Street Photography Workshop for Camera Clubs



Street photography workshop for camera clubs with Brian Lloyd Duckett


I’m currently offering private workshops for clubs and photographic societies these in London, Leeds, Birmingham, Manchester, Liverpool and Blackpool (please contact me if you’d like to discuss other locations). These can take place midweek or at the weekend.

This immersive, intensive learning experience will help elevate your street photography to a new level. With a maximum of 8 participants, this street photography workshop is designed to help you become a creative, competent and confident street photographer. It will combine structured shooting with coaching from your course leader, Brian Lloyd Duckett. It’s a full day workshop, usually starting at 10am and finishing with a drink at around 4.30 (the start / finish times can be tweaked to suit your preferences).

This workshop is as much about the ‘art’ as it is about the technical aspects of street photography. As well as learning great new street photography techniques and creative approaches, you will discover how to produce stylish and distinctive images – not random pictures of people sitting in cafes or just walking down the street.

Please check out this page for more detailed information about these workshops and how they run.


How to book your workshop

Once you have 6-8 interested participants, you can make the block booking for you all using this page; then it’s up to you to collect the money from them! Once we have received the booking we will liaise to find a mutually agreeable date, which could be a weekday or weekend. You’ll be sent a set of joining instructions for you to forward on to your group, giving them all the information they need to help them make the most of their day.



After the workshop

 Workshop follow-up

We will send you an extensive follow-up note with a recommended reading list, links to films and videos and other helpful resources. Critique is an important part of the learning process and you’ll be invited to submit images for constructive critique to help keep your development on-track. As far as we’re concerned, ‘the workshop never ends’ and Brian is always here for support and advice as your street photography journey progresses.


The StreetSnappers Collective

You’ll be invited to join the StreetSnappers Collective, the ‘virtual’ street photography club. Membership is completely free and is available only to those who have participated in Brian’s workshops. It’s a small, select and welcoming group of people with a shared passion: street photography. Benefits of Collective membership include access to a lively, active and very warm Facebook group where you can post images for critique, ask questions (about gear, techniques or locations, for example) or create debate about street photography. Members can arrange meet-ups in their areas, form critique circles and organise their own events.


What level is this workshop?

This is ideally for people who are familiar with their camera and have a grasp of the basic exposure settings. You may be new to the genre of street photography or you may be an experienced shooter who wants to refine and improve your technique. The small group size means that everyone gets plenty of one-to-one attention.


What gear do you need?

Travel light! Any camera model / make is fine, whether it’s a compact, mirrorless or DSLR; we also warmly welcome people who shoot on film. You will ideally have a lens which has a focal length of around 28 or 35mm (full-frame equivalent) or around 18 or 24mm (APS-C sensor). If you don’t a have a prime lens, a zoom will be fine. You won’t need a flash or tripod.
