This street photography workshop was destined to sit head and shoulders above would-be competitors in the genre in the UK, and was full of promise. For a start, the “Streetsnappers” website is dedicated to this genre alone. In addition, it did not go unnoticed that Brian, the workshop leader, showed a keen interest in gaining an understanding of his students’ individual skill levels in the days leading up to the Workshop. It seems to me that this is of paramount importance to effective teaching, yet is is so often missing from the offer of some other companies in this field. The day started with a comprehensive briefing over coffee where Brian’s interest in his students and where his enthusiasm and expertise in street photography shone through. Technical information was shared in an easy-going, interactive style and it was quickly apparent that part of Brian’s working life involves academic teaching.Richard B
I am a fairly experienced photographer but new to street photography. I wanted a course that would challenge me, teach me some new ways of working and help conquer my reluctance to shoot strangers. This course delivered on all counts. Our course leader, Brian, was a very experienced photographer with a real talent for getting the message across in an engaging way. He put us at ease right from our first encounter and worked hard with every member of the group from the beginning of the workshop to the end of the day. All in all a very worthwhile, fun, informative, provocative and top value day. Bravo Steetsnappers, I’ll be back for more!Robin Y
I spent a wonderful day with Brian on Sunday. We had a mixed bag of weather but this didn’t hinder the fun. I wanted to spend a day to up my confidence levels, build a foundation for me to move forward with and glean as much information as I could from a pro! A pro he is but one that is wiling to share every tip he possibly can with you. His style of teaching was perfect for me and I really cannot recommend this course highly enough. There is structure to the day but Brian is happy to go off piste and deal with anything you may throw at him.Victoria M

Principal & Course Leader
My interest in street photography started when, as a photojournalist, I pounded the streets of London, shooting material for news and features. My philosophy on street photography is simple: it’s all about the ‘moment’ of the aesthetic – or both; there’s certainly more to it than shooting pictures of random strangers in the street or sitting in cafes. I enjoy introducing people to a more thoughtful, creative approach.
When I’m not working as a street photographer I run a commercial and editorial photography business, I teach as a Visiting Lecturer at universities, I lecture at camera clubs and I’m a featured writer / photographer in photographic and travel magazines. My latest street photography book, ‘Mastering Street Photography’, is published by Ammonite Press and is for sale worldwide. My next book, based on 52 street photography projects, is due to be published in October 2018.
