We’ve all heard of street art tours. Their very existence as a tourist attraction shows just how big street art has become over recent years and how wide its appeal has grown. Whilst many view some of the street art tours as parasitic, our friend NoLionsInEngland has something completely different to offer for the budding street art photographer.
NoLions has been at it for years and has put in some serious hours documenting London’s ever changing graffiti and street art landscape. You may well be familiar with his blog Graffoto – one of the best reads on the internet for the discerning vicarious street art voyeur.
Now Mr NoLions is sharing some of the knowledge he has picked up over time by offering Street Art Photography Workshops. A series of 3-hour long events encompassing a “classroom” tutorial and photographic tour/mooch around the streets of Shoreditch aimed at helping you hone your skills as the next NoLionsInEngland!
So whether you carry a phone, a compact or a SLR, there will be some top tips on composition and how to get that perfect shot.
The upcoming dates are as follows:
Sat 22 June, Sat 29 June, Sat 6 July all starting at 11am from Top Office Machines, 133 Bethnal Green Road, London E2 7DG.
