Through consideration of the art form’s origins and his own experiences, Neal will explain how street photography can be a powerful tool for self-discovery. Together, we’ll put this to the test in a photowalk around Stirling’s streets.
Bring a camera, comfortable shoes and an open mind.
The workshop will begin and end at Made in Stirling, Creative Stirling’s new hub.
Minimun age 16 years.
