Soon this page will be “the showcase” for workshops. Exploring the two website (this one and “The marketplace” that is linked) you will have the exact dates to join Nico Zaramella’s Workshops, detailed plans and prices. Above all, my workshops are focused on raw conversion, editing, post production and slideshow software use. New workshops are now “in progress” i.e.: Wildlife Photography, Landscape Photography, and Natural Light and Led Light Outdoor macrophotography, Basic Photography. The planning of a workshop is not so easy and frequently I need to work with other professional photographers to get good results. In Italy my good friend Nicola Verardo, one of the best still-life and fashion photographer I know, is my ideal partner.
Usually we are both present during every lesson and we try to interact with all people. Workshops last two to three months (one class-lesson a week) and we are thinking about “outdoor” lessons too and “full-immersion” workshops. It’s an hard work for everyone but sometimes we take it lightly !!!. Many people want to join our workshops so when you see the notice … try to be quick ! Remember that you don’t take a photograph, you make it (A.Adams). So if you don’t learn deeply you cannot build your own way to be a photographer but above all you cannot “make” one picture, you will be only able to take it.
Bavarian Forest. Austria.
Ansel Adams also said “There are no rules for good photographs, there are only good photographs“. So I cannot make photographs in the place of you. I can only work with you and I will try to give anything I know but no one can be sure to become a good photographer: Henry Cartier Bresson said “…Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst…” but I think he was an optimist.
Soon you’ll find some news … . I can also organize workshops for clubs: if you need it use the contact form.
Yawning Seal. South Georgia.
Gentoo Penguins. Falkland Archipelago.
Every artist I suppose has a sense of what they think has been the importance of their work. But to ask them to define it is really a fair question. My real answer would be, the answer is on the wall. Paul Strand.
I think that it’s very diffult to be a good wildlife photographer without deeply learning the “bedrocks”. But it isn’t enough. The road is complex: I think that you need to study with teachers, you need books, masterclasses, magazines and, above all, you need humility, respect for other photographers’ work … and learning to use the waste basket. During the development of this website I’ll write something about making good photographs and about the correct use of the waste basket.
