    In this class

    Beginning in the classroom, this course looks at the history of street photography, setting up a camera for street photography and the legalities of street photography. The course then takes to the streets to practice and flex these skills, under the guidance of our helpful, experienced tutor.

    • How to shoot people without feeling intimidated
    • Practical advice as you shoot
    • The where and when of street photography

    Back in the classroom: Review of participants' photographs from the day with guidance on how to improve and where to go to keep getting your pictures.

    Now you can

    • confidently practice street photography, armed with both practical and legal knowledge
    • hone your skills and experiment in your free time
    • improve your skills over time using the feedback given during the class

    Did you know?

    Perhaps the most 'outdoorsy' photography can get - Hasselblad's were used during the Apollo Missions to the moon. You can even find a free Hasselblad - but you'll have to learn space travel to do so! 12 Hasselblad's were left on the moon's surface to make space on the return journey for rock specimens.
