First of all: A Happy New Year to you all! I hope we all entered into a year that will both be inspiring and creative.
A new year opens up for new possibilities. As for myself I have sat down and looked upon photo workshops I want to teach in 2016. Some I have taught for a while, but one is completely new for me – which I look forward to try out.
First of all I am pleased to say that my good friend and colleague, Sven Creutzmann, and I will once again teach a workshop in Cuba. The workshop is a great opportunity to discover this beautiful Caribbean island, its friendly people, the sensual rhythms of everyday life as well as the former colonial and African culture that still so much influence all life in Cuba. During the workshop we will of course spend time in Havana, both photographing the beautiful old town as well as other landmarks and just daily life as it passes on the street. After a couple of days in Havana we will then travel to Trinidad, one of the most scenic, colonial cities in Cuba. I can guarantee quite an experience if you come along on this workshop to maybe one of the most photogenic countries I have ever been to. The Cuba workshop will take place from May 8th to May 15th. For me information about it, please look up Blue Hour Photo Workshops.
In the autumn I will teach a photo workshop in Prague in Czech Republic. This is a first for me, although I have been many a time in the country. This workshop will be a shorter, kind of long weekend. Prague is an amazing city and absolutely one of the most beautiful in Europe. I really look forward to be able to offer this workshop. I will get back with more information on a later date.
Finally – as I announced before Christmas – I am soon about to start another round of the eWorkshop «Finding Your Photographic Workshop». This is a workshop that goes over eight weeks and is totally taught over internet. I will send you weekly leaflets with inspiration and exercises and then give you feedback on your photos. In all modesty, I think this is a very good option for those who cannot attend a regular workshop. And I know that people, who have attended before, have felt I was able to help them develop their photographic. Maybe it’s time for you? The workshop starts up on January 25th.
