For some time now we have wanted to take our workshop tour concept a little further.
We have never been interested in simply chasing tripod hole locations and our current approach reflects that. However we also have an interest in helping people move beyond simply learning creative techniques. Those techniques - like the camera - while important to understand, are not the key to becoming an artist.That lies in expressing what is inside us in our own very personal way .
So it is our goal that these new ‘Creative Growth’ workshops will have a more intense focus on artistic development. We want to help you open your mind, to think with greater freedom, develop your own style, forge your own path. It is our hope that they will facilitate your progress as an artist and you will come away creatively invigorated and inspired.
‘Creative Growth’ tours will be a little different to our other workshops. Going out with the camera every day will still be at the heart of our initiative, but we will also set aside a part of each day to deliver presentations designed to stimulate your thinking. We will host group discussions dedicated to pushing creative boundaries and finding ways to progress as an artist. Positive, honest, group critique sessions of your work will feature as will processing demonstrations which will be recorded for you to download later. Some locations will include visits to art collections where we can discuss composition, light, colour and techniques, learning from the art of others.
To facilitate everything we want you to achieve on these tours, we will be selecting very special hotels, preferably those with some connection to the visual arts We will choose properties that can offer us a stimulating environment with an atmosphere conducive to learning, with our own room for the teaching sessions and in locations rich with inspiration.
We hope these tours will excite and creatively invigorate you. As always, we will endeavour to give our all to try and help you achieve your creative goals.
