Seattle Photographers Hit The Streets

Learn how to shoot the city from an urban art legend.

Calling all photographers – yes, even you, the Facebook profile master self-portraitist.  Seattle Street Shots Studio invites amateur shutterbugs in Seattle to learn from world-renowned street photographer, Eric Kim.

A SoCal native, Kim has made a name for himself in the world of street photography since. Rather than snapping romantic photos of sunsets or gardenias, Kim hits the streets to capture the art of everyday life. His travels have taken him to Paris, London, Rome, Prague, Beirut and Seoul, among other worldwide cities. Now, he plans to share some industry tips with aspiring street photographers — or “streettogs, as he calls them — in the Emerald City.

This dynamic two-session, three-week workshop will kick off at 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 11. Attendees will eat dinner together and discuss the finer points of street photography; the class will conclude as each student receives a photography assignment, to be completed within two weeks.

At the second session, the class will be joined by Kim via Skype after dinner. Each student will submit their best three images from the previous two weeks, and Kim will discuss each entry during an extensive workshop session. The best three will be featured in the Street Shots Studio for the First Thursday Art Walk in February. Those enrolled in the workshop will also receive course handouts, membership in student-only forums and a discount of 10 percent discount for gallery wall space.

Enrollment in the class ($135 per student) is available online.
