Street Portland, with Michael Schoenholtz

Hit the streets with Michael and Joni as they teach you how to approach subjects, deal with varying lighting situations, and capture compelling compositions. Be a part of building a makeshift outdoor studio to capture portraits of people we meet along the streets!

This class is also great for anyone who is planning to travel to countries where language poses a communication gap, as techniques will be covered concerning communication sans words.

Friday evening:  Meet/greet and go over tips for working on the streets, approaching people, lighting, composition and general preparation
Saturday: We hit the streets!  We split into different groups then switch instructors after lunch.
Sunday:  We review our images. We talk about the experiences and challenges we had, share stories, and look at what everyone captured. Truly a wonderful time.

All levels and camera types welcome!

Fee:  $300 ($50 discount for repeat street workshop participants)

My expectations were blown away. The amount of time I was able to spend 1-1 with the instructors was great. It was great to come without any experience and I still felt very welcome. I can’t wait to see what happens next with my new found hobby!” Kyle E.
