From Street to Portrait with Bert Stephani & Kevin Mullins

From Street to Portrait with Bert Stephani & Kevin Mullins


Capture, incorporate and recreate the surprising beauty of the street

Current Dates

18th April 2019 - Central London (Spaces)

Even the best trained eye keeps being surprised by what the street can give you: spectacular light, fabulous poses, ingenuous compositions and vibrant energy.

It often gives you more than what you could come up with yourself. In this workshop we’ll focus on learning how to capture this unexpected beauty and we will take it a step further by using it as an inspiration to create contemporary portrait, fashion and commercial images.

In the morning we'll meet up for coffee and a short briefing.

We then hit the streets to master different techniques and approaches to street photography.

After lunch we’ll combine street photography with portraiture. The days of fake perfection are over, people want to look at pictures that are honest and believable. We are going to use the streets as our setting and our muse to create our own original work with a model.

We'll cover finding interesting light, flash techniques, making balanced compositions, directing any subject, working with movement and how to use the unexpected to your advantage.

This workshop is a creative roller-coaster that connects street photography with other genres of photography. It’s about broadening your vision, thinking outside the box and creating based on the raw beauty of life.
