Get comfortable with chaos in this freestyle street photography workshop taught by award-winning photojournalist Ed Kashi.
“If the decisive moment reflects reality in tune with the photographer’s intuition, flawlessly combining composition and timing, then the abandoned moment is the consequence of a fractional instant of surrender.”
— Ed Kashi
In this technical and philosophical workshop, you will learn to dance with your camera, navigating challenging scenarios with confidence and nuance. Ed will share his work, photographic approaches, and valuable feedback on your photography as you progress.
