LONDON STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOPS:
We’re passionate about Street Photography and quality education, we offer a range of amazing London Street Photography Workshops which are suitable for complete beginners to experienced street photographers alike, because unlike a traditional workshop with a fixed agenda, our learning is bespoke to the small group of 6. We start the day over a coffee and discuss where attendees are, where they’d like achieve long term and what they’d like to achieve on the day.
You’ll discuss how to approach each location, overall vision, confidence and getting close, composition, perspective, etc and explore techniques including hand held longer exposure.
You will have the opportunity to explore each location and shoot under the watchful eye of Simon.
You’ll find the current schedule of workshops at the bottom of this page.

Thank you for another great day, your endless enthusiasm is infectious. It’s inspirational to watch you conjure up and teach us to see amazing images from scenes we’d all have walked past. (Celia, UK)
My street photography has improved more in my two workshops with Simon than with all the other workshops I have done combined…and believe me, I have done many! … (John, UK)’
I appreciated your training skills and your encouragements.
And feel inspired and motivated to do more of this genre! …. (Helen, Switzerland)
When I started street photography I foolishly thought it was some kind of more spontaneous form of photography. From watching you I see that you are incredibly observant, you have such creativity-what ideas- and then to top it all a great eye for composition and absolute precision in executing the shot. The complete package.
I am inspired to learn more so I hope you don’t mind me booking onto more trips-really fancy a Paris trip when you run it. – (Lenna, UK)
I’ve been on a lot of workshops and can say that this was in fact my best photographic day in 10 years! (Alison, UK)
