Learn how to shoot your city - beyond traditional street photography.
Street photography has always been incredibly popular but now everyone is armed with a smartphone it can be difficult to capture a city in a unique way. Follow me through New York and I’ll walk you through camera settings, techniques, and tricks that will allow you to explore any city you are in.
If you are traveling for pleasure or for an assignment, knowing the shots to get, that will work together to tell the story of a place and time is what’s most important.
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 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.
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.
“I love shooting when I travel. But my photos never come out great. I figured I needed a better camera or to up my editing game. Nope. I needed to do this course!” - Henry
“Wow, this course helped me so much. I’ve been trying to improve my street photos recently and I didn’t really know how. I did this course and the exercises each day (I’ve actually done the course three times through now) and every time I’m blown away by the results. Thank you!” - Delilah
“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
