Join me for a street photography workshop in and around the Rastro market. This lively area of La Latina is an ideal location to improve your street photography technique and take candid shots of madrileños in their element in one of Madrid’s most vibrant neighborhoods. To begin, we'll meet up at a café in the city center for a complementary coffee or tea. You may be wondering, should I ask for permission? What camera settings should I use? How can I get street photos that are more than just random snapshots? I'll give a brief presentation to share the tips and techniques that have helped me to articulate my vision and capture decisive moments, and will answer any questions you may have regarding the technical or artistic aspects of street photography. Then we'll hit the streets. I'll show you around the best parts of La Latina to expand your street photography toolkit while enjoying an essential element of Madrid’s culture. After the walking tour, you'll have the opportunity to email me your five best shots from the workshop within the following week in order to receive individualized feedback.
I'm an American photographer based in Madrid, Spain. I specialize in film, street and portrait photography. I got started in film photography in 2005, and have continued to practice my craft while living in Northern Virginia (U.S.), Montreal (Canada), and in Madrid (Spain) which has been my home since 2012. I find inspiration in the curious characters and spontaneous charm of Madrid’s streets, and am passionate about sharing my love of photography with others.

We'll begin the workshop at a café in downtown Madrid where I will share tips to help you experiment and expand on your street photography skills. Afterwards, I'll take you to the best plazas and street corners in La Latina to take candid photos in and around the Rastro market.
