This is a course in street photography, documentary style, in which students will learn how to make their own series in spontaneous or more conceptual style.

There will be input by talking about techniques, viewpoint, composition and how to achieve your goals; a series of good photos. How to work on a project, your visual signature. You 'll learn theory, review the pictures and will practice on the street.

Before the first lesson, I send you movies of famous street photographers, theory and input about mapping. During the whole course I send you movies, tips and assignments.

Lesson 1 By showing our pictures, we will get to know each other, a short lecture about some knowledge's; camera, light, composition, storytelling, ways of working etc. After the input we start with mapping for our own project.

Lesson 2 and 3 starts with the work of different photographers and discuss their way of working. You will get tips and tricks concerning working in public spaces. We continue mapping and every student proposes about the project he or she wants to do.

Weekend day 1, we will visit an photo exhibition and we make photo tour with assignments.

Lesson 4 we will be on the street again, probably in Scheveningen harbor. The practice is to work with speed-light, a combination with long exposure and flash.

Weekend day 2 we will go out on the street, The Hague city center, to make a set of photos with a theme.

Lesson 5 we review the pictures and discuss our project.

Weekend day 3 and 4, we visit a city of our choice and work on your own theme.

Lesson 6, we review your project, pictures and assignments. We will be showing and evaluation of the work, selecting and ordering for the exhibition, and a talk about the way we're gonna do a presentation at the school (projection, prints, book e.g.).
