Join us for a two day workshop focused on the practice of Street Photography with Steve Bollman at the Leica Store in Washington D.C.
When it comes to making successful images that stand the test of time, the photographers Practice is everything! The moment you click the shutter occurs in a fraction of a second, but the work of taking lasting photos happens well before. In this workshop we will take to the streets and explore ways to connect with your authentic voice. We will discuss the process of taking photos in a new way that will bring you closer to your subjects and empower you to make better photos. As a group we will “compare notes” and get clear about what works and what doesn’t and come up with strategies to hone your photo taking process. There will be time to critique work and develop ideas on the street.
Topics covered include:
- Developing a photographic practice
- Tuning up your voice
- Gear and tricks
- Solving the mystery
- Rigor and the personal challenge

Steven Bollman (born NYC, 1961)
takes B+W photos, mostly shooting film, to record ordinary people in extraordinary moments. He is fascinated with the moody human drama of in-between moments that typically go unseen. Bollman graduated from The School of Visual Arts in 1983.
A self-published photo book, entitled, Almost True, came out in January 2018. Thirty years in the making, but covering just a few seconds in real time, published by F8 Books. The nine narratives included in Almost True were taken in Cuba during Fidel Castro’s time, at religious processions in Sicily, and during the elections in Haiti in 1987, as well as photos from New York, Oakland, Santa Fe, Spain, Italy, and Portugal.
