The “Develop Your Street Photography Style” 4-day street photography workshop with In-Public‘s David Gibson will be a unique opportunity to explore the history, aesthetics and practicalities of street photography while challenging you to expand and fully explore your own individual style.

Combining both theory and on-the-street photography practice on the colorful streets of Hamra, this diverse street photography workshop will enable you to put your skills to the test followed by a group review of your best shots taken.

Bring your portfolio of 10 printed photos for a special one-on-one review session with David Gibson where you’ll have a chance to ask further questions and get more personal feedback about your work. The workshop will be limited to 16-18 participants.

All participants who complete the 4-day workshop will also be receiving a printed certificate signed by David Gibson.


David Gibson is one of the founding members of in-public, the international collective of street photographers. His work has been widely published and exhibited, including recently at the FORMAT festival in Derby and currently at The Museum of London in the UK. He is also featured in the Thames and Hudson book, Street Photography Now, an anthology of 52 leading street photographers around the world.

David holds an MA in Photography: History and Culture from the University of the Arts in London and has led street photography workshops at Tate Liverpool and also at Tate Modern and Photofusion in London. David recently led a 5-day workshop in Athens, Greece and there are more workshops planned in other countries in 2011.

The requirements for participating is intermediate photography skills, a digital camera (DSLR recommended) and an interest in street photography. This workshop will be focussing more on style rather than photography technicalities, so we recommend you already have some prior basic experience taking photos in the streets.

The workshop is not concerned with differentiating between “beginners” or “advanced” street photographers and all will be welcome within a supportive group atmosphere of like-minded photographers.

If you also currently have ideas and street photography projects you’d like to pursue but find yourself lacking direction, this workshop is for you for further guidance on how to realise them.
