The workshop will start at 8:30 am. We will meet for a presentation in a conference room located at Union Square during which we will be discussing the different ways to approach street photography. We will go over the ethical aspects of this popular genre of photography, the do's & don'ts and how to get over the fear of photographing strangers in the streets. From candid shots to street portraits, we will look at more advanced techniques to tell a story in a frame. Immediately following the presentation we will go on a 4 hour photo walk in some of San Francisco's most unique neighborhoods to practice newly learned techniques.
We will finish the afternoon in the classroom for some post processing and a group critique session.
You will leave the workshop with a renewed vision and confidence as well as new friends who share the same passion for street photography.
This workshop is limited to 10 participants, registration is first come, first serve basis. Cost to attend in: $350.
What people say about their learning experience on a photo workshop with Valerie:
"Thanks Valerie for a wonderful Street Photography workshop. Two things set this apart and made it a truly worthwhile experience: First, an inspirational and supportive environment to experiment and learn. Second, a wonderful and diverse group of participants from a variety of backgrounds and interests, all united in a common passion for photography. Highly recommended!" Denis, NJ
"The workshop has been one of my best experiences so far as a photographer. Valerie summarized her street photography principles so well; and with such enthusiasm and energy, that I felt my photography improving even with the first shooting session." Rick Riddle, Minneapolis, MN
"I really enjoyed Valérie’s street photography workshop. It was a great learning experience. Although I take lots of pictures walking the streets of a city, that is the first time I was “shooting street photography”. Her process puts you in a more focused state of mind and pushes you to appreciate the little details that day to day passersby often overlook and unnoticed." Serge M. Indianapolis, IN
"Valerie provided a terrific learning experience that was relaxed and very useful." — Jesse, Anchorage
"What a fantastic workshop Valerie! I feel we had the perfect balance of just enough classroom time to street shooting time. It was so much fun watching and learning from you during the workshop. We had a great set of varied locations which was perfect and kept things fresh and interesting each time we went out to shoot. I can't wait to attend more of your workshops from other locations in the future. Thanks for the fun and learning experiences!" Shawn Brezny Twin Cities, MN
