First step, buy a camera. Second step, go into the city and take pictures. That’s as good a start as any. You can take courses in photography at any college that offers them, usually if they’ve got a substantial art department, or you can try for specialty schools like the Art Institutes. I can tell you right off the bat, if you ask for classes in “street photography” they’ll look at you upside down as there aren’t any. Street photography is a style, not neccessarily a technique that can be learned in a classroom. Generally, colleges that do programs in photography offer classes in commercial or studio photography that are geared more toward mainstream or industry standard photographers. There can be a wealth of knowledge that can be gained, but you’ll have to develop your own style, like most other photographers. But, the first step is to go and take as many photographs as it takes to get comfortable with doing street photography. It’s a very broad style that ranges from architectural, people, candids, to some photojournalism. So be aware.
