About the workshop

Occasionally I organise street photography workshops for beginners and intermediate level photographers who wish to learn how to approach this photography genre and need inspiration.
The workshop is focused on: aesthetics, the specifics of street photography, photographing together with the students, how to choose the best images.
For photographers who struggle with the technical aspects of using the camera, I can offer my advice on how to make it simple and effective.
The content of the workshop revolves around essential aspects of street photography and uses lots of images to exemplify the theory.

  1.  Course content:
    • what is street photography?
    • aesthetics: composition in street photography; simple vs complex compositions
    • visual hierarchy
    • colour vs b/w
    • colour combinations
    • how to use the light we get on the street
    • methods and ideas to start from
    • getting in the right mindset when taking pictures
    • candid street photography
    • examples of how I obtained some of my best shots
  2. Practice:
    • photo walk with the group where we can photograph together and I can provide feedback to each student 
  3. Review:
    • feedback on students’ images and choosing the best photos
    • customised ideas of improvement for each student 
  4. Resources:
    • links, books

I think I should also thank Alex in this way for the experience he gave me. I finish the workshop much more satisfied than I expected to be and with a lot of learned things, many and diverse. For me, patience is very important and the fact that he can adapt to everyone’s needs, that he does not consider good and bad, and that he teaches and shows us the principles he knows. It’s an experience I want to repeat, and I think it’s worth trying for anyone who wants to see other things while walking.

In this workshop, Alex shares his passion and extensive knowledge about street photography, in a well-organized, intensive course, with a lot of theoretical, practical and photographic criticism information.

I liked the structure of the theory, where each topic was accompanied by examples of photos of the great masters and where I consulted photo albums and other online resources, very useful.

The practical part was just as intense. I explored the city, practiced different compositions, looked for the best light and new subjects. The final selection of photos also helped me, with constructive criticism and clear motivations about what is worth keeping.

Alex has the qualities of a teacher and sincerely wants you to have the best results. The fact that he works with a small group of people allows him to give the students all the necessary attention. I recommend this course and I am sure that it can be useful to many people, regardless of the type of photography they practice.

In 2018, when I wanted to learn more about street photography, I participated in a one-to-one workshop with the photographer Alexandru Ilea. What came out after a week of photography in Tblisi Georgia, I can say that they are among the best images I have obtained.
