Service Description

Prague, like Paris, once you immerse yourself, it will never let you go. It is an ancient city of poetry, philosophy, the spiritual and the occult. It is here, more than in any other city, that we can feel lives past ooze from the old stone walls. It is the city of the Golem and of witches and of inexplicable happenings. I love exploring the old town at night. There is something that catches your eye and touches your heart at every corner. The photographer translates this place into a language of personal narrative images. You will leave here with a wealth of new work and new inspiration. Together we explore why we make images and how they get/stay in tune with who we are deep down. There will be plenty of assignments and reviews of our individual work and I am confident you will leave this workshop with a better notion of what your genuine, authentic, creative task is and how to go about its realization. Before the beginning of the workshop I will ask you to send me a collection (up to 12 images) of your work, whether it's a coherent portfolio or a selection of “best of”. I will also ask to send a few images that inspire you and that you wish you had taken yourself. We get together in our “class room” (mostly at the Leonardo hotel and the neighboring cafe Standard) in the morning and evening for some lively conversation about and review of our day's work. Most of the day will be spent shooting and editing. Nightly exploration of the Old Town are strongly recommended, I don't know about your shooting patterns but I am usually out there early mornings or after dark. I also love shooting in the rain and fog. But that's just me and you will march to the beat of your own drum. I recommend individual exploration instead of traipsing around the place in a distracted group. This workshop is for all levels since it is not about technique but VISION. You are welcome to use any device for your image making, whether it is a phone or the latest, fancy DSLR model. You will need a laptop and one or two thumb drives, that's all. This workshop is priced at $ 1250, (registration requires a deposit of $ 400 with the remainder due a month before the start of the workshop) which includes only the workshop proper. The students are in charge of all costs for travel, transportation, accommodations, insurance and food. I can help you find good places to stay in the city (hotels or AirBnB). For any interested student I can provide a reading list to get you in the mood
