Terms, Conditions, Info
Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis. Participants will be informed of acceptance as soon as possible after applications are received.
The master photographer will guide and supervise ten/twelve photographers during a tight schedule that combines both theoretical classes and shooting assignments, offering them day by day feedback in the selection process.
During the workshop and under the guidance of the Master, students will acquire the skills necessary to build a reportage by analyzing magazines tearsheets, comparing between peers, dealing with real-situation problems and editing their images.
Thanks to the form of a shooting assignment, the workshops are thought to stimulate participants to start thinking like a photoreporter, understanding what it means to “cover a story” and following their own personal way of doing it.
The objective of the workshops is to learn and enhance how a story is told through photographs. The steps are:
- the study of different magazines, and the way they manage to report stories,
- browsing other similar works of professional photographers selected by the Master,
- developing one theme, for each workshop, and shooting it,
- have a daily review by the Master,
- do a final editing
Technical equipment (camera, extra accessories and laptop) must be provided by each participant. Photographers will be expected to shoot digitally using cameras with sufficient resolution to produce high quality A4 size prints. It is possible to shoot on film too, but processing costs are separate.
WHO IS IT FOR?
The workshops are designed for professional photographers and serious amateurs who wish to improve their ability in storytelling. There are no restrictions, but it is important the participants already have practical knowledge, as technical elements of photography are not part of the workshops.
The workshops are limited to 10/12 places so that the Master photographers are able to give enough individual time to each participant.
Workshop will be held in English. Translation will be provided where needed by an assistant, who will also help students with technical or logistical questions.
In addition to the active participants, attendees as listeners are admitted to take part in the theoretical lessons.
The workshops will be hosted in an international art house in the heart of Kreuzberg.
