For the first time in Oman, Magnum photographer Stuart Franklin will lead a four-day workshop offering a unique and intensive photographic and traveling experience.

Intended for amateurs and professional photographers with a passion for travel and landscape photography, the workshop comprises four days spent alongside Stuart Franklin, as you shoot new work and develop your visual language, photographic identity, practical, technical and conceptual skills.

The workshop includes a two-day trip to the beautiful Ash Sharqiyah region with a stay-over on a farmstead, and is organized in partnership with Cure8.

The number of attendees will be limited to 12 and all participants will have a chance to have a one-on-one portfolio review with Stuart Franklin during the trip. Images will be reviewed at the end of each day to give the participants the opportunity to see their overall approach improve day by day.

Areas that will be covered during this Magnum Landscape Photography workshop:

– Mentoring by Magnum photographer Stuart Franklin
– Visual Style – Guiding you through technical, theoretical and aesthetic issues
– Individual portfolio reviews
