Rio de Janeiro. Just the name alone conjures up imagery. Spectacular location geographically and the place of beauty and passion and well yes, a physical and psychological Shakespearian stage of life. For me to do a workshop in Rio, following the publication of my award winning (based on a true story) and an essay in NatGeo, and smack in the middle of my shooting on my Beach Games project , should for anyone I mentor here be the experience of a lifetime if ever there was one.
I have rented an apartment right on the beach in Rio as the location for our classroom. For critiques of daily individual shooting and a hang spot to discuss ideas and directions for my students.Most of the time however, you will be exploring one of the great cities of the world with a history and culture to fall in love with for sure. At least I did. I am quite sure you would as well.
Join me. My work here for NatGeo and for (based on a true story) has me familiar with the streets and the culture . I will have on hand a top local team as well to make sure you get around with grace.
As in all my workshops I pay attention to YOU. To make sure your investment is a lifetime investment, not just a week of “class”. Besides in February it is going to be freezing in most of Europe and most of North America, and a hot summer day in Rio! Think about it.
We will select the most promising students for this class. My workshops are always challenging and are intended for those who really want to make a mark.
Portfolio review and personal Skype or phone call with me prior to acceptance.
