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!
