Leica Akademie Australia is pleased to announce our next Melbourne-based street photography weekend with Jesse Marlow.
Whilst it’s possible to cover a lot of ground over the course of a single day, Jesse is keen to spend more time with individual guests and so we are conducting this workshop over two very full days. This allows a much more in-depth experience with two extended shooting sessions under Jesse’s guidance, followed by an editing, review and critique session in the private Akademie workshop space at the new Melbourne Store.
Day 1: Saturday 4 May 2019, 10am – 4pm
The workshop will commence at Jesse’s studio in Collingwood with a short presentation by Jesse showing his work and discussing his approach to street photography. Tips on how to overcome potential fears of shooting in public, confidence, body language and expectations. At about 11.30am the small group will head out into the surrounding areas to ‘pound the streets’ looking for interesting and quirky images. Jesse will spend time with each guest throughout the day, helping you refine your craft and boost your confidence on the street.
Day 2: Sunday 5 May 2019, 8am – 4pm
Day 2 will include a morning session of shooting with Jesse exploring the colour, light and people in and around the streets of Collingwood followed by lunch.
In the afternoon, there will be a group editing session back in the classroom with comments and critique. Participants must bring their own laptop for editing.
Equipment: Please feel free bring your own cameras and a memory card, Leica or not. Leica Cameras can be provided if you would like to try one out.
