The workshops offered by the Street Photography International Collective are unique in the sense that they allow access to the knowledge and experience of four respected street photographers over the course of one day.
Workshops attendees are split into groups who work with each SPi member over the course of the day, swapping intermittently. The SPi members each have specialty fields they teach. When combined these cover all aspects of the street photography genre, from candid shooting, composition, overcoming the fear of interacting with strangers, honing black and white and colour skills, online marketing and more.
