Let me teach you!
Check out London's best street photography Meetup (run by me!): LONDON STREET PHOTOGRAPHY If you are starting out in street photography or just want to meet and hang out with other street photographers then this is the group for you. I organise short workshops in London; days out to places like Hastings, West Wittering and Dungeness; and awesome street photography weekends in kick ass European cities! I believe that street photography workshops should be affordable and accessible so you don't need much dosh or a Leica - just a few quid, one good eye and something that can shoot pictures!
Since its inception the group has grown into a little community that attracts a great bunch of friendly photographers who keep coming back for more. Each Meetup is in workshop format with themed mini projects where it's all about composition and creativity, rather than the technical side, so you can start shooting with your phone! We start with photography and end in a pub for a bit of a social. And I always give feedback on work uploaded to the group page after each workshop. Join us!
Are you looking for some individual attention? Let me know what you need and I can tailormake a session for you. Choose from a few hours or a whole day somewhere in London so you can really flex those creative composition muscles. I will push you out of your comfort zone, help you see street photography opportunities and teach you how to compose cool shots! It'll be fun. Drop me a line and we can start plotting.

Some rave reviews about the workshops...
"Jenny and I had an amazing day on a street photography workshop with Polly Rusyn yesterday! Polly is fantastic fun and an engaging teacher for anyone interested in learning about photography!! Thank you Polly!!"
- Alyson booked me for a private photography workshop as a gift for her sister.
"I attended quite a few meetings organized by Polly, and I confess that I find them very addictive :-) The formula is just perfect, with "assignments" that are always very interesting and challenging, but at the same time suitable for any level of experience. Her examples are always very inspiring, and she's also helpful with hints and advice during the session and on the photos we post later. Above all, however, the most valuable part is the friendly environment that Polly is able to create every time, making you feel in a group of good friends sharing the same passion."
- Bruno is a regular at my street photography Meetups.
"Polly sets great assignments to stretch creativity in composition. The group is very welcoming. I immediately felt comfortable and am constantly amused with the timely banter. I leave with new insights into street photography and come mid week, feel myself itching to return. What a revelation!"
- Geri is a regular at my street photography Meetups.
"What an absolutely fabulous weekend this was!! I had very high expectations before we went, but they were all easily exceeded within first few hours. Lots of laughs, lovely people, perfect location, the best guide (even if the food spilling was embarrassing at times), lovely food, the soap, all the pastel de nata and great photography projects. Thank you Polly for the seamless and fun bossying around, it was packed but we definitely got to see the best parts of the city. I'm still buzzing and I wish we had longer…”
