In-Person Learning Class at LACP

This class is intended to teach students how to shoot candidly on the street, not only from practical experience, but also from studying historic and contemporary street photographers.

The week-long class will consist of lecture and critique and three days of shooting on the streets of Los Angeles. On Monday after the first lecture, students will shoot as practice in the nearby area. On Tuesday, we’ll arrange to meet at a specific location in the Downtown Fashion District, and on Thursday we’ll shoot in eclectic Venice Beach. Topics covered include: the laws and ethics of shooting on the street, capturing the “decisive moment,” when to or when not to talk to someone, approaching people, how to tell a story with a single image, and how to be brave and not brazen. At the end of the week, we’ll put together a slideshow of all the students’ best work.

This course will include two field trips on Tuesday and Thursday. Students/parents should be prepared to meet on location and provide their own transportation. In addition, students should wear comfortable shoes and expect to walk up to two or three miles for each trip.

A Digital Single Lens Reflex (DSLR) camera or digital mirrorless camera capable of manual control settings is highly recommended for this class. However, all types of cameras are welcome, including film cameras. If needed, LACP has digital mirrorless cameras provided by Fujifilm that students can borrow for in-class purposes. Please contact the administration at if you need to borrow a Fujifilm camera as there are a limited number available.
