Street Photography Courses
Street photography is generally candid in its nature. Tony Ray-Jones was the first pioneer in this field. You must check him out!
He developed a set of rules for himself, which basically asked him to let things emerge in his frame. This also included having real conversations with people on the street and spending time doing that. The process demands you to be patient with yourself and with the artwork. This in a way is a great way of reconnecting with people and also meditating in some way. You can find out about these rules very simply online!
He had a fascination for reality. And this is the key aspect of street photography. The spirit of nature and the natural always fascinates. This is what the soul of street photography is. The natural just exists. You don’t need to construct it.
You need to be spontaneous. This is a great way of making a good street photograph. It requires one to be unaware of what will arise on frame and go with curiosity and gut instinct. This is what is different in it from documentary photography.
Similarity with Documentary Photography
Documentary photography has long been documenting events, happenings and even protests. Well, given the political times of India today, street photography too is a great form of documenting reality. It informs its viewers from a more journalistic point of view. This is an important way of information too. Today’s news items are bought and sold. This is how we can reclaim our free and true voice once again – by getting onto the streets!
We are an arts community and we really believe in contributing to whatever you need for your well-being. Also we know you are aware of what we need to regain our lost values in our country. And we want to help us do this.
That is why our candid street photography also includes elements of documentary photography. So if you are someone who is looking for artistic sensitivities and skills, our course is for you! This course will help you widen your mental canvas and look beyond the horizon of logic. You will feel and be open to being vulnerable alongside your classmates.
We are an arts community that takes care of each of our family members. They in turn nourish us as well.
A Cultural Bonanza
On a more logistical level, there are many advantages of learning this art form in Bangalore. ‘Street photography india’ is a phrase people greatly search these days. It’s because our country is full of culture. The very diversity that is under threat makes us the most desired country for street photography today.
In our city, ‘pottery town Bangalore’ is another popular phrase too! Tourists love to take candid photographs of the pottery artists. To see so much fresh mud and soil is very refreshing for all the five senses. And all of these five senses can be tickled with a good photograph! These are the skill-sets and the experiences that we plan to design for you!

So street photography is done to have the subject in frame in a very natural way. But it can also be done for everyday objects and to discover their relation with the outside world. Therefore we feel that concepts can emerge and arise depending on what you are looking for. And we are happy to hold the space for you to look, search and discover.
Street photography is all about discovering. It is also about impulse.
Let us explain how.
Imagine you are walking down a street and suddenly have a moment of sixth sense. Something is going to happen. Or maybe you are sipping some hot tea at a roadside tea stall, and you find poetry in the view.
You can take out your phone to capture something. You don’t know what will come up in the frame. But you still take out your phone, make your frame and wait. Hence you wait and you trust. And when the trust reaps itself, you click on impulse. It literally means that you have a pulse of something arising and you go for it! This feeling is what street photography is about.
It is about the poetry in the ordinary. And then it is about trusting and being patient. It is also about taking the plunge!
These are also the skill-sets and we would like to teach you. Therefore if you are ready for a journey to feel and work, you are ready for street photography.
Street photography started out in the history out of fascination. People then created time to fulfill their curiosities. There are many international works online. Abroad, street photographers were fascinated by glass cleaners, farmers and even vegetable sellers. They found poetry in the very act of observing the daily.
There are some other great organizations in Bangalore that work on Street Photography. In fact, places like Toehold in Bangalore have been a great creator in this field of work. We appreciate and respect people who make art for change. And therefore we would also like to work towards this. We are very centrally located in Indiranagar for those of you who don’t want to travel too far from home. We invite you to come join us and work with us to enter the wide world of street photography.
And we can offer you one more additional perk if it makes sense for you. We would also like for you to collaborate with different disciplines that happen under our roof to widen your horizon. We feel cross conversations can often lead to new knowledge and discourse. And discourse in our current times is perhaps the most efficient way to express in an informed manner. And there is a definitely a thin line between street photography and documentary photography. If you would like to, you can blur this line. Mediums are just names.
Right now is the time to unite, come together and stand with compassion, tolerance and care. Hence we invite you for this.
