THE WORKSHOP
will focus on a personal approach to photography, whether you are searching for your own personal expression, or you are looking to hone the expression you have already achieved.
We encourage participants to be open minded and willing to experiment in their search for expression. This will not be a technical workshop, but if needed technical advice will be given. There will be lectures giving a multitude of inputs, and daily feedback on the participants work as we progress. There will also be one – to – one sessions, where participants will be able to discuss in depth their photographic and artistic challenges. The workshop will be held in English. Our base will be at Galerie Depardieu, where all lectures will be held. The gallery is situated very close to the Old Town.

PRICE
The cost of the workshop is 450 Euros. When you apply for the workshop, you will be sent a registration form and an invoice for a deposit of 100 Euros. When this has been paid, you space in the workshop is guaranteed. After the application deadline, the deposit will be returned to you only if the workshop should be cancelled.

APPLICATION DEADLINE
The last date to register for the workshop is 10. March 2018.
