Description

Considered “one of the best” street photographers in the world by BBC News, Nick Turpin’s passion for the lens developed at an early age. After leaving university, he spent seven years as a photographer with The Independent. In 2000, he founded the international street photographer’s group, iN-PUBLiC - an institution that has played a major role in the resurgence of interest in the approach to street photography.

An experience with Nick will weave in and out of London history, looking at the past and present of the city through the street lens. Imagine looking into your camera and seeing London - today’s bustling streets and life - then looking away and seeing London, as it appeared in the past. This established photographer will help you see the extraordinary in the every day; he will teach you to be attentive enough to make the most out of the street setting to produce great images.

Starting at The British Museum, make your way south via Charing Cross Road, Chinatown, Piccadilly Circus and down to Trafalgar Square. As you snap away, Nick will show you some iconic images of the streets over the centuries. By comparing the images on your camera to those from the past, notice how the streets have remained the stage for social, historical and political plays to unravel every day. The images you capture will contribute to the continuation of this historical record.

This experience encourages you to increase your confidence in photographing candidly in public places, allowing you to grow your own unique voice as a photographer.
