BOX Cafe & Bar, Aotea Centre Terrace, Auckland CBD


All Ages

Ticket Information:

  • Workshop Admission: $178.50

Designed for the ladies who are interested in trying out a few different street photography techniques. This is not a technical workshop or about how to operate your camera; it’s about the ‘art’ of street photography and being comfortable creating great images with your camera, using either manual or auto settings.

As well as learning great new street photography techniques and creative approaches, you will discover how to produce stylish and distinctive images which reflect your style.

With a maximum of six, we start the day with coffee before heading out to see what we find; looking for great subject matter in the people, the bars, the shops, the waterfront, the work and the play.

What you will learn:
- Develop a street photographer’s ‘eye’ and learn how to spot a photo opportunity in an everyday street scene
- Appreciate the aesthetics of street photography
- Understand the importance of developing your own style as a street photographer and how to conceive and undertake ‘projects’
- Understand the components of a great street image
- Practice different types of street photography and discover your preferred style of shooting
- Conquer your fear of photographing strangers
- Become invisible and shoot your environment quietly and unobtrusively
- Understand some of the key legal and ethical aspects of street photography
- Learn how to react positively if people are questioning, challenging or offended.

- We meet at 10.00 am for coffee, introductions, and tuition session before setting off onto the streets
- Our itinerary will take us to some great Auckland central street photography ‘hot spots’, where we will put into practice some of the principles learned in the morning session; expect to walk around 4km - 6km on this workshop
- Throughout the day you will receive a significant amount of one-to-one tuition and coaching
- We’ll find somewhere quiet for a lunch break, with a group discussion before hitting the streets again for the second structured photographic session
- We will finish the formal part of the day at around 4.30 pm back where we started with drinks, a thorough debrief and a further Q&A session
- Individual critique for photos taken on the day is available during the week following the course
- After the course, participants will be encouraged to keep in touch through our closed group FaceBook alumni network.
