Cradoc Bagshaw – “The Complete Street Series”

On May 13, Porto Photo Fest co-hosted an Instagram Instawalk event with the talented photographers of IgersPorto and the PortoPhotoFest‘s analogue photography specialist Cradoc Bagshaw. During and after that event, we gathered a lot of feedback about the speed bumps and hurdles of street photography and film cameras, which included:
  • feeling intimidated by photographing strangers;
  • engaging your camera subjects;
  • finding interesting places to photograph people;
  • dealing with harsh lighting conditions.
You spoke. We listened.

We’ve taken your feedback and transformed our Basic Analogue 3-Day Workshop into a series, which maximises flexibility according to your needs, budget, and time. The Complete Street 3-Day Workshop is now designed as a progressive series: whether you attend any one of those days on its own, or take them all (at a discounted bundle price), the skills you learn each day will move you forward to the next stage of photography learning.
So without further ado, we present the new The Complete Street Series:
Day 1: Overcoming Fear – EARLY BIRD JULY DISCOUNT €200
