Matt Hart is a Fujifilm X Photographer who has been exploring street photography for over 40 years. Matt will give a two and a half hour talk on candid street photography with the aim of giving you the confidence to go out and explore, armed with the knowledge that has helped him to become a professional in this field. Matt will look at the masters of street and, how projects can help you develop your style, and teach you to critique your own work.
Matt will also be leading a photo walk. Photo walks are a perfect opportunity to develop your travel and street photography skills. We will take in the quirky vibrant parts of each city with the best possible opportunities for candid environmental street photography. We will go from vibrant city streets to more run down urban areas, where we can show you how to capture striking shots in varying light. We will show you how to develop your eye to view the city in a whole new way and think outside of the box for photographic opportunities that come your way.
The schedule for the day:
10am - 12.30pm Morning Talk: Understanding Street Photography with Matt Hart
1.30pm - 4.30pm Afternoon Walk: Wex Walkabout: Street Photography with Matt Hart
What is a walkabout?
Walkabouts offer you the opportunity to get out and about with your camera, meet up with your local photographic community and learn a few new skills whilst you’re at it. Every month, the Wex team will be at a new venue with a different lead photographer, focusing on a different subject with a unique set of challenges. Walkabouts are all about enjoying and developing your photographic hobby in a relaxed, informal environment.
Unlike our photography workshops, Wex Walkabouts are completely informal, have no minimum group size and are not dependent on your ability or gear – wherever possible, we will bring along a range of kit you can borrow. All you need is your DSLR or compact system camera and some clothing suitable for the great outdoors. There are no specific steps or learning outcomes; the walkabouts will give you the challenge of a new environment and a new subject, all supported by an experienced pro photographer.
Regardless of your skill level or kit, Wex Walkabouts are for you – whether you want to try something new or just meet other likeminded enthusiasts!
In 2018 a minimum of £5 from every ticket will be donated to our chosen charity of the year. This ticket price also covers any entry fees for the sites we visit as part of our Walkabouts. If you’d like to know more about this or our chosen charity, please don’t hesitate to email firstname.lastname@example.org
