Want to take your photography out into the wild places of the world and have adventures with your camera but don’t know where to start?
Would you like to to know how to approach local guides, what equipment to take, how to deal with challenging terrain or weather, how to use lighting outdoors and how to deal with altitude, extreme cold and shooting whilst horribly ill?
After becoming frustrated with spending too much time indoors in photo studios, professional photographer Steve Brown self-funded a trip to photograph ice fishermen in Finland which started a chain of events that found him shooting a vicar on a snowmobile in Longyearbyen, the most northerly town in the world; reality TV stars and Olympic athletes in the Austrian Alps in temperatures of -20 degrees; Sherpas in the Khumbu icefall at Everest Base Camp and former child slaves in Kathmandu.
Drawing from the lessons this variety of experiences has taught him, Steve now presents an afternoon’s workshop on doing amazing photo shoots abroad.
Covering subjects including:
– organising a trip from scratch
– budgeting a shoot
– how to find local guides and interpreters
– using flash outdoors in challenging lighting conditions
– what equipment should you take for your trip
– working with a charity as a way of accessing amazing photo subjects – dealing with altitude, illness and other challenges
– lighting stands vs tripods on steep, uneven ground
– cultural sensitivity and using photography for good in the world
Steve will talk in depth about his experiences shooting in very different situations and the various challenges involved, illustrated with behind the scenes photos and videos, the final images themselves, and practical demonstrations of equipment and techniques. There will also be plenty of opportunity for questions and answers throughout.
All profits from the workshop will go to Child Rescue Nepal, helping their work freeing children from slavery.
Time: 2-5pm, July 21st 2018
