Ever wish you could take photos like these?
A two-day workshop with street photographer, David Gibson, could give you the inspiration, confidence and technical know-how to explore your London, camera in hand and capture striking, original urban images.
You don't need to be an expert photographer. You just need to have an interest in the subject, a love of London and a camera, be it digital, film or smartphone.
The workshop begins with a session packed with meaningful, amazing street photographs with lots of discussion and questions. You'll be introduced to the masters — Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and Elliott Erwitt — as well as lesser known but equally interesting names. This is a session about inspiration. David will share what inspires him and set the practical assignment for the following day.
Day two gets you out there, shooting east London. There'll be plenty of time to explore Shoreditch, Brick Lane and Whitechapel. After around five hours of photography, you'll gather with David and the rest of the group in a quiet bar to review the work and, most importantly, get honest and constructive feedback. Groups are kept deliberately small to ensure all participants get individual attention and excellent value over the two day workshop.
David Gibson's street photography workshop takes place on Saturday 25 August between 2-5pm at Rivington Place and Sunday 26 August between 12-7pm, meeting at Rivington Place. Workshop cost £160. Book your place, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
