In-Person Learning Class

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.

All Saturday field session will be scheduled 10 am – 1 pm. As a class we’ll make location choices closer to the moment, giving consideration to festivals, events and parades.

Born in Rochester, NY, the home of Eastman Kodak, Todd Felderstein ( claims that with these roots he was destined for a career in photography and the visual arts. First introduced to the camera at a very young age via the Pentax Spotmatic, Todd continues to shoot professionally (with current equipment!) in tandem with his career as a director in film & theatre. Early successes include the “Anti-Smoking” media campaign for the City of Los Angeles’ that was featured in print and on billboards throughout Southern California and a series on martial artists that was published by Blackbelt Magazine. Clients through the years include PR and advertising agencies, Mattel, the Los Angeles Times and many others. Today, Todd likes to focus his lens on portraits, musicians, commercial and ‘street’ photography, a close relative to his work in documentary filmmaking. Todd also has a wide array of music videos, documentaries, short and long-form motion productions and was recently a finalist in the “Emerging Filmmaker Program” at the Cannes Film Festival. Todd has taught youth programs in photography and filmmaking all over the country, established the youth documentary program at the San Pedro Int. Film Festival, and is the former executive director of The Story Project, a nonprofit whose mission furthers communication skills in at-risk teens through a curriculum rooted in the media arts.
