  • Engage with people on the street

    People are the lifeblood of any city. Capturing the people – both local and visitors is a great way of showing the true heart of a city. We focus on both candid shots and I’ll also show you how to approach and engage strangers, and work with them to create a cool photo.

  • Break out of your rut

    Break out of your mould. It is easy to get stuck in a rut, shooting the way you always do. In this course I encourage photographers to try new approaches & gear, and share my techniques and tricks to create unique images.

  • Avoid clichés

    Every big city has its iconic landmarks and must see destinations. For some people – these are unmissable photo opportunities, to others, they are clichés and overdone. In truth - they are iconic for a reason – so let's discuss ways to approach them in new ways to create unique results.

  • “Actually having some training behind my approach to street photography has changed everything. I’m confident shooting strangers, I’m able to approach people and ask for portraits, I’m seeing the city differently and taking shots I never would before. Thanks so much, Matt. - Ian
