IÕd like to wish you a wonderful new year. In 2011, I will be leading and teaching street photography workshops in some amazing venues around the world. As the New Year begins, I wanted to let you know about this list in case you may want to join one of these very exciting workshops in some of the most visually compelling spots in the world.
In all of my workshops I focus on helping each student find their own photographic voice and vision in the spirit of making spontaneous, authentic images of daily life in the context of the wonderful venues where the workshops are held. My workshops offer students practical, technical, philosophical, and human tips and encouragement in their quest to become more comfortable photographing people and the life of a city. Most importantly, I promote a spirit of fraternity and mutual cooperation between my students—there is no competition. Students are encouraged to take risks in order to grow as visual communicators.
This yearÕs workshops will be held in Rio, Buenos Aires, Seville, Istanbul, Paris, New York, Prague, and Venice.
If you are interested in learning more about a course please click on the city name and you will be taken to a workshop description including dates, registration and tuition information. On my website, you will also be able to see galleries of studentsÕ past work, as well as student testimonials about the individual workshops.
Please feel free to share this information with others, and please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions. If youÕd like to get out of the cold this early winter, the upcoming Rio-Carnival, Buenos Aires, and Seville workshops offer great opportunities for a wonderful winter escape.
I hope this will be a great year for you full of much joy and fulfillment with your photography. With warm regards, Peter
