Storytelling With Photographs And Audio with Tewfic El Sawy

27 April 2017 - 02 May 2017


Tewfic El-Sawy will teach a multimedia class that allows its participants to concentrate on the story, rather than on the application. The purpose and aim of the class is multifaceted; it aims to show photographers how to weave their still photography into stories, how to use ambient or other recorded audio to enhance the stories, and how to use these images and audio to produce cogent photo stories under the simulation of publishing deadlines.

Part of the class’s time will be spent photographing in the field, while indoors time will be devoted to weaving the material into photo stories. Most of the software for this workshop are freely available as apps.

Here’s an example of a short multimedia story produced by Tewfic during his 2016 Travel Photographer Asia’s workshop.https://youtu.be/F0EpG8AQoFU

Editing, Sequencing and Design of a Photobook with Calin Kruse

03 May - 2017 - 07 May 2017

For any photographer, the recording of images is the first part of their journey with a story. The process that begins after the camera has been put down is often more challenging. The photographer is required to reflect, to speak and even to write so that their work can have a full life.

In this workshop, it is this life and afterlife that we will be concerned with. This workshop is about the creation of photobooks on the one hand, as well as about rethinking your work in the context of a photobook on the other hand. Calin will work closely with the participants in the production and presentation of a book from their own photo projects over the course of five days, focusing on design, editing, sequencing and the importance of materials in the production of photobooks.

This workshop will put emphasis on the creation of a final product but the language used in the project’s ultimate presentation to audiences will also be discussed and developed.

The workshop culminates with each participant creating a photobook dummy.


What language will it be in?

English


Who is this workshop target at?

This workshop is designed for photographers who have completed a project and are in the book design and editing phase. For photographers who are midway through a project, this workshop is a great exercise in thinking about the direction of your project and to get a better overall perspective of the various possibilities of putting your work together. The workshop is a great opportunity to rethink and test your book editing approach before print.


How long will it take?

Five days

What is Travel Photography, and how to develop your inner voice for better images with Etienne Bossot

04 May 2017 - 07 May 2017

When doing Travel Photography in Asia it is very tempting to go and explore the main visited areas, places we have seen photos of and we'd like to capture. But after some years we can end up with the same "cliché" images as everyone else does, and we are confronted with locals who see us as a way of making money.

So how can we, first, develop our composition skills to find more inspiration and originality in our images? Then, I'd like to share my experience of traveling through Asia and the best possible ways to visit locations that will offer the best photo opportunities, but also discussing how can we travel in a smarter way to facilitate the contact with the locals and capture images in a respectful way.

Part of the class will be spent indoor, discussing composition tips and techniques. We will also spend a good amount of time creating discussions around the topic of Travel photography. There will be 1.5 days of shooting in the field, and a last day of photo reviews from the shooting time.


What language will it be in?

English


Who is this workshop for?

Anyone with a good understanding of photography and some advanced knowledge about the camera (we will not spend much time talking about camera settings)


How long will it take?

This workshop will last 4 days.


Will it be hard work?

The goal of this workshop is to help people getting out of their comfort zone in order to reach a better understanding of Travel Photography. This will require some work of course, but when one loves photography, it is never work!


Will I have fun?

We are not here to be too serious about ourselves, of course we will have a lot of fun!


Technical requirements:

A camera, any camera. But ideally one that leaves us room for our creativity, meaning being able to control the settings.
