New Orleans Street Photography Workshop

June 26, 2021 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Street photography Workshop New Orleans

Zack Smith Photography’s “New Orleans Street Photography Workshop” will teach you how to tell the story of the street through it’s architecture, people, music, and light as we observe and create in The French Quarter, French Market, and Historic Treme neighborhood of New Orleans. In this course we will discuss and photograph together the exciting elements of street documentary: establishing shots, visual storylines, candid portraits and engaging portraits, as well as close up detail scenes that help tell the complete story of our narrative.

Safety and Social Distancing

In order to keep all workshop participants safe, we will limit this workshop to 7 people and will meet at a safe and open area. Zack will wear a mask the whole time when instructing w/in 6 feet. We will visit open air establishments, shoot in ways that are safe and CREATIVE! I’ve taught a few workshops in the COVID atmosphere and I have made the experience one we won’t forget!


We will be walking the streets of New Orleans observing and photographing vignettes of daily street life. As we see the city and it’s people interact, Zack will help you find your own unique story and angle on how to document this wonderful historic area. We will spend most of our time in the French Quarter as Zack gives instructions on street photography through how to photograph candid portraits, architecture, shadows, and more. Be prepared to walk 2-3 miles, but taking breaks.


This street documentary workshop is designed for the beginner to the serious photographer wanting to improve their knowledge of natural light photography, architectural photography, mixed light portraits and the gear used. We will work on “How to See Like the Camera”,“Perfecting Depth of Field”, and “How to Approach Strangers and Make Friends”. 

Attendees are to know how to use their camera, as well as understand basic camera operation including setting f/stops and shutter speeds, and Zack will help you with how to apply those settings to our scenes. The workshop will provide all lighting gear, reflectors, and light modifiers for use by all participants. We will also have a knowledgeable support staff that will help you with any photography related questions you have.


I suggest only to bring what you can comfortably want around and shoot with. Most people bring a backpack or sling with one camera body and 2-3 lenses ranging from super wide, 50mm, to telephoto. You will be in touch with Zack prior to the workshop for any questions you have.


All cancellations must be done within 30 days to receive a full refund. Within 30 days you have the opportunity to use your credit towards another workshop within the year if space provides. If you can replace someone with your spot, there is 100% refund.


We have great relationships with local Bed and Breakfasts and locally owned Air B&B’s that offer discounts to participants in Zack Smith’s workshops. Please email Zack for more info – zack@zacksmith.com
