About the Workshops

An in-depth personal project is often what it takes to transform a good photographer into a great one. Yet undertaking such a project can seem daunting. What are the required steps to start with an idea and build it into a meaningful body of work? Over the past fifteen years, I have made my photography career based around personal projects. Analysing the successes and failures of multiple projects, I’ll guide you through the process, helping you to stay focused and avoid common pitfalls.

Topics included:

• Inspiration
• Artistic and technical approach
• Overcoming obstacles
• Building a narrative structure
• Editing

Participants should bring either a project idea or a work-in-progress that needs guidance. Each participant will be given time for personal instruction.



“My imagination was opened up to a variety of new and challenging ideas. The focus on storytelling vis-a-vis a personal project pushed me to rethink my own work.”

– Danny Uhlmann, past Masterclass participant
