In September 2017 I will be presenting a range of workshops and master classes at the Porto Photography Festival in Porto (Portugal), alongside John Stanmeyer, Sara Lando & Norman Maslov. My workshops include black and white photography, Creating Dramatic Images, Shoot the City, and Shoot the Street.

Here's some info on my fellow instructors ...

John Stanmeyer is a humanist, photojournalist, Emmy nominated filmmaker and field recordist dedicated to social and political issues that define our times.

Sara Lando, is a photographer and photography teacher living in Bassano del Grappa (Italy). One of the founders of Papermoustache, she specialises in portraiture, beauty and commercial photography ... and playing with cardboard. Her work combines classical lighting, extreme creativity and experimental techniques, blurring the lines between photography and fine art.

Norman Maslov, a native San Franciscan, is an Artist's Agent representing a small group of extremely creative commercial photographers who constantly cross the line between fine ads and fine art. His agency, Norman Maslov, Agent Internationale was founded in 1986.

Join us on a magical three day photo tour to explore the wonders of historical Venice.

We will stay in the 800 year old Pensione Guerrato, just a few meters from the majestic Grand Canal and historic Rialto Market, and just five minutes walk from the Rialto Bridge.

During the three days of this photo tour you will shoot sunrise at San Marco, capture sunset and the blue hour on the Grand Canal from the famous Ponte dell'Accademia Bridge, wander the brightly coloured canals and piazzas on the Island of Burano, find hidden churches and create a range of atmospheric after-dark images in the ancient Venetian Cálli.

A trip to Venice wouldn't be complete without a chance to sample authentic Venetian cuisine and local wine, so on Friday evening David and Fabio will be delighted to take you to dinner at one of their favourite local restaurants.
