Street Photography 101 – Online, tailor-made Street Photography workshop

Street Photography is an art that can be taught both online and offline. Here at StreetHunters.net we offer Street Photography 101 as an online 1 to 1 course (One tutor one student) and we are planning to offer an offline workshop in groups of 10-12 students, in the future. Both types of workshops have their benefits all you have to do is see which type works best for you.

Here I will explain why an online workshop is as good as an offline group workshop, if not better.

What are the benefits of having a One to One Online, Street Photography workshop?

Most of the points I will point out below are obvious, but I feel that I have to mention them nevertheless because some of these points might be overlooked accidentally.

  1. I will have my focus on you and you only.
    All my attention will be focused on you and nobody else. I will devote my time 100% to helping you learn everything you need to become a better Street Photographer.
  2. You will have the chance to work at your own pace.
    No more rushing to keep notes. No more jumping ahead of items because the rest of the class knows something and you are too embarrassed to say you don’t. You set the pace of the workshop.
  3. The course will be designed by me, around you, based on your needs and your desires.
    Of course we will follow the course outline as mentioned below, but we can modify it according to your needs. The way, you will follow a course that is designed specifically for you, based on your experiences and your goals.
  4. You get to pick my brain without interruptions.
    If you have questions, you can just ask away!
  5. You can ask me any question without feeling embarrassed that someone else might think less of you.
    I remember that this happened to me sometimes when at school as a young boy. I am sure it has happened to everyone. I wanted to ask something but I felt that everyone else would think I asked a question with an obvious answer, so I wouldn’t. I would then ask the teacher in private. The online workshop is private all the time, so you can ask anything you like, without the fear of feeling embarrassed.
  6. You can learn from the comfort of your own home, during a time that is ok for both you and me.
    This is self explanatory. Just lay back, wear your most comfortable clothes, and enjoy learning from your home at your own pace!
  7. You can really get into the theory of Photography and the history of Photography and learn from the lessons taught to us by the Masters of Photography.
    During workshops I will talk about the Masters of Photography and what they teach us. Since the workshop is online we can share screens and exchange views on the Masters work and really get into what they are trying to convey to us as viewers through their work.
  8. You will receive detailed criticism on your work by me.
    I will examine your photos during my own time, without wasting valuable time from your tutoring. So you will receive a more thorough feedback that will be of high value to you. Feedback that will help you grow as a Street Photographer.
  9. You will learn how to shoot on your own in the street without company.
    That is how Street Photography is done anyway. It is not for teams of people. You must overcome your fears on your own and reach new levels of skill, through hard practice.
  10. You don’t have to travel to meet me. So you don’t have to pay for travel costs.
    Save money on air tickets or hotel rooms. Save money on daily expenses for food and other needs.
  11. You will have the options to re-arrange lessons (on reasonable notice of course).
    So, if for example we have a lesson scheduled for a Monday evening, we can re-schedule it for a Thursday or whatever works best for both of us.

About Spyros Papaspyropoulos (Tutor)

Portrait of Spyros Papaspyropoulos Street Photographer and Street Hunter

Spyros Papaspyropoulos is a passionate Street Photographer that loves to experiment with all sorts of gear and formats. He is equally passionate about digital and film photography and has a vast knowledge of both mediums. He has been photographing since a boy as a hobby. He has had a camera around his neck all of his life, documenting it on a daily basis most of the time. During that last 4 years, he has only been shooting Street. He has been pushing his boundaries trying to reach new levels of expertise in Street Photography by experimentation and constant trial and error. This hands on experience has given him the ability to easily work through issues that most new Street Photographers face. Most of his body of work is from Crete, where he lives and from Athens, the capital of Greece which he visits on occasion to Photograph. He has had his work published in local newspapers of Crete, in the Camerapixo magazine and numerous blogs. Spyros’s interviews:

In mid 2013, Spyros and Andrew Sweigart co-founded StreetHunters.net. A website that is now a definitive resource for Street Photographers all over the world.

Testimonials

“The best teachers are those who teach with passion. The passion Spyros feels and spreads for photography and street photography is authentic, palpable and ever-present. You feel it. The workshop with him has been a pleasure. Every lecture (actually an hour of pleasant talk and exchange of views) was very practical, as you can read in the curriculum. The most practical moment, however, is the project to be presented at the end of the workshop. You have to take the camera in your hands and make something. To submit my work to the judgment of others is often a frightful experience to me, but it became interesting and useful under the guide of Spyros. He definitely gave me something, and this something will change my experience of photography. Grazie, Spyros!” – Gilberto Lacchia
