A 4-day street photography workshop with UP Photographers member Richard Bram will be a unique opportunity to explore the history, aesthetics and practical techniques of shooting on the street while challenging you to expand and explore your own individual style. Combining theory and in-the-street shooting, this workshop will enable you to put your skills to the test followed by a group review of your best shots.
Who Is It For?
Intermediate photography skills are required along with a digital camera (DSLR recommended) and an interest in street photography. It is NOT for beginning photographers. You must know the technical basics before you take this course. The workshop will be focusing more on style rather than photography technique, so you must have prior experience taking photos in the streets. The workshop is not concerned with the difference between “beginners” or “advanced” street photographers. All will be welcome within a supportive group atmosphere of like-minded photographers. If you also currently have ideas and street photography projects you’d like to pursue but find yourself lacking direction, this workshop is for you to find further guidance on how to realise them.
