Award-winning photographers, Alixandra Fazzina and Sebastian Liste will share their practices, passions and expertise to guide participants, but also push them to think differently about their work.
Focus media organizes this event at our location. The central theme of this evening is ‘How to film with your DSLR’? Professional filmer Patrick van Weeren will present his work and Nivo Schweitzer will be present with different sorts of equipment, so you can ‘touch and try’. A pleasant and interesting evening, where you learn new techniques and meet other photographers. Snacks and drinks included.
During the module Signature Development you will learn to talk and write about your work and also develop your ways of working consistent to who you are as a photographer. Writing an artist statement and building a body of work. Developing yourself, developing a signature.
