Fine-Art Winter Photography Workshop - Held in Saskatoon and Regina (Canada) - With Olivier Du Tre and Marc Koegel - February 8 - 12, 2023:
UPDATE: 2023 Workshop has only 3 seats left!
Join Photographers Oliver Du Tre and Marc Koegel for this unique fine-art photography workshop!
Since 2014, Oli's and Marc's winter workshops have attracted photographers seeking not only the unique photographic opportunities but also the honest and in-depth critique and review sessions the workshops include.
The winter landscapes of Saskatchewan are nothing short of amazing. You can expect to see abandoned farms and homesteads, lone trees, grain elevators and beautiful minimalist scenes such as subtle snow drifts, fence lines and much more. All all of this with virually no other photographers around - don't tell your friends about it when you're reading this :-)) If you appreciate the work by masters such as Michael Kenna, then this workshop is most definitely for you!
Oli and Marc have scouted the area extensively and always try to make the workshop different than the previous one by putting new locations in the mix.
For 2023, we are offering an extended version of our winter workshop in Saskatchewan. In contrast to Alberta, snow is more abandunt and virtually guaranteed. The skies are even bigger and the landscape sparse with a higher number of abandoned buildings and churches. It will be cold for sure, but the photographic opportunities for winter photography make more than up for it.
Oli’s elegant photographic style and his ability to point out the unseen, seamlessly mesh with Marc's technical expertise. Together, Oliver and Marc will not only teach, but also inspire you to see the world that little bit different.
As this is a winter workshop, you must be prepared for temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius (equals -40 Fahrenheit). Yes, we understand that this is cold, but as a trade-off this workshop will place you in one-of-a-kind locations that will yield very unique, minimalist fine-art photographs that cannot be duplicated or captured at any other time of the year!
A vital element of this workshop is the honest feedback you’ll receive on your work. You'll be working one-on-one with Oli and Marc in the field, and in the classroom the duo will provide everyone with ample in-depth reviews of their work.
This workshop will meet at the Courtyard By Marriott Saskatoon Airport. This hotel will be our base for the first 3 days / nights. For days 4 and 5, we will be in Regina where we'll be based at the Home Inn and Suites Hotel. We are planning to arrive back in the Saskatoon area by Sunday (February 12) 6pm. Note that you don't have to stay at the aformentioned hotels...you're welcome to stay anywhere in the area and simply meet the group each day.
Both of these hotels provide quick and easy access to our shooting locations. This way, we can maximize our time in the field together.
Please note that the workshop fee includes does NOT include hotel accommodation nor transportation to our photography locations. We provide maps and driving directions for everyone. If you don't want, or can, take your own car then you can also book a seat in one of our vehicle(s) during the online registration process.
We recommend you to book a room at the hotels mentioned above, but you're welcome to book anywhere else (and then simply meet us at the hotel the workshop is based in).
Please use the following dates when booking your hotels:
- Saskatoon February 8 to 10 (we begin at 9am, so you may want to book the first night on February 7th)
- Regina February 10 to 12 (we will be travelling back towards Saskatoon upon checkout on the 12th)
Digital camera equipment, or film in any format (including 4x5 and larger) can be used. You can choose to shoot in black and white and / or color.
