street photography conversations

Julia Coddington and I are hosting a series of street photography conference calls in 2018.


Social platforms are great for showing our work and for day-to-day interactions, but they are not so good for deeper and more detailed conversations. Speaking directly to each other in real time is always a better approach, especially for discussions on complicated or controversial topics. 

So for this project, we are hosting a series of conversations on street photography, with a focus on creative and practice topics. The conference calls will occasionally include a presentation by an interesting photographer, followed by questions and discussion. And sometimes we will discuss our collective experiences as street photographers and talk about the street photography community itself. 

Participant numbers are limited and the calls are (gently) moderated, so the conversations have a better chance of staying on-topic. 

We hope that as we get used to meeting this way, better relationships and more meaningful conversations will develop! 

Other stuff

  • The calls are free. You just pay for a call to your country dial in number (see below). The number, and the time you should call, are included in the invitation email we send you.
  • Because we all live in different parts of the world, inevitably some people will be calling in at less convenient times of the day (or night!). We'll try to make that as equitable as possible through the year, so that not every call will happen at 2am where you are.
  • Invitations to attend any particular call are at our discretion. Calls will be limited to about 15 people to keep them manageable.
  • We will try to ensure there is a diversity of voices on each call, and to make sure that that everyone who has registered gets to participate as often as possible.
