A very rare weekend workshop in Sydney Australia by fine art photographer Jonathan Chritchley. Limited to only 12 participants to allow for the most personal interaction and discussion, this workshop is intended for photographers already familiar with the techniques of long-exposure and ocean photography but keen to take their work to the next level. Participants gain personal behind-the-scene information on how Jonathan found, composed and captured some of his most popular images, including a rare look at several of his original negatives. Jonathan will go into detail about the processes used to create the final images. The programme also includes a field shoot for a practical discussion of what makes for a great photograph and critical advice on what to include or avoid when composing an image. Jonathan will work with each participant personally as they proceed through the shoot. The atmosphere for these sessions is friendly and supportive but the goal is to motivate participants to achieve a high standard for their work.
The workshops are also unique in providing valuable information on the business side of fine art photography. The challenge of getting your photographs published, exhibited and sold is discussed in detail as Jonathan talks of his successful experiences approaching art galleries, juried competitions, magazine editors and book publishers. Jonathan Chritchley works solely as a fine art photographer and has extensive gallery representation and his photographs have been featured in many publications. The workshops provide an intimate opportunity to question and understand what it takes to be a successful artist.
