Artic sculpture - Greg Clarke


Professional photographer, Greg Clarke, will share what he has learned over the last two decades shooting around the world, revealing his thought process and techniques during a shoot. He will share his digital retouching expertise daily so that you can polish your images like a pro. Whether you have just bought your first DSLR camera or are a seasoned veteran, this 6-day course will allow you to deepen your creative vision. You will learn to master your camera, and gain a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of a great photo, lighting and composition.

Different styles of photography will be introduced, with their techniques and subtleties, such as documentary, portraiture and landscape, through the work of famous artists. Throughout the week, you will find your own path and put together a body of work along a theme of you choosing.
Morning classes will begin with group critiques to support each other in their creative flow Each student will show at least five retouched images taken the previous day.
The afternoons will be devoted to photo shoots and digital retouching. Students will be allowed to take a maximum of 36 digital photos during each of their shoots (one or two per day), as if they were shooting a roll of film. This will help to put more thought and effort into each image.

Student testimonials

After following classes with Greg, I feel I've never respected and loved photography this much. The more I've learned, the more motivation I've had. A creative world is opening up for me. Michelle

Before the course, I had an expensive DSLR camera and always would shoot in automatic mode. Now I am the one controlling the camera, not the other way around. I know what settings to use to get the effect I want. I feel much more confident and it shows in my images. Adriana

I have a lot of experience in photography, but nevertheless, the classes allowed me to deepen my own artistic style. In fact, I think it is fair to say that now I am also more aware of the beauty around me. Robert

Greg's classes have helped me tremendously, especially with my awareness of lighting and composition. I am much more attentive before taking a photo and therefore take less, but they are of much higher quality. Now I can also retouch my images on my computer and I enjoy this work as well. Wanche
