Workshop Bristol (UK)
This workshop is fully booked.
Join Rob Hornstra on February 11 and 12, 2017 for a two-day intensive workshop for photographers, designers and storytellers who wish to learn how to construct and present long-term photography projects.
In this workshop, Hornstra will share his insight into the funding and marketing by using The Sochi Project as an example of a self-published photo project. This workshop is about what we all desire as storytellers and photographers: Freedom. Freedom creates opportunity. Opportunity makes your future.
Over the course of two days, he will outline how the Internet and digital printing techniques have opened up endless possibilities for self-published work. The curriculum will also address how to attract an audience to your project, collaboration between photographers and writers, crowdfunding and the process of slow journalism. This workshop’s main objective is to help students in creating independence and become liberated photographers and publishers, ready to begin sharing their stories with the world.
“I learned more than I expected. Most valuable were the practical and hands on tips on how to make and publish a big project.” - New York, 2014
“I really found it great. It was a chance to step back and reflect on my own personal practice and why I make photographs. It was filled with great information and resources for creating work and or publishing a photo book and more.” - Dublin, 2014
“Thanks a lot for the very insightful last two days! They gave a lot of new ideas and input…new ways to approach things! So much to do!” - Vienna, 2015
“Many ambitious photographers are conservative when it comes to presenting their projects, offering their work – often free of charge – to newspapers, magazines, or book publishers. They put their fate in the hands of others and wait,” says Hornstra. “That’s unnecessary.”
