I'm excited to announce that my good friend, regular collaborator and the very talented street photographer Leanne Staples will be joining me in London over Christmas to run a series of street photography workshops which we're calling Seeing with New Eyes.
Leanne has been a street photographer for over 10 years. Through her business Shoot New York City she runs regular street photography workshops as well as provides walking photo tours throughout the many neighbourhoods that make up New York's 5 boroughs.
This will be Leanne's first visit to London, so she'll be seeing our amazing city for the first time. An important element of street photography is learning to see, to find the extraordinary in the ordinary, whether you're visiting a place for the first time or the hundredth. When we learn to see what is so often overlooked is when we take photographs with depth and soul.
We'll be scheduling a number of workshops throughout London over the 2017 Christmas and New Year holidays. Through these workshops, we'll be exploring a number of areas throughout central London, photographing the people and places at this very busy time of year, sharing techniques, advice and the skills that we've picked up over the many years we've been street photographers and most importantly, having fun doing it!
Places will be strictly limited so to get further information and make a booking, please visit the workshop information page at Shoot New York City.
