A quick status update: there are a few places left for Europe and one left for Singapore.

Europe

Amsterdam – 25-28 September – One place left
Prague – 2-5 October – One place left
Munich – 9-12 OctoberPostponed to 2014 due to local commitments

The syllabus will still follow the core fundamentals from the USA tour: throw everything you thought you knew about photography out the window, and start again. All you need is a camera and a couple of perspectives – one wide, one tele. It could be either end of a zoom on a compact, or it could be medium format and a couple of primes – it’s up to you. What I’ll be teaching is subject independent: make great images, any time, with any subject, any camera. Put it this way: it’s easy to spend thousands on equipment that you may use a handful of times a year, but what about the knowledge that lets you make the most of that equipment, in any situation?

Europe:

The polls are in and the people have spoken…I’m pleased to announce the Europe leg of the Making Outstanding Images Workshop series: three cities, three dates. There will be two big changes over the USA workshops: firstly, they’ll now run for four days instead of three so I can cover even more ground; and due to demand for shorter workshops, you can now attend and pay for just the days you find interesting – so for all of those who wanted a 1-day workshop option, here it is.

The cities will be:
Amsterdam – 25-28 September Currently full, but accepting standbys
Prague – 2-5 October Currently full, but accepting standbys
