Street Photography workshop in London

Listen to the automated audio version of this article:

Together with John Hughes, I will be hosting a street photography workshop in London on the 23rd of November.

John and I have become friends through photography. We have met several times for photo walks in London and also went shooting together a few times.
John is a well-known talented street photographer. I learned a lot from hanging out with him and all the people he’s connected me with.
He already hosts workshops in London and Cambridge. And I know how good they are because I’ve been to one of them.

I run workshops on landscape photography worldwide, organising them spontaneously while travelling (like in Tel Aviv). But this will be my first street photography workshop and the first one in the city where I’m based.

2 is better than 1

I’m a very different photographer from John.
He is a classic “purist” street photographer, mostly shooting in black and white. Some of his photos remind me of Bruce Gilden, particularly when John shoots with the Ricoh GR II and gets really, really close to his subjects.

I rarely use black and white because I see colour as a very important subject. Sometimes as THE subject of my photos. And to me, colour and light give character to a photo.

I also don’t distaste to use Photoshop to achieve the photo I want. This is enough to cast anathema on me for not being “pure”, I know. But I primarily use it to remove what I find really annoying, like garbage on the street (when that is not part of the story).

We are also pretty different in how we put people in our photos. While John puts people front and centre in his shots, I mainly only reveal a small cut of them through lights and shadows. He’s not afraid to be awkward and ask people to pose for a portrait. I prefer candid shots.

Long story short, having John and I co-host a workshop means you get loads of value from it. Different techniques and styles, a long time together and plenty of fun.


We’ll meet in the Oxford Street area for this workshop in London and walk our way around. We’ll be shooting in daylight and during nighttime as well (being end of November, the light will go out around 4:30pm). In case of rain, of course, we’ll still run the workshop as there are plenty of opportunities (reflections, moody shots, etc), so no excuses!

This street photography workshop will last 6-7 hours, and we’ll include a session at the end where we’ll review photos and discuss editing. I travel a lot, so I often edit on the go on a tablet device and am ready to post on social media. I’ll be showing and discussing that with you in the final session.

John and I will not shoot unless you ask us for a demonstration of the settings or else. Our focus will be on you and you only.

See you there!
In the meantime, head to our Instagram profiles! (update 2023: unfortunately, John has deleted it)
