What to expect?
Two weeks of intense shooting in a friendly way. During our journey, I will give you advice on how to improve your approach of street photography, your composition and how to capture better moments of life while developing your own vision of the world. The workshop’s angle is not technical, although I will answer any technical questions. However, it is better that you already know how to use your camera and that you have basic knowledge in practising photography.
Rules are made to be broken, but to break them it is important at first to understand them. I do believe in strong composition as part of the making of a good photograph. During the workshop, I will teach you how to compose a photograph and balance forms & elements from the foreground to the background to create simple or multi layered photographs.
In a friendly group of 4 participants maximum, you will get advice and individual attention during our daily shoot so that you can improve your approach to photography and develop your own vision of the world.
During the workshop I will organise some exercises to work on particular themes in order to improve creativity, photographic composition, approach and style.
It is a very important part of the workshop. Every day I will spend some time with you assessing and constructively criticising your work while giving you some advice, tips and recommendations on how to improve your photographs.
I will start the workshop by talking about my work and my approach of street photography through a studying of some of my photographs.
Who can attend the workshop?
This workshop is for photographers who have a keen interest in travel, documentary and street photography and who want to progress in this field. The goal is that each photographer will develop his or her own vision of the world. We will walk most of the day so be prepared for that.
This street photography workshop is limited to a small number of people in order that I can give you individual attention. With a limited number of people, we will be able to achieve the aim of this workshop while having fun by sharing our own experience and stories. The goal is also to enjoy ourselves as part of a small group.
Accommodation and Transport
The price of this workshop doesn’t include flight, hotels, taxi, buses, trains …
For this workshop, we will stay in the same hotel. We won’t stay in expensive hotels but in guesthouses. Prices in India are very reasonable and it is possible to get good accommodation with a budget between £6/£10 per person per night.
Except for a group decision otherwise, we will travel using local transport. It is also a good way to experience the Indian life and share discussions with India people. Trains are a very convenient way to travel in India. Especially for long distances. I will organise the booking of all train journeys for all participants.
In order to secure the workshop a deposit will be requested.
You don’t need to have a DSLR camera or digital camera to attend workshops. I welcome film camera. However, a digital camera will help to review and discuss photographs taken during the day.
Bringing your own laptop is an option, but a good one, as it will be more than helpful for group and individual review. If you don’t have a laptop, we will use mine to review your images.
