This workshop will explore the many practices that can live under the umbrella of “street photography” with an emphasis on both the physicality and intentionality of the work. We will discuss “taking” and “making” pictures; hunting and gathering, visual communication, poetic storytelling, and other themes as we move from making singular strong images towards creating a body of work.

Beginning with a overview of each students history and a critique of their current work, the workshop will then push forward to working on the street; and conclude with a focus on editing and sequencing to communicate a specific point of view.

Gus Powell will share why he loves pointing a loaded camera at people he doesn’t know, and what it takes to be committed. Topics covered include: ambiguity & poetic truth, a sense of place, the “decisive moment,” optimism & pessimism, when your protagonist isn’t a person, pictures that are nouns & pictures that are verbs, how and when to approach people, when to get closer, when to get farther, when to get a coffee, and more.

The shoots will take place in and around Los Angeles; such as Beverly Hills, Hollywood Blvd., Venice Beach, Santa Monica Pier, or Downtown Los Angeles (Arts District, Broadway, Chinatown, Fashion District, Flower District, Little Toyko, Olvera Street, the Toy District, and Union Station). During the shoots, Gus will do both group and one on one work; and cover technical information on how to make the most of the equipment you work with.

The workshop will conclude with a presentation highlighting the best work from each participant.

Students are encouraged to attend LACP’s “Street Shooting Around the World” exhibition the evening of February 16th.
