Street Photography Workshop Locations

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.

Street Photography Eton

This picture of two Eton College students was used in The Sunday Times. I feel it captures what might be seen as a degree of superiority in the expressions of these two privileged your men. When you look more closely you see that the student on the right has outgrown his pants. Do pupils still dress like that I wonder? I suspect so. Photograph by Philip Dunn

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.

Street Photography is one of the things you may learn when you come on a Photography Course with Philip Dunn. We certainly cover the subject during the Photography Holidays in Menorca

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



  1. Now that really is a bit extreme.

    However, I well remember being sent off to cover a list of 10 assignments when I was an apprentice on a local newspaper – yes it was quite common for us to do 10 jobs a night – and having 11 plates in my camera bag – there was one spare just in case of emergencies.

    Plate camera! That’s right, I served most of my apprenticeship as a press photographer in the 1960s using glass plate cameras.

  2. There’s a story on the BBC website today about the rise of digital photography how people take hundreds of shots (guilty as charged!) and it mentions the story of a photographer working on a six week assignment in Berlin in 1939 who had eight plates for the whole six weeks and had to plan each picture like a film shoot – and out of the eight pictures he took, he won awards for four of them.
