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.
Los Angeles is not only a hotspot for tourism it is also an excellent place for street photography. Join me for this 3-day workshop where we explore the interesting spots in Los Angeles together while having a great time and learning from each other.
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 more. 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“.
- Friday (6pm-10pm)
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 dinner and we’ll have the first lesson about settings and all the stuff you need to know for the following two days
- Saturday (9am-7pm)
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. This will be an intense shooting day and you will probably be very tired. We can have a late dinner together if you are still motivated enough and have a chat about whatever comes to mind. 🙂
- Sunday (9am-6pm)
We will meet up in the morning and while having breakfast you will have my feedback on your work from the day before and I will give you my feedback on your work. Later after lunch, we are going to head out again to shoot some more. Officially the workshop will end at 6 pm but if you are up for it we can have dinner together and to talk more.
