Photos from the Los Angeles workshop Attendees!

Hello to all! Sorry for the delay in the updates today…I was in beautiful Sedona AZ with my fiancé for the weekend and just arrived back home. I wanted to share with everyone some photos shot by a few of the Los Angeles workshop attendees as there were some truly great images captured. This was the BEST workshop yet with amazing presentations, a great group and amazing food 🙂 Looking forward to the next!

For those who attended who do NOT see your images here, send me an e-mail with 2-3 of your best shots.


Without further ado, here are the images!

  1. Steve, these are great! Looks like you guys had a blast on this workshop. I must say the most interesting images from your students are not from the Leica camp. Great material here.

  2. Sorry guys,

    40 photos and only 12 keepers (max!at least for me).

    Maybe I missed something or maybe I have to attend a workshop…

    Best regards

  3. Hey stever, now that your engaged to a chi-town girl, whats the plan, you moving north or is she coming south?

  4. A beautiful model, superb presentations, great comedian and an unbelievable new lens to shoot………oh, and you get the chance to hang with likeminded togs and shoot street!!! So, so envious….love it.

    • Lol, oops! Me and one of my famous typos! It was a $200 gift card. 2nd place prize was an Artisan and Artist camera bag, and third place was a Street Strap camera strap.

    • Dave Grady is from Sydney, and flew over early to attend the workshop. He was somewhat speechless when he won the $200 gift card, but I believe he had something on order from B&H before the workshop was over!!! For all of Steve’s Australian fans you will be happy to know that Dave represented your country well at the Sheraton Bar every evening, where we sampled the finest in California micro brews.

      It would be great if Steve offered more workshops around the world, but regardless there are airplanes flying around the world every day. You just have to get on one!!!

  5. I must say — and I’ve entirely no idea who Alexander Getty is — but that last name must carry quite some pressure in the photography world. 🙂

    Anyway, great photos from all!

  6. That was just a really nice and poignant photo essay of L.A. street life. “Life is but a walking shadow, who struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more…”
