Meet Martin – your street photography guide
Offering street photography coaching and personal workshops evolved. I got requests and just started. So I have been teaching photography online and offline since early 2015.
I have experienced teaching to be very rewarding. Inspiring people, helping them to reach the next level makes me happy.
Why should you work with me?
Well, there is the typical credential stuff like:
- international photography awards
- exhibitions around the world
- voted twice among the “20 most influential street photographers”
- co-founder of the berlin1020 street photography collective
- +200k follower on social media
Please find out more on my about page.
Yet I feel this the best reason to work with me:
I love coaching and teaching.
“Martin inspired me to click less yet get more, It was an amazing experience learning under Martin and I highly recommend studying under him if you have the opportunity.”Lily Joplin Noonan
“Martin always struck the right line of challenge and encouragement giving me the motivation to progress. I wouldn’t be half the photographer I am today without his help.”
“I have to praise Martin Waltz as a great teacher and mentor for Street Photography. His feedback was always sharp, assertive and helpful and I was very happy the time he was my instructor.”
How do I prepare?
Send me 10-20 images via wetransfer. Make sure your camera works and you enough spare batteries and memory cards.
What kind of camera do I need?
The camera you enjoy using. Please read my article on the best camera for street photography.
What do I need bring to the street photography workshop?
Comfortable clothing, good shoes, your camera, spare batteries and memory cards. A public transportation day pass AB is recommended (7€ on 7/2017).
Where will we go?
We’ll decide that together. Please see my street photography Berlin guide for possible routes.
What if the weather is bad?
Well, there is no bad weather in street photography. A vast subway net, a great choice of museums and several train stations provide an ample choice of sheltered locations.
How do I pay?
The deposit via wire transfer or paypal. The rest per wire transfer, paypal or cash, when we meet. I need the full payment at the beginning of the street photography workshop.
What is your cancellation policy?
I’ll refund 50% of the deposit on cancellations up to 4 weeks prior to the booked. No refunds after that date. I happily reschedule for free up to four weeks prior to the booked date. Cancellation via email is fine.
What time slots are available?
Basically, 24/7. You like a sunrise tour or “Berlin at night”? Let’s do that. I’ll have to check my schedule first, obviously.
What does 2x4hours or 3x4hours mean?
4 hour sessions on two or three consecutive days. In my experience 8 hours of non stop one to one teaching is a bit challenging to absorb.
Can I do 8 hours on one day?
Yes, of course.
In what languages do you teach?
English, German and French
Can I do the personal workshop with a friend or two?
Absolutely, it’ll be 75% of the single person rate for each person (and 60% for 3 persons).
Can I have a different package?
Sure, just tell me what you need and we will make it happen.
Can I hire you for a company event or a group workshop?
Absolutely, shoot me a mail and we’ll come up with something.
Can I simply hire you for a photo tour through Berlin?
Of course, same rates above apply.
Did you ever took a street photography workshop yourself?
Actually, I have. A street photography workshop with Eric Kim in Amsterdam, a Magnum Masterclass with Bruce Gilden in London and a street photography workshop with Vineet Vohra at the Bruxelles Street Photography Festival.
