with Wendy McDougall 


Typically, street photography is about shooting life in public spaces in a candid style  but street photography does not have to be done just on the streets. You can do this anywhere so this session has a focus on the beach. Maroubra Beach is the destination. With the good instincts and desire to tell a story, street photography can be very rewarding.


Like most things time is needed to master anything. This session is designed to help you understand the basic building blocks of street photography and to inspire you.
