We’re back!

Jan Scholz and I are thrilled to announce that we are teaming up to teach our third workshop together. This time in… Portugal!

I can honestly say that the times we have teamed up to teach and create are some of the happiest memories of my life. From the “Film” Show in Idaho and Las Vegas where we met, to Spain, The Canary Islands & Belgium, the workshops we have put on together have been such positive experiences filled with amazing people.

What it is:

Film & Friends has always been about getting friendly people who are passionate about art photography together in an interesting space to create together. This one will be no different. Ryan and Jan will share about their art and why they create what they do, how they do. They will teach the technicals of shooting film in various formats and the way to work with subjects to create personal, emotional images. It will be a chance to a share a love of tangible art. Each student will receive a signed print from both Ryan and Jan. Most of all it will be a chance to create beautiful work in an inspiring location. We will spend most of both full workshop days creating. Jan and Ryan will both demonstrate how they conduct a photoshoot as well as assisting students with improving on making the images they want to create.

What it isn’t:

A business seminar. Neither of us have pursued photography as a business venture and will primarily be speaking about how to make work that is personally meaningful. Film & Friends also is not a space to show off or worry about impressing anyone. We have been blessed in the past to have incredibly kind groups of attendees and we are hopeful that will continue to be the case.

What’s included:

Drinks and a small welcome get together night of Sept 1.

A light lunch and snacks on both workshop days, Sept 2&3.

Two full workshop days (10:00-17:00) of instruction and shooting.

Dinner together at the end of the workshop.

Several models to work with. So far we have Manon joining us.

A signed print from Ryan & Jan.
