Photo Workshop in Bolivia

I have written about it before. But I would like to once again mention that my colleague Sven Creutzmann and I are planning an extra ordinary photo workshop in Bolivia. It will be all about photography—of course—and travelling in a fascinating country with an amazing landscape—and its beautiful people. And again we are following the footsteps of Che Guevara and his last days in Bolovia before he was captured and killed by the Bolivian army. We will meet people who met with Che Guevara and took care of him during those last days.

Although, following his footsteps will only be a red thread through our own photographic journey where the pictures by the participants will be the focus on an everyday basis. If you would like to join, Sven and I will guide you to a better understanding of your photographic vision, we will push you to express it as best you can in your shooting and we will teach you how to approach the photographic process with a creative and personal touch. This workshop is directed to photographers of all levels, beginners to advanced professionals. In other words: Whoever loves photography! In this workshop you will improve your photographic skills; you will learn to better use your camera and improve your understanding of light. The main focus will be on the picture, not on the technical part of the photographic process.

This workshop will take place from September 23rd to October 2nd 2019 and we start our photographic journey from Santa Cruz, the capital of the eastern province of Bolivia and the business centre of the country. From there we will travel up into the lower mountains (up to 3000 meters above sea level) where Che Guevara tried to impose his revolution in Bolivia more than 40 years ago. If you think experiencing—and photographing—this beautiful part of the world with two very experienced photographer sounds like a dream come true, maybe it’s time to plan to join the workshop in the autumn coming up.

There are still space if you ware interested in participating.

  1. I’m curious, as an artist, I sometimes like to take photos of street scenes to paint. I have made it my business to be sure to ask either before or after, if people are in them, if it is “OK”. And people have always been great about it. I know someone who is randomly taking photos of people without their knowledge. What is your take on this?

    1. Sometimes I ask and sometimes I don’t. It depends on the situation. For most of these photos I didn’t ask. They were rapid moments happening on the street. My take is that what happens in public is OK. I make certain I don’t make people look bad – and of course don’t use the photos for instance in advertisement. For that I need a so-called release – or permission to use. However, one should be aware that even just taking photos of people on the street is illegal some places, no matter whether the photos are used or not. That is for instance the case in France.
