Who is this workshop for?

This workshop is for street photographers who already have some experience. Julia will help you refine your approach to shooting on the street and focus on the development of your street photography vision.

Online session

Wednesday 24th August 7:30pm

We start the workshop with a review session of a selection of your street images and a conversation about styles and approaches to street photography and why we are each drawn to particular kinds of photographs and ways of working.

Julia will use her own images and the work of other photographers to provide context and inspiration and to get you thinking about your goals for the workshop and beyond.

Saturday

Saturday 27th August 10:00am - 4:00pm

On Saturday we head out to make photographs on the streets of Brisbane. Julia will be shooting alongside you, offering tips and suggestions. You'll also get to see how she approaches working on the street.

Julia will invite you to work on assignments or to practice techniques and approaches that are linked to the goals you identified during the online session. Those assignments will be designed to increase your confidence and help you to make more interesting photographs, and will be tailored to your level of experience.

We finish shooting just before sunset and do a quick review of the day before we relax over coffee or a drink and talk more street! 

Sunday

Sunday 28th August 

10:00am - 2:30pm

For Sunday's session you will need a laptop with Lightroom (or your preferred photo management and editing software) already installed.

We will run through the editing or selection process from Saturday's session of shooting with the aim of selecting your best ten images. As a group we will then review your images.

Sunday's session will also include a sequencing exercise. Working with a selection of up to 25 of your own prints* (or with a set of images Julia provides) we will explore how they can best fit together as a series or a sequence, so that they tell a deeper story about the places, the times and the events that you have witnessed. This exercise reveals something about your strengths, your vision and your creative response to the world around you.

*For the sequencing session Julia prefers to work with small prints. She will provide more information about the session after you register.

Essentials

Meeting place and shooting locations

Shooting locations are chosen for the opportunities they provide for street photography. Julia will take into account easy access by public transport, seasonal factors (weather and light) and whatever events might be happening on the day. 

Julia will confirm meeting and shooting location(s) a week or two before the workshop date.  

What you'll need to bring

  • A digital camera that you already know how to use
  • A wide-angle lens (or a zoom that has a wide angle setting)
  • A laptop with Lightroom (or your preferred photo management and editing software)  already installed for the Sunday session only.
  • Plenty of space on one or two memory cards and a few fully charged batteries.
  • Comfortable walking shoes, sunscreen, water bottle.
  • A selection of up to 25 6x4" or 5x7" prints of your own work to use during the sequencing session. Alternatively Julia can provide you with a set of images to sequence. Either way, you'll get a solid understanding of the principles that underpin the sequencing process!

The workshop fee covers tuition, guidance and feedback during the workshop. All other costs (transport, food and drinks) are your responsibility.
