    -

    To end the summer with a bang, we are offering a 1-day Venice Beach Street Photography Workshop for $295 for all of you adventurous photographers, amateur, professional, and anything in between. Register and pay here to reserve your place today.

    One of the top-visited destinations in Los Angeles, Venice Beach is a cultural melting pot rife with opportunities to explore your photographic vision, whether you’re watching skaters in Dogtown, surveying surfers riding waves, or immersing yourself in the beauty of the homes in the Venice Canals. From the boardwalk carnival performers to the hipsters inhabiting coffee shops on the high-fashion block of Abbot Kinney, any street in Venice will provide you with plenty of material, making this photography workshop an experience like no other.

    The Venice Beach Street Photography Workshop will teach you how to overcome your fears, utilize your tools, and make a good photograph great. You will learn how to forge a connection with your subject, use natural light, and seize photographic opportunities as they arise. After the shooting session, there will be a group critique where you will be able to discuss your work and gain important feedback from your peers and form lasting relationships. Through discussing photography in this intimate setting, everyone will grow together to understand what makes a Street photograph powerful and beautiful.

    Any level of photographer is welcome, from amateur to professional. Throughout the course, we will personally assist you with any questions or concerns you may have.
