© Alex Majoli

Alex Majoli’s masterclass requires students to start with introducing themselves through their photographic projects.

Over the course of 6 days the focus will be on how each student’s visual language can be improved, mainly by critiquing, shooting, editing and sequencing. Also content and artistic autonomy are basic topics in Alex Majoli’s teachings.

The importance of the individual as a photographer, his history, experiences and background are all related to the way the photographer will take a picture. The goal of the masterclass is to nurture and feed each student own unique photographic vision as much as possible.

The masterclass is divided into two workshops, one in summer and one in spring, both in 6 consecutive days. By the end of the first class (summer) Alex Majoli will advice every student how to proceed with their project. In the following 6 months each student will have private sessions with Alex Majoli through skype, email, phone, etc., (according to his available time) in which he will advice on how to develop the project to not only achieve the best results for the proposed project, but mainly for the development of one’s own artistic vision in order to maintain a lasting quality.

During the second session, all the students shall show their progress to all the class and shall be able to finalize their projects by the end of the Masterclass.
