This photo masterclass is spread over six months during which you will develop and conceive a photographic project under the direction of Margot Wallard, photographer represented by the Galerie Vu assisted by Stéphan Norsic, photographer and manager of Zoom’Up.
This photo masterclass is aimed at people who want to learn and improve the construction of a photographic story, whether it is related to fiction, reality or both. Whether the participant already has a photographic project in progress that he or she wishes to start or finalize (model, exhibition scenography) or whether he or she is facing a lack of inspiration, this workshop will give him or her food for thought, work methods (editing, sequence, image association) and will lead him or her to question their way of transcribing the world. The main objective of this training is to allow them to acquire the necessary autonomy to carry out their professional career. It is about learning the working methods to develop their projects but also to position themselves and present their work to different actors of the contemporary photography world, such as editors, photo editors or journalists, gallery owners, collectors, art center directors…
We will work on the basis of the experiences, references and sensitivity of the participant in order to define a subject, to find the angles of approach, the treatment and the technical choices. This practical application will be a springboard for the participant to continue develops his future projects.
