Finding Your Voice on the Street with Nick Turpin (Weekend-Intensive)

10:00 am - 6:00 pm

10:00 am - 6:00 pm
At whatever stage you are at with your street photography, this workshop will help you to evolve. Starting not with “how” but with “why” you take street photographs, Nick will help you to understand your own motivations for making candid photographs in public places.
We will start by discussing your current relationship with street photography, explore how street photographs are constructed, and study the difference between taking a photograph vs. making a picture. Further, we will examine where your work fits in within our global environment and empower you to start making your own unique contribution. Out on the street, Nick will talk you through the strategies and approaches he uses to construct a scene and curate a photograph. He’ll show you how, with hard work, great street photographs happen while you are out taking good street photographs. On Sunday, Nick will draw upon the previous day’s work to help you tease out and own your unique vision. The workshop ends with a presentation of your street work.
A street photographer is an artist and author. This workshop aims to help you find and explore your own visual voice on the street and give you the confidence to justify and an own it.
