What you'll do

The ‘street’ has its own rhythm, its own life. Via the camera lens, I search for that ‘decisive’ moment that will never return. I am only the observer, capturing the elusive, and transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.

My workshops are fun. I will help you to move your photography to a new level.
You will:
• Learn essential street photography skills
• Learn how to visualise a scene, and how it may look as a photograph
• Know the difference between a bad and an outstanding picture
• Build pictures and story using light, composition and moment
• Learn how to shoot candidly
• Tell the story with your pictures
• Discover the rules of composition
• Evaluate you images- what did and didn’t work

After the workshop you will fill more confident shooting people in public spaces. I will give you open and honest feedback, and advice on your next steps.

The group is limited to four delegates, so you're guaranteed to get my full attention.

If you want to book a date but it is not on the calendar, contact me and I will see to arrange it.

Level of Experience: Any
Other things to note

사진을 처음 시작하는 저로써는 언어교환과 약간의현지가이드, 사진입문등 여러 마리의 토끼를 잡을 수 있는 너무나 좋은 기회였습니다. 예상치 못한 사진투어와 세심한 지도덕에 너무도 유익한 시간이었구요. 잘하지 못한 영어로 배웠지만 한국에서 배우는 것보다 뭔가 더 클리어한 느낌이 드는건 왜일까요? 특히 거리사진 전문가이기에 그쪽에 관심있는 분에게 적극 추천하고 아니더라도 사진기술의 전반적인 이해를 할 수있습니다

Magda was incredibly thoughtful, considerate, and knowledgeable. I could have easily sat with her in the café (starting point) asking general photography questions all day. She started by identifying my interests, strengths, and weaknesses in photography, identified gaps in knowledge, and tailored the experience to help strengthen the weaker points of my skillset. She explained her own process a bit, and related it to my own experience as we wandered through some of the more popular and busy places, this time looking at it through a different lens of perception. I truly didn't expect to walk away knowing so much more about how my camera works. Highly recommended!

Magda made it a personal level of teaching. She adjusted the lesson based on the client's experience. I had a lot of landscape and scenery experience. She gave me lots of insights in street photography. She showed me what to look for and how to create a story in the photos. Overall it was an excellent experience and time well spent.
