This 5-day workshop will be about finding your own unique vision of Oslo by using the camera to explore the city in a direct, spontaneous way. 

Open to both serious amateurs and professional photographers alike, ‘Finding Your Vision’ is a workshop that aims to develop your own personal photographic approach.

This workshop will also be about learning how to edit your work intuitively, and will also include discussions about how to take your photography to the next level.  

Participants joining the workshop, will also benefit from an individual private portfolio session with the instructors. The workshop teachers are Alex Webb and Rebecca Norris Webb, who, between the two of them, have published 18 photography books and have taught photography workshops for the past 20 years on six continents.

Note: This is a workshop for photographers who collaborate with the world, not for those who dramatically alter their photographs digitally.

Applications close on the January 22, 2018, or until the workshop fills.
