NEW STREET AGENDA, Berlin, June 12 – 15, 2014

New Street Aganda, June 12-15, 2014

New Street Aganda, June 12-15, 2014

Some of you know that the first workshop based on Street Photographer’s Toolbox was held in Berlin in June 2013.

Since then many things have happened.

In 2014 we are not only in a position to make an even more interesting workshop, but we dare even call it New Street Agenda.

Why do we call it New Street Agenda?

Simply because it is a new agenda for street photography.

We are breaking new ground. You can be in it from the start.

What you will experience in this workshop you may have heard of as bits and pieces, but never in this combination and related to any form of photography, hereunder street photography. It is plain useful information, and basically it is common sense made operational.

Yes, common sense come rare these days. Particularly if it is backed by research.

Be cautioned that this not a workshop that teaches you how to fix a lens to an expensive camera or how to calm down strangers after you have flashed them in the face.

This is a whole different setup.

Our attitude to street photography is very, very  different. If you borrow images from the street you should pay people back with a value that is even higher. After all you are only visiting people’s lives and their ways. If they let you.

You do that by taking great photographs and by behaving accordingly. 

Here is what we do: We address how knowledge and experience within visual communication work in street photography. This will teach you to be more precise in your photography. You will acquire new tools to improve your street photography.

Plenty of them.

Once you start this kind of thinking you will be in it for life.  Your new knowledge will effect your day to day life also in areas not related to photography, because what is valid in photography is also valid for life. After all both are actors on the same scene. There is no mystery in this at all.

The final program for  New Street Agenda will be ready over Christmas 2013.

New Street Agenda, by the way is not a project, it is a process. You will start long before Berlin and linger on after. There is “homework” to go with it.

The structure of the program will not be that different from last year, but the content will be different. It will include elements from last year, though.

Here you can read The Overall Agenda and the Draft Program from 2013. It will give a relevant background for New Street Agenda in Berlin in June 2014.

There are testimonials on the very front page of this site. Read what Elisabeth, Tony and Robert have to say.

If you are on Facebook, you should become a member of On Every Street: The Academy. That would work as a great foreplay to New Street Agenda in June 2014.

Here are the some general resources you may want to look into: Street Photographer’s Toolbox (this site); Phenomenology and Photography; and Barebones Communication.

You don’t want to read all of that. Just take a glance. You will find even more resources if you look in here.

Be aware that New Street Agenda will only take 8 participants. Some places are already taken.

The workshop will include 5 individually coached sessions handled on email in the period April and May 2014.

The idea is that all basic preparation are done before Berlin so we can use the time there for photography, discussions and having an enjoyable time. Good time and good company is definitely a part of taking good photographs.

Normally it works :-).

The workshop fee is € 800.00.  You need to arrange travel, accommodation on your own, as well as you carry your own costs when in Berlin.

I will be helpful with accommodation if asked too.
