THE RURAL WORKSHOP

1486214423884

February 27 – March 2nd, 2017

Barcelona, Spain

http://www.theruralworkshop.com/#therural

It all started as a friends meeting and now it’s almost an entire week to live, share and make image go viral.

It doesn’t matter if you are a wedding photographer or a wedding videographer; both things are important because you work with images and tell stories.

#TRW is open to everybody, but if you shoot super expensive weddings, with a lot of gear and your clients pretend to be Hollywood stars…sorry this is not your place!

It’s just the other way around! A whole community involved in this project. It’s amazing.

Stay up all night, drink rioja wine, hug each other, smile, cry…that lasts forever!

THIS IS NOT A WORKSHOP, A CONVENTION OR AND AWARDS CEREMONY.

This is all a team work, everybody has a say and we all cooperate to make it happen. It’s a solid and organic project that grows thanks to all of you.

Nothing else I can say! If you want to find yourself and learn as a team, #TRW is waiting for you.

8:30am – 10:00am

Kirsten has spent the last 20 years of her life studying, observing, teaching and photographing children. With a degree in child psychology, a minor in elementary education, a background in classroom instruction and over a decade of refining her family photojournalism skills, Kirsten will introduce you to the freedom of letting go of environmental control during family sessions so you can focus all of the control behind the camera.  She will share the fundamentals of documentary family photography, including insights learned over the years about children and their often funny behavior. She will also share what motivates, inspires and pushes her during each and every shoot, identifying the key moments she hopes to capture each time she spends a whole day with a family.
