I’ve been shortlisted for the International Street Photography Awards for the second time (I made it as a finalist in the inaugural competition in 2011).
Organized this year by Fotoura, the standard of the shortlist this year is very high with great sets of pictures by fellow stranger David Wilson as well as some other familiar names like Dougie Wallace, Seigfried Hansen, Marcos Bauza, Lukas Vasilikos and Casper Claasen along with a host of fresh talent. Good luck everyone.

Istanbul street photography workshops

I am going to be doing two one week workshops in Istanbul with ‘Cardiff After Dark’ photographer Maciej Dakowicz in early May.

 

Workshop summary:
There are two separate week-long street and travel photography workshops in Istanbul available. These intense workshops are intended for four participants each and are mostly practical in application, where the participants will be shooting on a daily basis with both tutors, sharing their experiences and improving photographic approaches and techniques. Shooting will be done in pairs with no large group shootings, eliminating the common problem of other workshops where there are too many people trying to shoot the same subject. Each day Maciej and David will be shooting with one different participant each and the other two participants will shoot together (so there will be three pairs of us). The day begins with breakfast where we will discuss our shooting plans and later meet for lunch, where we will make some preliminary reviews and exchange pairings for the afternoon session. At the end of the evening, there will be a more detailed editing and feedback session followed by more informal discussions over supper and drinks. As the week progresses, David and Maciej will both give presentations that demonstrate the various approaches of story telling and editing your work. Night photography will also be explored, where there will be a minimum of two evening of shooting ‘Istanbul After Dark’.

I just got back from my recent trip to China and am currently working on an edit of the work I shot there. There will also be a slight redesign of the site so stay tuned for further details.

I’m very excited that I’m off to Beijing next month. It will be my very first visit to China so I hope it will be a good experience and I can return with some nice pictures.
