Street Photography Class

Samantha Parker, presents this class exclusively focused on the specialty of street photography.

During the class you will learn how the genre of street photography has come to mean a lot more than just taking a picture in a public space. Instead, it is a way of documenting the beauty and journey of the human experience.

Samantha will help you to get out of your comfort zone and into the world around you with the ultimate goal being to document your personal experience on the street through your photography.

Through a series of classroom lectures, demonstrations and hands-on exercises, Samantha will help you learn to comfortably and safely photograph in public places to create dynamic and compelling images.
