Lead by Erik Vroons (Editor at Large - GUP Magazine)

WHO AM I AS AN ARTIST AND WHAT IS MY WORK ABOUT, EXACTLY?

These are fundamental questions in order to arrive at a successful career in photography – regardless of the genre or field of work.

The aim of this workshop is to develop and shape your 'signature' as a photographer by awareness of conceptual thinking; how to reflect on and to communicate a work in progress both visually and in written word; building and layering a story by editing. Within the workshop we will work with students that arrive with self-initiated works in progress, in order to:

  • shape the concept of a project in development;

  • practice presentation of this concept, both written and verbally;

  • apply practical information (how to get to results);

  • create awareness of platforms, exposure and related media characteristics (how do you present your work as a book, an exhibition, on a website, as multi-media, etc?)

  • train the skill of production and editing of a series towards a (digital) portfolio presentation.

 

STUDENTS NEED TO BRING TO CLASS:

  • a broad edit of 30-50 images of their work in progress (10 x 15 cm drugstore quality prints are good enough)

  • laptop + extensive harddrive + digital camera**;

  • good spririt
