Streets of USA with Jesse Marlow: Miami | Dec 1-3, 2023


This event has already occured


    This winter Jesse Marlow returns with Leica Akademie & Leica Store Miami to host his weekend workshop in Miami Florida. This course is for the avid street photographers interested in improving their skills and composition. Leica is not required to attend.

    We limit the numbers to 10 guests only.


    • Making photographs vs. those that happen spontaneously Content vs. Form
    • How to discover pictures, anywhere.
    • Approaches to photographing people in public.
    • Developing awareness and anticipation.
    • Judging when and where to be as events unfold around you.
    • The process of discovering a “style.”



    This workshop is designed for beginning and intermediate photographers hoping to develop their craft. Photographers who enjoy documenting the world around them are encouraged to join. Please consider this workshop if you carry a camera daily or have a passion for capturing the details of life. 


    Participants are expected to have good understanding their cameras as well as an understanding of basic image editing. Owning a Leica is not required. This is a rain or shine workshop, so you will need to be prepared for the weather. You will need a laptop or iPad for image evaluation on Sunday. 


    The workshop involves a good amount of walking. During each of the photo walks, participants should expect to walk at least 5 miles as we move through the city looking for where light meets shadow and seeking out the dramatic and often fleeting moments on the street. 

    Enrollment is strictly limited. If the program is sold out, please contact to be added to the wait-list.
