Event info

This workshop is ideal if you want to explore street photography in any form, get inspired, learn appropriate techniques and spend time in London shooting and practicing these new found skills.

To maximize shooting time on the day, we will send you on an on demand video which covers the technical learning for you to watch before the day.

On the day you will need any camera from iPhone to DSLR (I will discuss gear in the video portion of the workshop)

You will have the opportunity to shoot and put you new found skills into practice.

Why will this make me a better photographer?
