OurStreets 4 Day London Photography Workshop with
Burn My Eye Collective members Joe Aguirre and Rammy Narula
and OurStreets editors Joseph Brazil and Clifton Barker
MARCH 8th - 11th, 2018
This 4 day intensive photography workshop in London is designed to help explore what it means to make pictures that feel personal to you. Deep discussions on why it is important to express yourself on photographs whether it be through street photography or portraiture, and how to go about it in an effective way. We will spend time shooting on the streets of London, analysing and critiquing the work produced, as well as doing exercises on editing and sequencing images. The participants will also be asked to put together a small presentation on the last day using the photographs made during the workshop.
