Essential Street Portrait Crash Course

Eric Kim | Confident Beginner

Have you ran into an interesting stranger on the streets and had a burning desire to take their photo, but you were too scared to speak with that person? Do you want to build up that courage to engage with strangers more comfortably and without hesitation? Do you want to meet other street photographers that are as equally as passionate about street photography and portraiture just like you?

In this action packed day, you will learn the essentials of a great street portrait and how to engage and interact with strangers more comfortably.

The workshop is limited to a class of 16  passionate individuals who want to take their street portraiture to new heights. The crash course will be an intimate experience in which you will learn how to get more “yes” answers when approaching strangers for a photograph.
