Why live in a city of 8 million people, if you aren't going to talk to any of them? In this intensive yet fun workshop, students take to the streets, to directly confront their fear of approaching strangers. Participants in this class learn how to get the picture they want efficiently by communicating their desires. We explore all aspects of photographing people, including fears and boundaries, model consent forms, and historical context. All photographic formats are welcome.

Course Level / Prerequisite: Open to all skill levels. Students ranging from beginner to experienced will be successful in classes that are Open to All Skill Levels.

I suggest the following to get the most out of your workshop: — A notebook to take notes — A selection of previous work that you feel represents you. (10 pictures in digital form. 1000 pixels on the long side @ 72dpi). This is just so I have an idea of where you are coming from photographically. — A camera of your choice. Anything from an iPhone, DSLR, a Rolleiflex to a 4x5 camera. — A Tripod (Optional) — Memory card for your camera — Laptop (Optional) for digital shooters to process their images. I encourage you to shoot with whatever camera you wish to use after the workshop so that I can help you in the long run. The class is more about the experience than it is about the pictures. Although we will go over both on the street as well as with in-class critiques. If you wish to shoot film, you may want to consider that it is a weekend workshop and you will not be able to have your rolls processed for the second day of class, though you are more than welcome to shoot film for your own personal enjoyment. Digital we will be able to view right away, of course. For questions about what the school has available in terms of equipment and facilities, it is best to contact the Education Dept.
