Two Burn My Eye members Barry Talis and Jack Simon are doing a 3 day workshop in San Francisco this June as part of the Streetfoto San Francisco 2019 International Street Photography Festival.
Street Photography Workshop with Dimitris Makrygiannakis in Prague, Czech Republic, 28-30 September 2018
Burn My Eye member Dimitris Makrygiannakis will lead a workshop in the streets of Prague, a city well known to him since he has visited it few times in the past. Prague is a great city for shooting with a very lively vibe, especially during weekends when the workshop will take place.
The workshop will start on the evening of Friday the 28th with portfolio reviews and presentations/discussions about street photography, continuing during the weekend with shooting in the days, and editing/discussions in the nights. Expect a quite intensive programme, with long hours of shooting and editing/discussing as well. There will be a follow-up of participants' progress with a Skype Session 6 months after the workshop.
MAXIMUM 5 PERSONS.
WORKSHOP FEE 380 EUROS, EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT 280 EUROS (UNTIL JULY 20).
Dimitris Makrygiannakis (1979) is the winner of the Invisible Photographer Asia 2013 as well as of the Fotoura 2014 Street Photography award. His photos have been exhibited in various exhibitions around the world, and in various online and printed publications, including David Gibson's latest book '100 Great Street Photographs'.

Andy and TC, both founding members of BME, are both experienced street shooters who have taught and exhibited their work around the world, and we’re excited to be teaching this unique class in San Francisco.
While this course resembles other workshops in terms of introductions, shooting, assignments, and extensive critique, the focus will be on exploring your motives for street photography. Why are you attracted to shooting candid shots of people in public spaces? Why do certain types of subjects, situations, or compositions attract you? If you already have some ideas on these questions, we will help you explore them. If, like most of us, you aren’t quite sure, you will be encouraged to seek what lies behind your urge to create this kind of photography, while learning about yourself and the creative forces that drive you.
The workshop will run three full days, starting on Sunday, June 3, one day prior to the StreetFoto festival’s official opening day. It is open to shooters of all skill levels, but it is not a beginner’s primer, instead focusing on artistic motivation. Beginning shooters are of course also encouraged to join the class, but should not expect to be walked through basic issues such as how to hold a camera or which lens to use.
Students will need to bring their own gear: A camera, a laptop (or some way to edit), and a USB memory stick.
The number of seats is limited, so don’t wait! Sign up at: http://streetfoto.org/workshops/#bme
We look forward to seeing you there!
The 2 day workshop with Rammy Narula will be focused on developing an eye for observation, and learning the importance of having your own voice in street photography. It will include the experience of making pictures on the streets of Bangkok as well as discussion and critique sessions.
