Join me this October 25-28 for my Eyes in Progress workshop in Berlin: Visual Storytelling in the Digital Age
Learn and improve how to build a documentary reportage by covering an editorial story. To refine storytelling and story composition by analyzing real-situation problems, images analysis, editing and captions writing. Most of all, this workshop will help you discover your own visual language as well as practical and conceptual know how to confront real situation reportage making. This workshop will also focus on how to gain a new perspective on one’s works and attitude.
« [… ] Adults bring more neuroses, habits, and fears, along with their more developed talent and purpose. They are hampered, in a way, by their photographic baggage, their professional dreams, or their desire to emulate or outdo other people’s photographs. For these reasons my adult students are as much in need of guidance as the kids, but in certain ways they also present a greater opportunity for growth. [… ] If I know an adult photo student wants to make photography their profession, then I’ll take a more critical approach to their images as well as their approach, behavior, even dress sometimes (especially with females), and I try to get them to express their intentions so they become clearer and stronger about why they want to do this. [… ] The amateur who just wants to improve their photography requires a different approach. To me it’s important to help them grow while also preserving their love and joy for the craft. We all know people who are wonderful in some art form yet drop it because they lose the joy when they realize they’re “not good enough” to “make it” professionally. In fact, many very talented people just don’t have the stomach to handle the pressures, rejection, and bullshit involved with being a professional in something that is so personal and subjective. » Ed Kashi (from RESOLVE, collaborative online community )
This will be a hands on workshop with shooting sessions, individual assignments, daily group discussion and editing sessions.
You’ll be expected to fully immerse yourself, take risks and push your boundaries in order to move forward into another level in your photography.
Early bird rates available until Aug. 2!
