Gathering (1 hour) - We'll first get together to meet each other and talk through some of the key principles and techniques involved in street photography. We'll discuss styles, aims, attitude, composition, working a scene, overcoming blocks, interacting with subjects, story telling and camera techniques.

Going Out (2 hours) - The majority of the workshop will be out on the streets. We will focus on three different geographic areas, practising different techniques in each.

Group Critique (1 hour) - To close the workshop, everyone is welcome to share a few images from the day. We'll then discuss the images, post-processing techniques, the New York street environments and how the techniques have helped to create memorable images.
