About the company
StreetSnappers is an established, UK-based photographer training business which specialises in documentary and street photography courses and workshops. On our immersive full-day workshop you will learn the art and the essential techniques of street photography – whether in London, other major UK cities or in European cities such as Venice, Lisbon, Prague and Paris.
Our workshops concentrate on ‘getting the picture’ and exploring the creative side of street photography. We make the most of our time together by focusing on five key areas:
- Building your confidence as a street photographer, conquering your fear of shooting on the streets
- Developing your powers of observation so that you ‘see’ the right opportunities
- Helping you understand the principles of light and composition in street photography
- Coaching you in the essential shooting techniques to ensure that you capture ‘the moment’
- Enabling you to take stylish and meaningful images which go beyond the often-seen ‘stranger in a street’ picture
Our small but very nice team
