Approaching Strangers

October 12 2019 - October 13 2019

International Center of Photography, 1114 Avenue of the Americas, New York, NY, 10036


Why live in a city of 8 million people if you are not going to talk to any of them?

In this intensive, yet fun, workshop, veteran large-format street photographer, Greg Miller, takes students into the street to directly confront their fears when approaching strangers. Fear of others is a crippling yet very common problem among photographers and can even dictate the trajectory of their career. However, getting up the nerve to speak to people is only half the battle. What do you do with them once you have them in front of you? Miller helps photographers befriend their fears and get to the picture he or she wants, as efficiently as possible, by communicating his or her desires.

The class explores all aspects of photographing people, including fears, boundaries, ethics, model consent forms, and historical context.

Bring your deepest desire to meet the world. All photographic formats are welcome.

Tuition: $400
