Yes, I think it has to be in a large city for it to work. Even in NYC, we only consistently get 6-12 people for most meet-ups. Only the big meetup in February gets 20-30 or more. Coming back to NYC anytime soon?

These NYC meetups are difficult when you have young kids and live in another part of town. The only one I was able to attend was the one meetup that was in my neighborhood last year.

Understood Keith. Once Puck Fair closes, we will have to find a different location. It was just hard to find one that could accommodate us all in Harlem. It worked that one time and then the next time it didn't.

i'd rather take a workshop with an expert, rather than someone who just took a workshop with an expert! i think i'd get exponentially more out of the experience.
Those workshops screen photographers by looking at their portfolio before accepting them. The main reason being that a mix of green and advanced photographers during the same workshop leads to issues.

Eric Kim's workshops are mainly for beginners, those who have not or cannot point a camera at the strangers on the street for street photography, or they're still stuck at the hip shot phase rather than actually framing from the eye-level at the subjects on the street.

Eric Kim workshops could help photographers to overcome their inhibitions.

Not anytime soon, but then again I rarely plan my trips long in advance

[Perhaps] Sadly I no longer have anything rare or interesting rangefinder-wise, those days are long gone, so is the geek pretty much.

Sounds more like a Learning Annex class, perhaps a listing in Craigs List...

no discredit to those who are serious about taking 'street photography' workshops, and think Eric Kim is the guy they want to take them from, but thanks for the comic relief guys

it doesn't take a $500 workshop to do that. going out on the weekend by yourself will do that for free!

Quote from above link
"In regards to my workshops, they are focused on building confidence and fundamental skills in street photography. I feel that I do this very well and I also offer a 100% money back guarantee for anyone who attends and who isn’t happy (nobody has asked for their money back yet). And lastly, it is a great opportunity to meet other passionate street photographers. At the end of the day, I see myself less of a teacher and more of a facilitator."

I attended a workshop with both Eric Kim and Adam Marelli a few years back, and had a blast. I did learn some technical and formal things about composition and light, mostly from Adam Marelli, and I learned a whole lot about the social aspect of street photography and photographing and approaching strangers from Eric Kim.

Eric is fantastic with people. I've never met anyone who gets along with everyone in the streets in the way he does. He's just super skilled with people. And that's what I learnt from him. How to interact with people, and how to use photography to interact with people. This is just as, if not more important, than knowing photography itself...

In my opinion this workshop was one of my wisest purchases ever. Much more so than buying a new camera or lens or anything else that is material.
I also connected with a bunch of like-minded people from all over the world, who I stay in touch with. I visited one of the workshops attendees in Vancouver about 6 months ago and had a blast.

So... Did I learn a lot about photography itself? No. But I walked away with something far more valuable, and learned something far greater than just making pictures.

A couple of years ago I attended one of Jeff Jacobson's workshops. Jeff is both a superb photographer and an insightful teacher.
