New Date for Light Matters Masterclass: Creative Expression
Samantha Chrysanthou, Darwin Wiggett and I are announcing a date change for the first ever Light Matters Masterclass event: Creative Expression. This unique event will now be held November 2 through 6, 2011. It remains based at Aurum Lodge in the fantastic David Thompson Country region of Alberta, during an exciting time of year that is ripe with photographic opportunities.
The concept of an intensive, mentoring-based photo experience that blends in-class instruction on key topics with targeted assignments during field outings has generated some strong interest among aspiring photographers. The ideal participants are looking for something more than a photo tour designed to put them in great spots, or classroom workshops focused on camera theory or Photoshop techniques alone. For more insight on how the Light Matters Masterclass event differs from many other events, see Darwin’s post on Photo Tour vs. Photo Workshop.
Despite the strong interest, feedback was that our originally announced date in late 2010 was simply coming up too quickly for prospective attendees to work the event into their travel plans. As a result we have bumped the date back one year to provide ample planning time. So mark those calendars for the first week of November 2011!
