Masterclass in Paris with Jeff Cowen

5-day photography masterclass with Jeff Cowen and Jim Casper

Location: Central Paris, France
Dates: October 18-22, 2012


The masterclass will be a 5 day marathon for photographers interested in making a significant vertical leap in their work. It is geared to fine art photography and reportage as art.

This masterclass is coordinated by Bilder Nordic School of Photography in Oslo, Norway, in partnership with Lens Culture in Paris, France.

The class will emphasize shooting, editing and the final print. Shooting will take place in central Paris and in the studio. Students will have the opportunity to work with street photography, the nude, still life, and abstraction during the course of the class. There will also be group visits to some photography-based cultural institutions throughout Paris. Mr. Cowen will stress how digital photographers can learn to use new technology while respecting the tradition of analogue-based photography and its position as a medium with respect to art history.
Career possibilities in photography and the artist’s path will also be topics for discussion. This class offers a unique perspective to create a dialogue with a working artist and an international photography critic, publisher and lecturer.
