Small group workshops

Street Club

Check out London's best street photography Meetup: STREET CLUB (formerly know as London Street Photography

I organise and host 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!

Workshop feedback

Alyson

"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.

Bruno

"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 Street Club.

Bettina

"Polly is incredibly friendly, encouraging and has a passion for what she does. The session itself was absolutely fantastic. With a series of exercises and immediate feedback and support this was an outstanding experience. It truly changed my view and I had to step out of my comfort zone a couple of times. The day with Polly was a real boost to my confidence and very inspirational. I can absolutely recommend Polly. 5 stars!"

- Bettina booked me for a 1:1 photography workshop.

Kat

"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…

- Kat attended a street photography weekend workshop in Lisbon with Street Club. 


Portfolio Reviews

Curating and critiquing your own work is one of the toughest jobs for a photographer! And often beginner photographers overlook great shots or don't know why an image isn't working. I have reviewed over 1000 images from workshop attendees and can offer constructive criticism, help you understand what makes photograph a "keeper" and give you advice as to what to focus on next! These sessions are more ideally suited to beginners or intermediate photographers. Let me help you!
