Ateliers & Workshops 2015


The Ateliers are short (usually one day) workshops where a small group of photographers work with a mentor who is a professional artist/photographer, in a stimulating environment.

There are no formal presentations and participants work within a structured framework, exploring a theme and creating their own images with constant feedback and guidance from the mentor. Technical, composition, design or visual communication issues are discussed as they crop up.

Themes include:

• Conscious camerawork
• Light
• Black & White as expressive medium
• Travelogue
• Exploring photography as fine art
