American photographer and television host Art Wolfe will be in the country tomorrow to present a series of photo workshops and seminars to aspiring artists in the medium.
The one-day seminars will be a discussion on the art of composition where Wolfe will utilise his formal training as a fine-art painter and art education instructor to dissect visual image examples and explore – in depth – what makes for compelling and emotionally engaging photographs.
During the four-day workshops, he will engage with those attending one-on-one. It is guaranteed you will leave feeling inspired and equipped with useful tips on how to move your photography forward.
The son of artists, Wolfe graduated with a bachelor of fine arts degree from the University of Washington. He has done work for National Geographic, where he’s fused nature photography with photojournalism and art photography essentials.
With more than 65 photography books and instructional video material under his belt, Wolfe is a seasoned photographer and has earned himself an honorary Fellowship at the world’s oldest national photographic society, the Royal Photographic Society of the UK.
He is possibly best known for the TV series Art Wolfe’s Travels to the Edge, where he takes viewers to awe-inspiring locations around the world and captures the life that inhabits the space.
Having worked on every continent over three decades, he also shares his insights into the world around him.
The artist will hold one-day seminars in Johannesburg (Wednesday) and Cape Town (Friday). Tickets are R1300 per person and include a full day presentation, along with meals. There’s also the option of a four-day photo workshop in Arniston on April 8-11 and April 11-14.
This seminar offers you the opportunity to capture images of one of South Africa’s most beautiful locations. Ticket costs are R13500 per person sharing and R15500 for single travellers. A 40% deposit confirms your place and all prices are VAT inclusive.
