A workshop with well-known street photographer Phil Penman is a great opportunity for any keen photographer to vastly improve their photography. Penman’s extensive experience in capturing candid moments and capturing life on the streets will provide you with a depth of knowledge as well as inspiration for photographers looking to take their work to the next level. One of the key areas that Phil Penman can help you with is the art of observation. Penman has a keen eye for capturing life as it unfolds, and he will share his insights into how he approaches capturing fleeting moments and unscripted scenes. Another important aspect of street photography that Penman will teach you is the importance of being prepared. He will show you how to always be ready to capture the shot, from having the right camera settings to being aware of the environment around you. Since Street photography often involves capturing images in challenging lighting conditions, processing these images to achieve the desired effect is of critical importance. This will be covered on the Sunday afternoon. Overall, this weekend's workshop with Phil Penman will provide committed enthusiasts with a wealth of knowledge and inspiration to improve their photography. With his extensive experience and creative vision, Penman helps you make great strides forward in your creative vision.
UK-born, NY-based photographer Phil Penman has documented the rapid flux of New York City’s streets for over 25 years. With clients ranging from People Magazine to The Daily Telegraph, he has photographed living legends including Jennifer Lopez and Bill Gates, and captured historical moments such as the September 11th Terrorist Attacks. Penman’s distinctive style, versatility, and dedication to his craft have won him prestigious awards and exhibitions, and a distinction as one of the “52 Most Influential Street Photographers” alongside industry luminaries Henri Cartier-Bresson and Sebastião Salgado. His debut book “STREET” launched as the Number 1 new release on Amazon for Street Photography, and has since become a best seller and been featured at MoMA in New York. A curated selection of images from the book was also exhibited in Harrods, London in the fall of 2020. Phil’s workshops in New York and London are hugely popular, so we are very pleased to announce that he will be returning to Australia for two workshop events, one in Sydney and one in Melbourne.
