2-Day Street Photography Workshop with BME member Jack Simon

Jack Simon is a San Francisco Bay Area psychiatrist who discovered street photography a decade ago and established himself as one of the most influential and creative practitioners of the craft. His work is striking, contemporary, and often surreal, and he has an uncanny knack for capturing absurdity, ambiguity, and subtle humor. His photos have been included in numerous publications, have won international awards, and been exhibited around the world. He is a member of Burn My Eye, a collective of well-known contemporary street photographers.

Take advantage of this unprecedented opportunity to shoot with Jack on his home turf in this intensive two-day workshop. This workshop will feature classroom time as well as shooting in the streets with Jack and extensive in-the-field instruction. The workshop will conclude with discussion and critique of the photos taken over the weekend. This class is limited to 12 students and is expected to sell out.
