Designed for the women who are interested in trying out street photography. The day is suitable for beginners through to advanced. This day is about the ‘art’ of street photography and being comfortable creating great images with your camera.
As well as learning great new street photography techniques and creative approaches, you will discover how to produce stylish and distinctive images, which reflect your style.
We start the day with coffee before heading out to see what we find; looking for great subject matter in the people, we have behind the scene photographic opportunities, including barber and tattoo shops.
