Designed to bring new focus to the long-practiced art of street photography, these exciting online photography classes guide photographers to make interesting and creative photographs of street life, wherever in the world that may be.  Join internationally aclaimed street photographer, "Akash," to become a more astute observer of life around you, as well as a photographer practicing one of the most popular genres of photography available to all, today.  Akash has the experience and skils to take you there.  Join him, camera-in-hand, and take it to the street!

Roaming streets and byways in search of dramatic photos has been around since the start of compact 35mm cameras. Raised to a photographic genre by Cartier-Bresson and generations of inspired photographers after him, "Street Photography" remains as much an accepted genre today, as it ever has been. But followed seriously, street-shooting should land its practitioner more than just a collection of unrelated images. It should exhibit thematic, focus-visual intent. This 4-lesson and assignment online photography course taught by internationally acclaimed street photographer, G.M.B. Akash, is designed to point you in just such a direction. Whether you're aiming to publish your work on the web or elsewhere, enter photo competitions or just to satisfy your own photographic interest, these online photography lessons and their related hands-on assignments will both challenge you and suprise you - as to just how good a street photographer you can be.  Includes Skype Consultation with Instructor.
