PhotoKlassik Akademie Street Photography Workshop partners with JCH Street Pan
Those of you who follow my posts regularly will have seen that I am writing for both Photoklassik (German language) and PhotoKlassik International (English language) magazines.
We are now expanding our cooperation, and the PhotoKlassik Akademie will be using JCH Street Pan film for their bilingual workshop on Street Photography on the 10th November in Frankfurt, Germany. Which is a huge honour for me.
Practical and Enjoyable
This will be much more than just “walking and clicking!” The PhotoKlassik Akademie workshops are designed to give participants a wide range of experiences and useful tools.
Firstly, the instructors will be Ivan Slunjski, a talented and experienced film street photographer, and Marwan El-Mozayen, the editor-in-chief of PhotoKlassik International. They are passionate advocates for film photography and love to pass on their considerable knowledge in a friendly and easily accessible way.
The workshop includes not only their expert guidance, but also JCH Street Pan film material, Tetenal developer chemicals and paper, usage of a darkroom at Charlie Engel Fotolab 2.0, and scanning with Silverfast software.
The first day will be spent talking about different aspects of street photography, for instance how to plan effectively (an often under-valued and important part of the process), how to choose your gear, getting over feeling uncomfortable shooting strangers, and how to bring out your own aesthetic in your photos.
The films will be developed on site in a portable lab. On the second day, you will be printing and scanning, learning to the get the best out of your photos in preparation to share them with others. The first-class equipment will include a Heiland split grade controller and Leica Focomat v35 enlarger. It promises to be a really great couple of days of photography.
There are still a few spaces open, so if you are in the neighborhood you can grab a ticket here:
