Workshops 2019

Workshop Fine Art Photography

Learn to make abstract and impressionist photos!

During this entire summer, from the 11th of June to the 30th of September, I will organize fine art photography workshops in the Agger Tange nature reserve and on the North Sea beach near the coastal town of Agger, North Jutland, Denmark.

On two days a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, we go out for a walk in the nature reserve and at the beach to practice the basic principles of abstract and impressionist photography, in a small group of 4-8 persons*.

The workshop starts with half an hour of introduction into the technique in the Sømrummet of the shop Design Agger. After the walk of about 2.5 hours we will end where we have started, to evaluate what you have learned and done and to answer your questions while enjoying a cup of coffee, tea or a soda.

On Thursday afternoons, if there are enough applications, a follow-up workshop will be given for those who want to go deeper into the techniques they have learned in the basic workshop.

The workshops will be given in English. Clarification of the most important actions and techniques in basic German is possible.

Register now for a workshop, fill in your details on the registration form !

Would you prefer an individual workshop for a maximum of 3 people?
Indication of costs: DKK 1.200 / € 160 for 3 hours. Location, duration and date in consultation.

Forget everything you’ve ever learned about photography…

…and move freely!
