If you enjoy everyday life stories, ordinary people, and the urban landscape, this workshop is for you. We are surrounded by beauty at every instant, and you will learn how to capture these moments and transform them into poetic images.

You will learn to be aware of your surroundings and keep a lookout for moments while walking on the street, through a market, or in a crowd during a day of national celebration. You will train your eye while learning about the photos of great masters, such as Robert Doisneau, Saul Leiter and Martin Parr.

Students can expect to:

  • Learn about composition in photography
  • Develop observational skills to catch a moment and telling a story in a photograph
  • Get hands-on experience through practical assignments.

Suitable for all skill levels and all kinds of digital cameras.

Don’t forget to bring your camera, lens, battery full charged, memory card and plenty of motivation!
