CHICAGO CONQUER COMPOSITION Street Photography Workshop (May 22-23rd, 2021)

Dear friends,

Spring (and summer) of 2021 is in full-bloom. I am super pumped to share that spots are now open for my CHICAGO CONQUER COMPOSITION Street Photography Workshop this upcoming May 22-23rd, 2021).

If you (like myself) have felt cooped up from this pandemic, desire to explore, shoot, and re-spark your passion for photography, this workshop is for you:

Socially Distant, but Emotionally Close

One of the most difficult parts of living through this pandemic is that we are losing our compositional muscles. I envision this workshop to be a unique chance for you to practice your street photography skills (socially distant).

We will take all the precautions to shoot street photography from a safe distance. We will treat this as a good ‘creative constraint’ for us to develop new street photography composition techniques from 6+ feet away:

  1. Minimalism
  2. Dynamic street photography compositions
  3. Layers in street photography
  4. Flash in street photography
  5. ‘Figure to ground’ composition
  6. Color theory
  7. How to create sublime monochrome street photographs
  8. The art of selecting your best photos
  9. How to best market and brand yourself as a photographer
  10. Future ideas to thrive as a brave new street photographer.

Unlock Your Creative Vision


I believe that you’re not a photographer– you’re a visual artist!

This means you must learn to see the world artistically– not just photographically. This workshop will help you open up your eyes, and to hone your “visual acuity” to see the world of:

  1. Tones
  2. Shapes
  3. Forms
  4. Three-dimensionality
  5. Color
  6. Contrast (figure-to-ground)
  7. Elegance
  8. Beauty
  9. Simplicity
  10. Complexity

Learn from the Masters

In this workshop we will focus on composition lessons from the masters of street photography: Henri Cartier-Bresson, Josef Koudelka, W. Eugene Smith, and more.

Equip Yourself with New Compositional Tools

Furthermore, you will learn how to apply to your own street photography:

  1. The “golden section” (also known as the ‘golden rectangle’, ‘golden triangle’
  2. The “arabesque” (snaked and curved composition)
  3. The fibonacci spiral and “fractals”

All of these will be tools you can both directly apply to your street photography shooting and in selecting and choosing your best work.

Is This Workshop Right for Me?

This workshop is open to you as long as you are hungry to learn new techniques, push yourself outside of your comfort zone, and open to new ideas. I don’t care for your personal experience in photography or street photography — it is all about your passion for photography.

Analyze your compositions after the fact.
