Connect with the artist within. This is a chance to break new ground by breaking with your photographic routine. Unique amongst photography workshops, each day Eileen and Olaf introduce the work of a master drawn from a different artistic discipline to coach your creative right brain into action. You’ll be challenged to photograph poetry, to use music as a stimulus to shoot a series of images and much more…
Our class allows your intuition to flourish. In addition to shooting solo, you’ll collaborate with other talented photographers in our group throughout the creative process. From choosing themes to seeing, shooting and building towards your own art show at the end of the week.
Through daily group discussions, individual feedback and review, Eileen and Olaf will work hard to help you develop a meaningful and satisfying body of unexpected images throughout the week.
Sponsored by Leica. Complimentary access to Leica cameras & lenses.
