Apply now for a street photography masterclass with Richard Kalvar in London this July.

Work with a master street photographer in order to develop the mindset needed to photograph on the street. Learn about framing and composition, how to navigate crowds and find a picture, and gain invaluable insight into how to develop your own unique photographic voice.

Over three intensive days you will shoot new work and participate in group review sessions where you will explore the editing process to create a meaningful selection of work.

“My street photography is grounded in real people doing real things, and my observing them, reacting to them and trying to squeeze them into a rectangle.” Richard Kalvar

This workshop offers:

– Practical advice on how to approach photographing on the street
– Learn about framing and composition
– Group review sessions
– Editing session

The workshop is open to photographers of all levels, from passionate amateurs to working professionals who want to further refine their skills in the art of street photography.
