  • STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WITH ALEX COGHE

    Shooting the streets with Alex Coghe !You will learn to use the camera quickly in different candid situations with an experienced street photographer (film, digital, color and black and white). Alex Coghe regularly teaches workshops with a Leica camera and his work has been selected and published internationally.

    Yes, Alex Coghe, Internationally renowned street photographer has worked for Leica realizing the People of Chapultepec project published in the catalog of the prestigious and historic photographic brand.

    Through the street photography workshops and the street photography days you will have the opportunity to meet and work with an expert street photographer that will give you tips and tricks to help you improve your street photography, finding your style and your vision, helping you to achieve the success in your work as a photographer.

    Alex proposes the lessons as a method and a different approach to photography that can be applied to all other genres, even the most commercial photography.

    "During this workshop my students have the opportunity to absorb knowledge about street photography, with particular attention to the composition and the technical aspects of photography and at the same time they will receive a rare opportunity to observe a street photographer at work ...

    I am currently using a Leica X2 and a Ricoh GRD IV. But with my workshops and days on the street the students will learn that the model and the brand, digital or film camera, does not matter at all. Beginners, advanced amateurs and professionals are welcome to join me in this workshop because this course is tailored to your skill level.

    The participants to my workshops and days on the street come from all over the world (USA, AUSTRALIA, JAPAN, ITALY, ETC.) and their skill levels ranging from absolute beginner to professional photographers, street photographers, wedding photographers, photojournalists, fashion photographers. - Alex Coghe

    A different approach to photography

    Street Photography

    is more a method than

    a genre - Alex Coghe

  • STREET PHOTOGRAPHY WITH ALEX COGHE

    !If you are a beginner or an experienced photographer who wants to get more from your photography and if you want to get a different approach to achieve high visual impact photos with a story, then a workshop or a Street Photography Day is for you.

    !Mexico City is a diverse city in every street, full of old buildings, such as the Centro Historico but also modern skyscrapers. The city is full of culture, full of d i f f e r e n t a n d i n t e r e s t i n g characters and there is no doubt that we can find and photograph a v a r i e t y o f s i t u a t i o n s , documenting the surreal soul of Mexico. That is why Mexico City is one of the best ciudadeds for street photography.

    !"During the time with me I'll show you what have to keep in mind while you're on the street, how to set your camera to more consistent results, and what techniques you can use to capture the decisive moment." - Alex Coghe

    !By attending a workshop or a day with me you will also be able to be part of a growing community of street photographers and meet others who share your interest in street photography.

    !The workshops can be basic, intermediate or advanced. The Street Photography Days are real photo tours, completely personalized based on the student profile that I make before the workshop. We can arrange shooting in barrios (popular neighborhoods) for advanced photographers. With me you will know the real Mexico, with the opportunity to photograph and discover places far away from the usual tourist routes. You will have the opportunity to know more about Mexico and Mexicans. And and why not? Also appreciating good Mexican food.
