WHAT IS THE LOS ANGELES STREET COLLECTIVE?

The Los Angeles Street Collective is a collective group of people who are serious about photographing on the streets of LA, rather than a photography class at the Los Angeles Center of Photography. The group is sponsored by LACP and offers several outstanding opportunities for Los Angeles street photographers to show their work.

The idea behind the Los Angeles Street Collective is to give serious Los Angeles street photographers a forum to meet, photograph, show work, and get inspired. If photographers from around the world do a web search on Los Angeles street photography, the Los Angeles Street Collective website will come up. We want to show off the best street photography in LA, therefore we have recently designed a new application process to insure that our group represents those photographers who are seriously dedicated to building their body of work and honing their ways of seeing on the street.

IS THERE A PRE-REQUISITE TO APPLYING TO THE LOS ANGELES STREET COLLECTIVE?

There is no pre-requisite, but it is strongly recommended that you take Julia Dean’s six-month “On the Streets,” class and/or Ibarionex Perello’s two-day “Working the Streets” class (at least once) before applying to the Los Angeles Street Collective.

BENEFITS OF BEING A MEMBER OF THE LOS ANGELES STREET COLLECTIVE:

1. Your street photography will be featured on the Los Angeles Street Collective website, which is sponsored by LACP.

2. Los Angeles Street Collective members will have the privilege of displaying two or more images in an annual Street Photography Group Show.

3. There will be special guest speakers during group meetings/critiques.

4. Los Angeles Street Collective members will have the opportunity to participate in STREET WEEK by sharing their street portfolio work and books.

5. Los Angeles Street Collective members will take part in a pop-up exhibition during STREET WEEK.

6. Each season, which takes place over a six-month time period, includes six scheduled shoots and four scheduled meetings/critiques.

THE APPLICATION PROCESS: (due anytime between now and January 31, 2019)

1. The work you submit must meet a certain level of criteria:
a. It must demonstrate the elements that make a strong image such as: Content, Composition, Mood, Moment, Light
b. It must demonstrate sophisticated seeing – Layering, Color, Graphics
c. It cannot be manipulated or set-up, unless it is a street portrait
d. You must spend at least 10 hours per month photographing on the streets, building your body of work

2. Please submit 20 of your street photographs taken in Los Angeles. The date does not matter – but they must have been created in Los Angeles by you. Here is what you must include in your submission email:
a. Your Full Name as you would like it to read on the website
b. 20 images saved as JPGs, each sized at 1200px on the longer side at 72dpi
c. Images should be named as follows in your desired sequencing order:
(First Name)_(Last Name)_01.jpg

f. Your website link
g. Your Instagram link
h. Send email to julia@lacphoto.org
i. Put STREET COLLECTIVE APPLICATION as your Subject Line

3. The work will be reviewed by a small group of accomplished street photographers.

4. Notification will be sent regarding acceptance. You will be asked for a credit card at that time to pay for your membership dues ($370), which will cover the upcoming six-month period.

5. Membership will be up for renewal after every six-month period. You can decide at that time to renew or forfeit. If you renew, you will continue to receive the benefits listed above. If you forfeit, you will be removed from the Los Angeles Street Collective roster and will no longer receive the benefits listed above.

IF YOUR APPLICATION IS NOT ACCEPTED:

If your submission is not accepted into the Los Angeles Street Collective you are welcome to apply again and again until you get in! There is no fee to apply. Submissions will be accepted anytime, but no later than January 31, 2019. If your submission is not accepted for the Street Collective but you have previously taken “On the Streets in LA” with Julia Dean, you will receive a $100 discount to repeat the class. Julia creates new slide lectures for every class, so there is always new visual material about ways of seeing. Many people repeat “On the Streets in LA” at least once, if not more, before moving on to the Los Angeles Street Collective.
