Street Photography Workshop

Street Photography Workshop

Saturday the 13th of November
St Enoch Subway Station - 9.30am - 2 Hours
The street photographers of the world might envy photographers who take portraits or stage photo shoots. The latter group gets to control and create an image before taking it, which seems a hell of a lot easier than being able to get the perfect moment on camera as it occurs spontaneously. The street photographer has to wait for just the right moment to capture something worth shooting. The whole point of street photography is to capture happenstance — unplanned moments in public space. Often this involves humans (sometimes doing funny things, like tripping or making strange expressions), but sometimes street photography just captures the photographer’s surroundings. Although it can be similar to architectural photography, it doesn’t have to focus on the structures in front of a lens. Instead, the focus of a street photograph is the composition of random objects coming together in a photographer’s frame. The talented street photographer captures these chance happenings in a meaningful and engaging way.

INSTRUCTORS
Hassan Nezamian
I launched my career as professional freelance photographer when I was awarded my first photography certificate in 2006. I graduated from the University of the arts London in 2015 with honor bachelor’s degree and master’s degree in photojournalism and documentary photography in 2017. In the past decade, I have sharpened the broad range of skills in photography and applied them in a variety of photography sub-branches that rendered me unique opportunities as a photographer providing me with the chance to establish robust communication skills with people of various age groups and culture. Being behind a camera has donated me a full insight for perception of global phenomena and themes making me eagerly keen to convey my own definition of art and photography via my tools to the prospective photographers in the young generation. Two bodies of work have been published since 2009. Iran Water, Wind, Soil in documenting Iran’s natural landscape and Bitterness of war which depicts the long-term effect of war in Bosnia. From 2010 to the present date, I have been documenting a series of projects; namely, refugee and asylum seekers daily life in cooperation with Mary hill integration network, diversity of leprosy in west Bengal India partially funded by The Leprosy Mission of England and Wales, Romney Marsh Wool in Southern England and West Wales was defined and implemented, Iranian Leaving room in London related to immigration of four generations of Iranian immigrants. I was invited to teach photography within the framework of art workshops in 2011 in Glasgow focusing on basics of photography and studio lighting. I have already had over 15 solo photography exhibitions in the United Kingdom during the past 10 years and also I was nominated in the following events for the prize. La Grande Photo Awards Nominee photo. International photography of the year EDITORIAL: DOCUMENTARY (PROFESSIONAL) - HONORABLE MENTION Grand prix photography award 2012 Serbian photo completion 2015 nominated
