assignments that you can work on during the workshop.

„Luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity“

You might have heard about this famous quote from the Roman philosopher Seneca and it still is true to street photography. And my goal is that after attending the workshop you find luck everywhere you go. 😉

We will talk about gear and I will give you practical tips for settings you can use to get the best results possible and to always be ready. This also includes how to achieve spot on focus as quick as possible which is something a lot of street photographers struggle with.

Besides technical tips, I will teach you how to approach strangers in the streets and how to get close to people without being held back by your own „approach anxiety“.

Workshop Schedule:

  • Friday (10am-11pm)

On the first day, we will kick off the workshop with a quick introduction round followed by the portfolio reviews. After that, we will have lunch and we’ll have the first lesson about settings and all the stuff you need to know for the following days. Later in the afternoon we will go out and shoot together. After sunset, we will be shooting in China Town.

  • Saturday (10am-11pm)

We are meeting up at 10 am and we are going to have a first shooting session and after lunch, we will continue shooting until we are running out of daylight. After sunset, we will continue shooting in China Town. We can have a late dinner together and if you are still motivated enough we can have a chat about whatever comes to mind. 🙂
