What you'll do

In a 30 minute meeting at a park in Hollywood- or a hotel cafe, if weather does not permit- I quickly learn about your experience levels and questions and then share my own insights into what street photography is about, from my own experience shooting over 2000 street photos and from studying masters of the art form. You will discover new ways of thinking about this unique art form and what being a photographer means to you. We will spread out within a few block radius and spend 90 minutes shooting. We then reconvene at a spacious hotel lobby cafe and share each other's photographs, on our cameras and my laptop and iPad. I spend an hour with the group, giving feedback on your work and answering questions. By the end of this experience, you will know more about photography, about L.A., about engaging with total strangers. Learn to let go, have fun and engage deeply with the world around you! Street photography is a visceral, fun, challenging experience unlike any other art form. It changed my life and I hope our time together helps you take your photography to another level.

Michael

In 2014, I struck out as a street photographer in L.A. to radically change my life. On IG, my gallery, @EverybodyGetsShotInLA, quickly was recognized for capturing a very L.A. aesthetic and vibe, a new culture of freethinking, young people and artists expressing themselves in the most unexpected ways. Youth culture, urban madness and unique people are my focus. I have a special ability to connect with total strangers and make them part of my artistic process. It thrills me to help photographers at all levels push their own limits by engaging with this intense art form. I share my approach, but It's about learning how to find your own way, your own "voice." I love helping people discover that! My mantra: "The greatest gift you can give someone is a new lens through which to see the world and themselves."

Where you'll be

We meet at a lovely park in Hollywood, steeped in the city's moviemaking history, or at a favorite boutique hotel lobby/cafe that's a "best kept L.A. secret." Each photographer will explore areas within walking distance, the "challenge" being to find great photographic opportunities no matter where you are. "What is a "great" street photography opportunity and where do you find them?" is one of our most important subjects.
