Event Details

This is a fully hands-on designed workshop for both beginners and any other one's level of street photography. 

 

  • Are you a person who is afraid to get close or even just point your camera at a person in public? 
  • Have you ever been overly nervous of photographing a moment where you felt it could have been a great shot? 

 

If you love people and want to communicate to the world with images in the form of individual shots of stories or even a full series than you're in the right company.

On Saturday participants will receive a brief overview presentation of street photography followed by an adventurous instructional shooting on the streets. Sunday is followed by another day of shooting, but students will demonstrate the skills on their own from what they were taught the previous day. At the end, students can choose to either receive critiques and feedback from their photos in person, or have them sent in through email.

These are some of the things that we will accomplish during the course.

 

  • How to get pass the fear of shooting street photography in general.
  • Know how, when, where and why to shoot.
  • How to go unnoticed while shooting.
  • How to react if people object to having their photo taken.
  • Become familiar with “street photography camera settings” for faster workflow.
  • How to “work the scene” while shooting in the streets for better results in editing.
  • The importance of constructive critiques and feedback.
  • Learn How to Effectively Time Your Shots.
  • Ultimately Identify Your Goal(s) as a Photographer.
  • How to Use Light & Reflections in The Streets.
  • Finding the Right Locations.
  • How to Structure & Present Your Best Photographs.

I've shot more on the streets than taught but I'm more than excited to instruct anyone who wants to learn from my experiences. I will cover just about everything that's needed within the time allotted so that you won't just be attending a paid lecture and photowalk tour. Have your chance to come out and meet with other like minds who you can stay in touch with later on. I believe learning any skill is always needed with talent and passion we're already born with, but skill will make us all complete in the end.

I’m Trey Maurice born Morris Brown III, a local active street photographer based in New Orleans, LA. The first time I took the experience was on a filmmaking open house visit to New York City in the summer of 2010. I leisurely just shot buildings but I couldn’t help the obvious fact of so many people on the streets. People there were more interesting to shoot and it was then that I found the addiction.

In 2011, I took most of the year off to focus on my busy postal job at time before being laid off, and since then I have been shooting more consistently. My plans before then were to direct films and documentaries but with the high cost of film production, I chose to put it on hold for a while. I realized that telling stories with street photography is more cheaper, quicker and easier without completely abandoning my love for both arts.
