I am thrilled to be going back to London and Paris at the end of August!!!
This time I will be going to teach a workshop with two other fantastic instructors: Keith Lee, the professor at Foothill College who inspired me to leave my desk job and study photography full-time, and award-winning photographer, and soon-to-be my husband, Matt Drown.
Please, join us as we photograph our way through the two cities that gave birth to photography, London and Paris. Both are rich with visual history and the dynamic energy of truly global cities. We will spend nine days in London photographing the city by foot, Tube, and boat. We will visit the world-famous Getty collection and get behind the scenes on private tours at the Victoria and Albert Museum, the Museum of London, and others. We will explore London’s markets, ethnic neighborhoods, parks, busy streets, and quiet alleys. London is becoming the restaurant mecca of Europe and we have arranged for some special culinary treats and visits as well.
We will then take the train to Paris, to spend five days walking in the footsteps of photographers such as Henri Cartier Bresson, William Klein, Robert Doisneau, Brassaï, and many others. Like London, we will tour city by foot, metro, and boat. There will be daily walking tours to various points of photographic interest and beauty. We have arranged for private tours at the Henri Cartier Bresson collection and Le Maison Européenne de la Photographie, two of the premier centers for photographic art in Europe. We will tour the medieval corners, the bridges, the narrow alleys, cafés, markets, gardens, and cemeteries in this incredible city.
This unique workshop has been developed to be quite different than most. We want to combine the best of a travel photography workshop and a photography class. On top of the excursions, visits, and photowalks, we will also conduct regular group meetings and photo critiques so that each participant can work to improve their skills and return home with the best photographs they can take. We want you to return home with more than postcard-quality images.
Workshop Dates: Monday, August 25- Monday, September 8
Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org (650-315-8812) or Keith Lee at email@example.com (650-949-7145) with any questions and to be added to the participant list. Online registration and a detailed itinerary will be available online by April 18.
A few reviews from previous workshops that I have taught:
“You have been the best photo instructor I have worked with, thank you for your energy time and patience.” -James D.
“I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, and was really pleased with the images I was able to capture. Your enthusiasm for street photography was infectious. Thanks so much for all your guidance and suggestions.” -Janet R.
“I learned to look, see and notice everything in that one spot that I would ordinarily have passed right over.” -Cathy Y.
“I want to particularly thank you for being so organized and informative. So often I end up in a workshop or class where the instructor has not given the format and presentation sufficient thought to make it a truly learning experience. Not you. You really did a beautiful job on all counts.” -Tom S.
“You did an outstanding job of being our mentor, cheerleader and more! The best in so many ways! You have a real gift for being a fabulous workshop leader” -Mary J.
