Is this for me?
This London Street Photography Workshop is suitable for photographers at all levels including beginners.
Unlike a traditional workshop with a fixed agenda, our learning is bespoke to the small group of 6. We start the day over a coffee and discuss where attendees are, what they’d like to achieve long term and what they’d like to achieve on the day.
The small group will be led by multi award winning photographer Simon Ellingworth and he will share his favorite London locations in the area. Including The Tate Modern, South Bank and Graffiti Tunnel.
During the initial briefing you will learn techniques to enable you to:
- Compose quicker
- To craft more creative and compelling compositions
- To work faster to get every opportunity
- To shoot through moments to get more keepers
- To slow down and really start to read the street
- Rethink street photography in very simple terms
We will discuss how to approach each location, overall vision, composition, perspective, etc. and explore techniques including hand held longer exposure.
You will have the opportunity to explore each location and shoot under the watchful eye of Simon.
