Be BOLD with your camera — learn street photography

Learn the secrets of street photography and tips for taking creative photos from documentary artist, reporter and photo editor of the San Francisco Public Press.

Not for the timid, in this hands-on camera experience, we’ll visit the city’s most crowded locations to take people photos that break the tired old rules of composition, get you to think fast on your feet and see what other people miss. I’ve shared a few of my street photos with you.

This San Francisco experience is for the bold photography enthusiast with a love of documentary. You’ll need to be fit and have your own camera — a point-and-shoot will suffice but a DSLR is best; we shoot fast. Plan to do some walking. See more samples here

Cost includes: Photo tuition. You’ll need to purchase tickets for public city transportation yourself.

Jason is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly! I bought this experience for my sister's 40th birthday and she had an amazing time. She took so many pictures that she had to switch to her iPhone as her DSLR died. He provided an experience, and an expertise, that was worth every penny. A HUGE thanks to Jason for sharing his skill and for ensuring such a memorable birthday for my sister.

Thank you Jason! We had a great time with you people watching in the streets of San Francisco. We learned a lot! We are looking forward to using your tips and tricks for our pics in the future.

I booked the tour/class for me and my daughter (14) who loves photography; she bought her first "serious" camera (Cannon T3i) during the recent holidays. I had my iPhone5 =) .So actually, we were photo newbies! We all showed up on time at the meeting point. Since the very first moment Jason proved to have lots of experience in street photography and showed a lot of patience and charisma in teaching us the basics of how to take of street photos. It was fun and amazing. At the beginning we all shoot in the same direction, our pictures were so-so, his picture was beautiful. We walk through the streets of SF and in a couple of hours, we learned to see and shoot the action in the streets with a different approach and (of course) take better pictures!

Our entire experience with Jason was great and we learned a lot about street photography (we had no experience at all). Jason is a pro and was making suggestions on angles, light, composition and inspiring us to look for interesting shots of people on the street. Communication was very professional and easy from pre-booking all the way to when we met. Jason sent an e-mail in advance with very helpful tips for our tour and followed up with an email after our tour with additional recommendations/information. Great package and experience overall!
