A classroom and location based workshop led by Tony Worobiec FRPS.

Our eyes are incredibly discriminating, and we are constantly seeing aspects of landscape that we find visually appealing, but because this location hasn't been published, it is easy to convince yourself that it isn't worth pursuing. Self-doubt really is the enemy. The aim of this workshop is to guide you through numerous photographic situations which you might otherwise ignore and to show you that these locations are as worthy, if not even more so than the over-photographed locations you may already have on your wish-list. The advantages of working this way are numerous. First, the opportunities for taking interesting landscapes are greatly increased; once you appreciate that there is exciting potential virtually on your doorstep, then you cease dreaming about those places you wish to visit which might be many miles, or even continents away. Achieving a photographic "style" is the goal of many serious landscape workers, and this can only be achieved by "ploughing your own furrow”. By embracing new ways of looking at the landscape, such as abstract photography, minimalism, or by assessing the worth of a given location on the merits of the constituent visual elements, your confidence in your own abilities is greatly increased. Once you start to trust your own capacity to identify and develop a particular location, you can then begin to consider yourself a true "fine-art" landscape photographer. The aim of any serious landscape photographer is to capture images that are unique to them; the workshop aims to promote this.

This is the second of two Guernsey based workshops to be led by Tony, the first takes place on Friday 6th September. If you wish to attend both workshops you must book and pay for each workshop as a seperate transaction.

We ask those who have no preference on which day they attend to book for the workshop on Friday 6th September, which will allow those with weekday work commitments to attend on the Saturday.

Both workshops will follow a similar pattern, with a classroom session in the morning, followed by an afternoon of outdoor practical exploration. Each workshop limited to 12 places.

Refreshments will be available, and you may choose to bring a packed lunch.

Meet at the Castel Douzaine Room at 10.00 am for a prompt start.

Pre-booking is required, and will give you free entry to the Lecture Talk on Thursday evening without separate booking.
