The day will start at 10.30am and conclude at 16.30pm with a break for lunch and plenty of comfort breaks throughout the day, most of the day will be out on the streets. There is a lot of walking during the day and the event may take place in inclement weather so come prepared.
You will spend the day with Fujifilm X Photographer Matt Hartand the Edinburgh Street Photographer Ami Strachan exploring the streets picking up tricks and tips on Matt’s and Ami’s styles of Street Photography.
Matt’s Street photography workshops and courses are fun, informative and relaxed. They are both challenging and highly enjoyable and designed to stretch your imagination.
Ami’s Street photography workshops are also relaxed and very entertaining.
Together Ami and Matt have contrasting styles of Street Photography but they work very well together, so you get the best of both worlds.
Matt uses the Fuji X100F and XPro2 with a 23mm or 16mm Prime lens.
Ami uses the X100T

The day normally starts at 10.30am with a coffee introductions and a discussion about the day. Matt will be giving a two hour talk on Street Photography in the morning and will touch on the ethics and law and how to deal with challenges in this area.
Next he will discuss camera set up for the day and the best set up for street photography with a practical demonstration of street camera technique.
Matt will cover what Street Photography is, and show you some of his favourite Street Photographers images. He will also show you the best way to approach his style of Street photography.
We normally spend around two hours covering these subjects then around 12.30am we head straight out on to the streets where you can watch the way Ami and Matt work and try out some of the tips and tricks that they share with you.
We break for lunch around 1.30pm where we can find a quiet place for a snack to discuss the mornings work and share our experiences.
We then go back out on the streets to practice your new street techniques and try and find your street rhythm and look for some interesting characters or great light!
We stay out shooting until about 4pm, we then find a quiet place to sit as a group to discuss the day and this will include lessons learnt. Matt will share his processing techniques and preferred software. Matt and Ami will give you their views on Critique and show you how to review your own work.
