Starting at 9am at the Leederville Rooftop event centre, Christian will have a presentation that will introduce you to what street photography is, and how you can push yourself to turn your snapshots into great street images. Following on from presentation, we will embark on a walk through the Leederville streets, putting into practice all the tips and tricks you have just been shown. Christian will be on-hand to guide students and to demonstrate how he goes about capturing candid moments.

After the walk, we will return to the store and discuss the photos taken during the walk, along with another presentation while we enjoy lunch and drinks.

For those just starting out in street, you will get to see dozens of fabulous photos throughout the presentation from photographers such as Alex Webb, David Alan Harvey, etc.

Photobooks will be brought along as well so that students can see, in print, the rich history of street photography.

Depending on the number of people attending, the photo walk will ideally be done in small groups, so we don’t become too intrusive to the public. Christian will follow a pair, or small group for half of the time and demonstrate shooting techniques, and then head off to see the other pair or small group for the second half of the break to show them the same techniques.
