Gadgets & Gizmos

You probably heard it before: a good image is a storytelling image. But what is a visual story and how to evoke it in your work?

There's far more to travel photography than carrying a smart phone - although a smartphone will do if that's your choice. Oded Wagenstein and Peter Eastway have quite different approaches to photography, but a common philosophy in that so much of our photography happens behind the camera, not just in front of the lens. It's all about setting up the trip and thinking through what you want to achieve that determines the outcome.

This workshop will share with you how two of the world's leading photographers tackle travel photography, delivering both practical and philosophical approaches that will transform your travel snaps into a portfolio of considered masterpieces! Added bonus - practical advice selling your work from industry editors.
