Dates
Saturday, September 1, 2018. From 9 AM to 5 PM.
The lunch is included in the workshop’s prize.

Outline
Developing a personal vision as a photographer is both challenging and rewarding. Didier Ruef will lead participants through an exciting day of visual presentation and discussion. This course explores ways to develop a personal style while focusing on long-term goals.

Participants are requested to present a selection of their pictures – digital or printed- for an initial portfolio review, so that Didier Ruef can adapt to students’ work.

During the day, the work will be edited and discussed in order to raise issues and constructive critics.

The aim of the workshop is to guide each photographer towards his own way of looking and help him to create a personal style.
