If you have a complete, or near complete story/project, this may suit you best. Walter will not only narrow down your images to a presentation format (seldom you find people willing to look at more than 20-30 photographs on a story) but also will help you with the sequencing, which helps your story’s coherence.

As a prerequisite for this workshop, you will need to bring along a minimum of 40 and a maximum of 120 photographs. The photographs are to be printed in small prints (e.g. 4R size) and you will need to bring the original jpg files as well. The end result will be a main edit of your work that will be ideal for your portfolio, project or exhibition. 

Walter will take you through the edit as well as explaining the reasons why he chose those images and the order presented. This will not only showcase your very best images, but it will also show your work as a story teller.

In addition, participants who are interested will receive an in-depth assessment of their project or photography. Walter will give you feedback on it and to discuss on where you want to take your work.

This is a not to be missed opportunity for our community of photographers in Malaysia, to learn from Walter.  Seats are limited to only 10 participants. So please hurry to register your attendance with us.
