I've never known Emus to stick their head in any sand, but I do believe it can be a habit of Ostriches.

Re: Street London

This is from 'the other side'. It's long, gushy, bit repetitive but I'm glad I stuck it out.

Re: Street London

Thanks for that - I've got to go and do some work now so I'll finish the vid later, but that guy is a good teacher and is giving a nicely organised presentation and IMHO making some sensible recommendations.

It is quite interesting, though, that someone will give what is presumably a paid-for session after he's only done serious street photography for 2 years (or so he says).

Maybe some of us on here should be teaching rather than attending expensive 'festivals'!

Re: Street London

He is certainly enthusiastic and looks about 6' 2" tall, fit and young which would be a great asset in New York. I haven't viewed the video recently but the message that one should familiarise oneself with the geography, general environment and history of a place is a simple one but I wonder how many aspiring street togs do that?

I looked at the street symposium and will give it a miss and keep to my promise to myself that the next workshop that I attend will have a lot of input from - me!

Re: Street London

Banging on about workshops, a few years ago, I was very privileged to attend a weekend with the amazing Giles Duly. He is a very inspirational photographer, an incredible example of human resilience with an intellectual breath on the subject of our art that I haven't encountered since. I read an interview recently where he said that he had never been happier than now.

When the joints and other areas ache, I sometime think think about Giles and get things into perspective.
