Photography is the result of personal choices, as well concerning the substance ( subject, purpose, point of view…) than the form ( aesthetic inclination, format, distance, instant, frame, light…). These highly subjective choices define the personality and the specificity of each photographer.

Photography is also more specifically a question of vision. If we take time to observe, to look at and for, we can find and develop our own sensibility and curiosity. Based on these considerations we will work on our « visual instincts ». The workshop will alternate shootings and brainstorming sessions, group or private.

The general idea is that everybody, with freedom and awareness, find his own way of doing, not reproducing stereotype
