We'll meet at a local cafe hidden in a small laneway where we'll learn some photographic theory, camera (or phone) settings and tips and tricks to apply when it comes to street photography. We'll then set out to explore the streets and alleyways of the Brisbane CBD where I'll show you the best spots to capture striking street photographs.
