Saturday, April 13th - 9am-6pm: Various Technique overviews in the morning followed by shooting around Midtown.
Sunday, April 14th - 10am-7pm: Morning/afternoon shooting in Chinatown and Soho followed by classroom critique. Location TBD.
This workshop is intended for any photographer that is interested in walking outside and photographing people. It is expected that participants have some minimal amount of photography experience and are familiar with how to use their camera. Cameras will not be provided. Participants will be asked to submit 10 photos prior to starting the workshop. Submitting photographs is recommended but not required.
A laptop will be needed on Sunday for downloading images from your camera to edit and review.

NYC-SPC WORKSHOP TESTIMONIALS:
Robert T. : "I would absolutely recommend this workshop. The photography experience level of the participants ranged from a few months-10 years, and the workshop was set up in a way that everyone was challenged. I can’t tell you enough how talented Jorge and Sebastian are as photographers and instructors. I will definitely be signing up for the next NYCSPC workshop."
Zach R.: "Sebastian and Jorge were both extremely thoughtful and insightful during the workshop. I had a blast, and I have a way stronger understanding of how I want to approach shooting moving forward thanks to both of you. Also, just getting to hang out with other people interested in street shooting was awesome!"
Sofia S.: "It was a pleasure to be part of this talented group of people for a weekend. The lecture, your thoughts on street photography, and your feedback was all very valuable."
Mark B.: "The workshop Jorge and Sebastian hosted over the weekend taught me about staying in the pocket, finding a less muddled composition, and that my footwork leaves something to be desired."
Yusuke N: "It was amazing and I learned a lot! Although I'll go back to Japan this month, I'm going to keep shooting in Tokyo and make TOKYO-SPC! It's my pleasure to meet Jorge and Sebastian."
