People, cafes, vendors, street merchants, buskers, historic buildings, art installations and much more. The power of observation underpins the art of great street photography. Learning to "see" interesting detail is a practised skill and we introduce you to easy methods that will open your photographer's eye and expose you to a world that is alive with detail. The most rewarding part of the class is learning how to approach interesting people and have them willingly pose for you.

    Jason did an excellent job of slowing down the process of HOW to shoot street photography in Manhattan. He watched the way we shot and gave useful feedback to us accordingly. He also took the the time with set ups, camera settings and how to shoot and move in a crowd. I'd be happy to go out with him again. He made it fun!

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
