Thanks for all your emails offering ideas for Street Photography Workshop locations. I’m grateful that so many of you spared the time to send me your suggestions.
The great thing is that you not only gave me the names of towns and cities you felt would be suitable, but so many of you suggested specific locations – such as the City Walls of Chester, the waterside in Newcastle 0n Tyne. This is exactly what I needed. Thank you.
I still need more ideas please so do just fill in the simple form below and click the SEND button.
The idea is that later this year – if possible – I will put together a list of locations and dates so that I can arrange a whole series of Street Photography Workshops throughout Britain. It’s just an idea at the moment, but if I can clear the time I will make it a reality.
The workshops will involve me meeting up with small groups of photographers and offering guidance and advice while working alongside the group – actually on location and taking pictures.
Don’t worry, your details will not be passed on to anyone else, but I may get in touch later with news about the Photography Workshops.
Meanwhile here’s another of those Black & White Photographs taken for The Sunday Times on the commission to photograph Windsor and Eton.
I had an email fro Joe Tyler of London suggestion that I might have short changed The Sunday Times by only exposing 4 films on the assignment and that I should have taken more. See previous post. Well it always makes me smile when I hear of photographers being given weeks or months to complete an assignment and being able to take many hundreds of images which can then be narrowed down to a few worthwhile shots.
I the real world (that is – for most professional photographers) the pictures are wanted yesterday. Very often there is a big hole in the newspaper or magazine waiting for your pictures. I had a just ONE DAY to produce the pictures needed. Under this sort of pressure, a photographer soon learns lots of shortcuts and profession tricks of the trade. This knowledge is what I pass on to my students.
There are still a few places available for the Photography Workshop at Carlisle Cathedral Feb 4th – just £60 for the day of tuition and great photo opportunities
