Weekend Workshop Sample Itinerary:

Friday Evening: (Optional) introductory dinner and drinks.

Saturday: We will start the day with a 2-hour classroom session, learning about the techniques and concepts of street photography. From ethics and fear, to technical settings and lighting, to concepts, stories, and ideas, to how to shoot in candid ways, this session will lay the groundwork for the rest of the weekend. The rest of the day will be spent photographing around New York with some post-workshop drinks afterwards.

Sunday: We will start the morning with an educational classroom session, learning about the history of famous street photographers. We will cover the work of a variety of photographers to show us different ways of doing things and to inspire us before we walk out the door. We will spend the rest of the day photographing in different areas of the city.

Post-workshop: The class will be invited to a private Facebook workshop page where we will show our photographs for critique after the workshop is over. You will have lifetime access to this page, and it will be used for subsequent workshops and will be a place where you can ask questions and receive critiques in the future.
