These workshops have become such a big part of my work as an artist which is incredibly beautiful, because when finally finishing my masters degree in art education in 2018 I already left the path of teaching kids how to draw and paint. I was knee deep in photography and I remember thinking that it needed 5 years studying something that I don’t end up doing just to become an artist accidentally. And now my studies seem to not have been a complete waist as teaching comes back into my life with these workshops. With my beautiful and talented Lena Aires as my co-teacher we focus our experience on creating a unique space for a group of people that will have not known each other before, but will grow into companions over a very short period of time; all through being connected by the same passion. Our workshops are not so much about perfect results or perfect techniques, or results as such in particular: it's about getting inspired, being motivated, connect and shoot with other creatives and ultimately sharing a passion together. Hidden from the world in a beautiful space (previously an old style Portuguese Villa in Porto, an old mansion with gigantic garden in the Normandy, up on a hill watching over Rome until the seaside and in an incredibly fun and colorful traditional spanish home) we create relentlessly, let our souls rest and connect to our inner inspirations and form trust and friendships with strangers. Apart from that, at our adventurous weekends we are always serving tons of delicious food and do always have some specific photography inputs, exercises and fun sessions ready. Like an input about some nerdy know-how about filmphotography, one part is dedicated to our processes of shooting with other people, taking their portraits ect. and last but not least also a more in depth input about selfportraiture. If you would love to sign up for the next one, please get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org. The next workshop is in October 5th-9th in yet secret location.
