 While shooting you are facing reality but composing, recomposing or dealing with the arrangement of the natural light can be a first step who becomes misleading if you forget that  every human being has his own psychological reality, often based on phantasm or repressed memories, stronger than « outside » reality and introducing interpretation.



Each participant will show his own portfolio followed by the the presentation of FH’s one.

Before getting to the heart of the master class matter you will need to write a synopsis, kind of skeleton of the future series and as an helpful direction to follow for the realization of the story.

Ideally you should have finished the full story just before the end of the workshop so that we could have time enough to discuss and analyse the result all together while showing it on a screen.




- Any documents (pictures, portfolio) allowing to assess your experience, skills and style.

- Digital camera(s) (Being based in an isolated Corsican village, it is difficult to work with analog photography
