In case you are unfamiliar with our course format, here is some information to help you prepare and get the most out of your course day. This information below will also be sent to you via email after completing your registration.
Time/Schedule: Our course will begin promptly at 10:00 and we will take ca. 60 minutes for lunch at 12:15. We'll resume after lunch and finish up with the course between 17:30 and 18:00.
Location: Viewfinder Center for Photography
Address: Else Züblin Strasse 115, 8404 Winterthur.
A map link can be seen on the right side of this page which will help you locate our building. The classroom is located just one train stop away from the Winterthur main station and alongside the very pleasant Eulachpark. Detailed directions call also be found on our website under the "Contact" tab.
Lunch Break: We have a lunch reservation at Gerry's Bar (Italian restaurant) across the street from Viewfinder. We hope you will join us there for lunch. Gerry's has a large selection of pizzas, salads, pastas and Swiss cuisine to choose from, including several vegetarian dishes. You're welcome to leave your belongings at Viewfinder during lunch - as the studio will be locked up during the lunch break.
Our Day: The course will take place both indoors and outdoors (presentations, examples and exercises). For this reason, please be sure to dress appropriately and wear appropriate footwear. Check the weather forecast ahead of time and make sure that you will be comfortable both inside and outside on the course day.
Equipment: You are responsible for bringing your own camera, lens(es), battery, and memory card with you. Check to make sure your batteries are charged up and there is ample space left on your memory card. We will have a mix of different camera's among the participants, and for this reason we advise you to bring your camera manual with you for finding settings which may not be so obvious on the outside of the camera. If you would like to rent a camera for the course, please contact me ahead of time to arrange a rental. We also have 50mm lenses available for use during the course.
Course materials: We will provide each participant with an outline of the course presentation to take home as a reference. If you wish to bring along a notebook - great, otherwise feel free to take notes on the presentation handout.
Thanks again for your registration. Please print the attached registration ticket and bring it with you to the course. We look forward to seeing you then!
