Who is this workshop for?

This Melbourne workshop is for street photographers who already have some experience and are looking to sharpen their visualisation and editing skills. The workshop includes presentations, shooting on the street and a review and editing session.

If you are not a current AASPI member your workshop fee includes a one year membership on the association!

Student/Unemployed/Concession pricing is available - just contact us.

Day One: Shoot

9am

We start the first day with introductions and a conversation about what motivates each of us to make street photographs. In this session we also invite you to show six images that represent your work.

10:30am

We then deliver a presentation on what good (and bad!) street photography is. As part of the presentation we discuss various styles and approaches, and consider why we are each drawn to particular kinds of images and ways of working. We use our own photos and the work of other photographers to provide context and inspiration and to get you thinking more about your goals and what you want to get out of the workshop.

11.30am

After a quick technical check-in we then head out to make photographs. We'll be shooting alongside you, offering tips and suggestions. You'll also get to see how each of us approach working on the street. 

1pm

Quick lunch!

1:30pm

During the afternoon session you'll be working on assignments or practicing techniques and approaches that are linked to goals you identified earlier in the day. 

6pm-7pm

We'll finish shooting in the late afternoon and do a quick review before we relax over coffee or a drink and talk more street!

Day Two: Edit

9am-2pm

On the morning of day two we'll take you through the basics of an effective editing workflow and help you begin selecting and working on your best images from the first day. We will also introduce you to the art of sequencing a body of work.

Based on our conversations during the workshop, our observations from day one and our review of your work during the editing session we will also help you refine your goals and set directions for your street photography into the future.

The editing session venue is a comfortable space in the centre of town. You'll need a laptop with Lightroom (or your preferred photo management and editing software) already installed.
