Life On the Street: document photography workshop
“A good photo is knowing where to stand” Ansel Adams
In this free workshop, photographer and filmmaker Carl Joyce will help you find your feet as a street photographer by sharing his knowledge of documentary photography and his capacity to stand his ground.
Over the course of this one-day workshop Carl will:
- Help you plan your own photoshoot. You will explore street themes, storylines, feelings and impacts
- Enhance your ability to take amazing street photos. You will consider what to look for, what to avoid, composition, use of light and dark, being creative in telling your story
- Help you make the most of your cameras and phones by looking at how to make the most of settings and lenses to make great documentary images
- Cover the basics of photo editing and the use of free phone apps
- talk about his own work and share insights into how he has generated income from his art.
The workshop will take place on the street of Bishop Auckland creating a great backdrop to hone your skills.
Carl’s documentary photography and filmmaking practice is based in Durham. Carl graduated with honours from Sunderland University with a BA in photography, video and digital imagery in 2017. Over the past 10 years he’s worked with artists and organisations across the UK to help tell the stories of people and communities that inhabit the margins of our society, from refugees and asylum seekers in Stoke, to a Bangladeshi community in Rochdale, and former coal miners in Sunderland. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and his debut documentary film ‘The School on Seaside Lane’ will be released this autumn.
Carl sees photography as an inherently powerful tool in weaving narratives which he brings together with deep research to create and communicate his stories.
The workshop is free. Refreshments, lunch and lighting materials will be provided.
