Explore & Shoot the Streets of Bali (Kuta, Denpasar) Indonesia: 5-Day Travel Photography Workshop. October 20-October 24, 2014
Have you ever seen a moment that you wanted to capture, but you were too scared or hesitated to take the photograph? Do you want to become more confident shooting with your camera’s various settings? Do you want to learn how to better interact with your subjects? Do you want to meet other photographers that are as equally passionate about photography and interested in learning like you?
Elephant Gun is delighted to announce a very special workshop in Bali, an island and province of Indonesia particularly appreciated for spiritual tourism, its endless sandy beaches, and its highly diverse art forms heavily influenced by a mix of Indian, Chinese, and Hindu cultures. From October 20th to October 24th, 2014, take a new kind of holiday in the heart of the island’s dry season (referred to as "summer" by the locals) and join Elephant Gun photographers on an adventurous 5-day experience that will take your photography to a truly new and innovative level.
These workshops are made for beginner to intermediate photographers and lovers of photography who are willing to think creatively and approach concepts that encompass many disciplines from portrait to landscape photography. With as many as three Elephant Gun photographers as your photographic tour guides, you can be assured that this will be challenging, exciting, and, most importantly, entertaining. We will take you to the best places in Bali to shoot, and several places off the beaten path. Join us for five days with a small group of like-minded travellers and photograph your voyage of discovery in an unconventional way.
Workshop participants should own a DSLR and understand basic functions of popular editing programs (e.g., Lightroom, Aperture); possess a fundamental photographic knowledge, a positive attitude, a desire to learn, and the ability to give and receive positive, constructive feedback. Attendees will be expected to arrive fully acquainted with their equipment and ready to photograph.
Each workshop is limited to 15 participants.
Photographers should prepare sufficient research relating to what they wish to shoot prior to arrival. An ideas list will be provided for inspiration; however candidates are expected to formulate realistic projects in the geography and time supplied. Elephant Gun will provide a suitable workshop infrastructure and participants will be responsible for their own time management.
Due to the fast pace of the workshop, Elephant Gun highly recommends that participants produce and edit their work digitally, using their own laptops.
Please note: all workshops will be conducted in English. Depending on student mix, other language and translation services may be available. Please contact us if you have special language needs.
Generally, workshop days are from 10am to 6pm. There will also be several bonus and optional shooting opportunities at various locations throughout the workshop such as an evening ceremony or night market.
