A One-Day Seminar  //  Saturday, October 13, 2018  //  9:00 am – 4:30 pm

Comfort Inn, & Suites BWI

6921 Baltimore Annapolis Boulevard

Baltimore, MD 21225

$99.00 with Discount Code

What makes a great street photograph? What techniques, equipment, compositional elements and psychology help elevate street shooting to a fine art? In this projector-driven seminar we’ll explore these questions and others as we view and deconstruct the work and general approach of a variety of street masters, including Walker Evans, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Elliot Erwitt, Diane Arbus, Sebastião Salgado, Garry Winogrand, Steve McCurry, Joel Meyerowitz, Vivian Maier, and a host of others whose work we promise you’ve never seen.  Along the way, we’ll also consider whether all great street photographers have at least one element in common:  an underlying vision or personal philosophy of the world.
