A large group of VII photographers will also be hosting an intensive four day workshop after their annual meeting in Barcelona, Spain in June, 2016. This is a unique opportunity to work with 16 VII photographers as well as 40-60 other attendees during an intense series of lectures, workshops, portfolio reviews and more. It will take place at the beautiful Villa Maria just outside Barcelona.
Here’s a breakdown of how the four days will be organized:
Masterclass (1h30, projection room)
VII photographer talks about a long-term project he has worked on.
Specific Topic (1h30, projection room)
VII photographer talks about a topic he has a deep understanding and professional practice on.
Collective Editing & Sequence session (1h, projection room)
VII photographer works with a group of students on editing and sequencing on one or several student series (with projected screen in a classroom or with prints).
One-to-one (45 minutes, in the Villa gardens)
VII photographer works individually with a student on any kind of subject matter he wants to talk about: coaching/mentoring, career, project in progress, photographer’s attitude, editing, etc.
Shooting session (45 minutes, outdoors)

Personal shooting session (outdoors)
Participants will be encouraged to shoot in Barcelona during the workshop to practice and improve their shooting skills. A list of subjects in Barcelona will be sent to the participants a few weeks before the workshop begins, Eyes in Progress will be able to help in establishing contacts with local associations and people.
There will be two evenings when we’ll be projecting photographs and videos in the Villa gardens, the first evening (on Thursday) will be open to the public and we’ll show a selection of VII Photo Agency powerful works, the other evening (on Sunday) will be a final party and we’ll project participants works who are willing.
