Workshop Description

Dear friend,

Are you a street photographer who feels creatively frustrated? Do you want to make a personally-meaningful body of work? Do you want to re-invigorate your passion for street photography, and take your work to the next level? Do you want to do this with the most iconic city in the world as your backdrop?

If so, I am excited to invite you to my upcoming “Discover Your Unique Voice” Advanced Street Photography Workshop in New York City (October 7-8th, 2017, Saturday/Sunday). Because I will be attending a friend’s wedding in Chicago this October, I decided to host my only Discover Your Unique Voice in Street Photography workshop in the United States planned for 2017.

This workshop is suitable for intermediate/advanced street photographers who have a good technical understanding of photography and the fundamentals of street photography. The focus will be to take your street photography to the next level, through honest & critical feedback and critique. This isn’t a workshop for the meek. If you are looking for an adventure and a challenge, this workshop will be perfect for you.

Workshop Syllabus

Paris, 2015

During this intensive 2-day workshop, we will focus on the following topics:

  1. How to develop your style in street photography and stick out from the crowd
  2. How to create a memorable body of work
  3. How to focus on a project rather than just single images
  4. One-on-one counseling on what to look for when shooting on the streets
  5. How to identify your weakest images and effectively edit and sequence your work
  6. Personalized street photography assignments to push you to the next level
  7. How to develop a visual consistency in your work

The workshop will be tailored to your individual needs and you will have the opportunity to work on a mini-assignment for the weekend that will give you the foundation to work on longer more in-depth projects.

Workshop Schedule

Day 1 (Saturday): 10am-6pm

Hollywood, 2012
Hollywood, 2012

When we meet in the morning, we will use this time to get to know one another, and also discuss our weaknesses in our photography, and “why” we make photos.

This will be an opportunity for you to ask me any questions you have about street photography, and also help hone your personal vision in your work.

Based on what you share, I will give you personalized street photography assignments, and help you discover your unique voice in street photography. These assignments will be based on what you feel like you’re lacking, and I will be the motivational push to help you achieve your “personal maximum.”

The entire day will be intense; we will be shooting for around 5-6 hours, and I will create 1:1 shooting time with you in the streets. This won’t be a boring workshop where you sit in a classroom the entire day; it will be an action-packed workshop, pounding the pavements.

The workshop is also going to be in Downtown NYC, one of most interesting places to shoot in the US. This will be a great stomping-ground for you to pave your new skills, vision, and techniques in street photography.

Day 2 (Sunday): 10am-6pm

Downtown LA, 2011
Downtown LA, 2011

Sunday morning we will have an opportunity to discuss the prior day’s shooting. We will use this time to review images, help discuss your personal strengths, weaknesses, and what you would like to continue to work on.

We will then go out together, and have more time to shoot and practice techniques, composition (layers, depth, triangles), and any other technical settings you might need help with.

At the end, we will have time to hone your skill and workflow in Adobe Lightroom. I will teach you the fundamentals of editing, and how to maximize your efficiency when selecting and processing your photos. We will also have a final critique session, that will be brutal, honest, and critical– that will help you continue your learning and vision after the workshop.

What You Will Learn

This workshop won’t turn you into the next Henri Cartier-Bresson. However it will help you hone your own personal vision in your photography, build your confidence and help you create more visually-compelling compositions.

This is a workshop that will help identify your weaknesses while focusing on your strengths.

After the workshop, you will have more creative confidence, a stronger understanding of long-term projects, that will help you achieve your “personal maximum” in your photography, life, and work.
