In-Person Learning at LACP

This six-month class will introduce students to Street Photography. We’ll study historic and contemporary street shooters, and make our own candid photographs in a variety of Los Angeles locations. We’ll meet once a month on Monday evenings, for lecture and critique, and once a month on Saturdays for a shooting session.

Topics covered in class include: what is good content and composition, how to capture a mood or a moment, and how to see light. Additional topics will include: strategies for candid shooting; the power of the “decisive moment”; and techniques for street portraiture. We’ll discuss equipment choices and lens selection, as well as the laws and ethics of shooting on the street, and best practices for brave but careful shooting.

Many of the shooting sessions will take place in downtown Los Angeles. Some of the areas we might work in are: Broadway, the Toy District, the Fashion District, the Flower District, Chinatown, Little Tokyo, the Arts District, on Olvera St., and in Union Station. If it rains, we’ll ride the Metro for a few hours. We’ll also shoot on the Venice Beach Boardwalk, Hollywood Blvd, and elsewhere.

During a 15 year newspaper career, Tom was a frequent winner of distinctions from the National Press Photographer’s Association, as well as being named California Newspaper Photographer of the Year in 1995 and Los Angeles Newspaper Photographer of the Year in 1996. As a magazine freelancer, his pictures have been published regularly in Time, People, Business Week, Barrons, Smithsonian National Geographic Traveler, and US News & World Report, and have also appeared in Brandweek, Sunset, Harper’s and Travel Holiday.

Sunshine & Noir had its solo debut at the Afterimage Gallery in Dallas in April 2006, and was exhibited at the Robin Rice Gallery in New York in 2008 and 2013, and at the Blue Sky Gallery in Portland in 2009 and 2015, among other galleries and museums. The American Apparel debuted at the RedLine Art Center in Denver, and Dancing In the Dragon’s Jaws—Tom’s reportage from gay San Francisco in the mid 80s—debuted at the Jewett Gallery in SF in 2012.
