What you'll do

Learn the basics of street photography - or improve your skills - while taking a tour around one of the world's most beautiful train stations. Document your visit from a perspective that most travelers never see. An excellent place to start your journey as a (street) photographer, or just have a fun photo experience.

Antwerp Central Station is famous, and rightly so. Still, most people never get any further than photographing its lavishly decorated, cathedral-like hall. However, if you like taking beautiful pictures, it has so much more to offer. In fact, Antwerp Central and surroundings are a photographer's dream, particularly suitable for street photography.

I will help you make interesting compositions and creative pics (even if you're a newbie) and explain how you can do street photography even if you fear photographing strangers.

Since the group is limited to two participants, you're guaranteed to get my full attention. If you send me your best images within 7 days after the workshop, you'll also get a review of your work.

A mini workshop perfect for beginners, and with a roof!

I'm a street photographer who has been documenting street life in Antwerp for several years. Whenever I can, I stroll around to capture interesting scenes and unexpected moments of beauty. My work has been featured by US-based Street Photography Magazine as well as Belgian newspaper Gazet van Antwerpen, and photos of mine were nominated for the World Street Photography yearbook. I offer my experiences in English and Dutch.

Where you'll be

We'll first have a coffee and then we're off. I'll take you to the main building as well as the lesser-known corners, corridors and platforms where normally only locals go. You will find beautiful backgrounds, great light and unusual angles for your photos. We will also go outside and see the direct surroundings. I won't bother you with lots of theory, but help where I can. Learning by doing is the best!

I am an amateur photographer almost my whole life, and still, I learned a lot. Marc gave me tips on what to look for, what to see and how to choose my subject. It was very interesting and Marc is an easy person to converse with. I recommend him and his knowledge to every photographer who wants to know more about Street photography.

Heel boeiende ervaring. Heel erg genoten van de workshop. Goeie tips and tricks geleerd. Ik kan iedereen die enigzins geïnteresseerd is in straatfotografie aanbevelen deze workshop te volgen.

Fijne ervaring. Kleine groep (Marc, ik en nog 1 andere persoon) waardoor er veel ruimte was voor persoonlijke tips en feedback. Marc gaat ook in op specifieke vragen. Laat je de schoonheid van het station vastleggen, waar je anders gemakkelijk aan voorbij gaat. Goede prijs - kwaliteit.

Een workshop met Marc betekende voor mij een uitbreiding van zicht krijgen op omgevingsfactoren: hoe je met gebruikmaking van vormen uit de omgeving een foto boeiender maakt. Daarnaast heb ik geleerd me ongeremder op te stellen in het fotograferen van mensen met name door als eerste uit te gaan van compositie waarin vervolgens als vanzelf passanten een plek gaan innemen. Bedankt Marc Hartelijke groet, Meriam

Marc neemt je mee doorheen het Centraal Station - ook op minder gekende plekken - en laat je ervaren hoe je meer uit je foto's haalt door de juiste mensen te zoeken en gebruik te maken van de kwaliteiten van een plek, reflecties, perspectief... Voor een beginnend fotograaf zoals ik was dit een prettige workshop omdat je door de heel kleine groep veel rechtstreekse tips en feedback kan krijgen en gewoon kan zien hoe iemand met meer ervaring het aanpakt. Marc maakte ook ruim de tijd voor ons.
