Street Photography WEEKEND Masterclass
Immerse yourself in the art of street photography over a full weekend . . .
This unique weekend ‘Masterclass’ street photography workshop is for street photographers who consider themselves to be intermediate level and above. It is not for those who are new to street photography and who want to learn the basics (our 1-day workshops do that job very well!).
This workshop is for 6 participants only.
The Masterclass starts on Friday evening and finishes on Sunday evening. It offers a combination of seminar learning, critique, discussion, project development and street shooting to refine your skills, build your confidence and develop your individual style as a street photographer.
- 2x critique sessions
- Modules covering advanced techniques for composition and the use of light
- Project development seminar: get a clear sense of direction for your projects
- Shooting on the streets: an individual exercise tailored to each person
- One-to-one session with Brian Lloyd Duckett
This full weekend street photography masterclass is designed to take your work to the next level. With our time together split between the classroom and the streets, the weekend will stretch you, challenge your creativity and help steer you towards your goals as a photographer.
The course will focus on building on your existing knowledge (we assume you already a street photographer with a good grasp of the photographic basics) and will take your skills to a new level. With such a small group (maximum 6 participants), there will be ample time for one-to-one discussion, coaching, critique and mentoring.
This is an intensive and well-structured course which is based on four intensive sessions over two full days and one evening; the course balances classroom sessions with practical shooting.
