photography workshops

I like to share my fascination for photography and my experience with other people: I offer different photo-workshops, for beginners as well as for more experienced photographers, for groups or individuals, one-day, weekend or holiday-workshops or anything else which suits your timetable. Please feel free to ask if you have any suggestions for other workshops which are mentioned here. I also offer workshops specially « tailored » to your needs and individual photography-coaching.

communication

I also offer photo techniques workshops, a little bit of techniques can be important, but we shouldn’t forget that technique is just a vehicle to get where you want to, it’s a means to an end. Many people let themselves being impressed or intimidated by too much technique or by a person showing off his expensive equipment and long lenses. We’ll learn about technique when the right moment comes, a « problem » which want to be solved, when we need some handy tips and techniques to improve our skills. You can make beautiful photographs with a simple and cheap compact camera. It’s not the camera which takes good pictures, but the person behind the lens!

The most important part is learning to look. Learning to communicate with photographs. Photography is communication.

If you take pictures, you don’t want to put them unseen in a drawer where they stay forever. You want to show them. To you friends, to your family, to the jury of a photography competition, to the visitors of your exhibition. What story or message do I want to tell with my photographs? Even if it’s just a simple message, just a « beautiful » photograph, there’s something you want to « tell », to show to other people. Do my photographs transport the message, show what I want them to show? What can I approve and how can I do it?

open to any suggestions

In my photography work as well as in my workshops I want to link my passion for photography with some of my other passions, with things I like to do: cooking/eating, nature/going for walks, travel/exploring, meeting people…

That’s where my choice of workshops comes from. But as I said before, I’m open to other suggestions and I also offer individual workshops specially designed for you! Please feel free to inquire.
