This four day workshop will take you to the magnificent natural environment of Gros Morne National Park of Canada, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. From a base camp at Lomond on Bonne Bay, you will explore the centre of the park. You will also visit more intimately the shores of Bonne Bay as well as other corners of the park, an excellent occasion to see nature close-up.

Personal Vision

Personal Vision is the ability to see something that only you can see because it comes from within yourself. It is the awareness of using your imagination to create an idea or concept that can drive your visual expression. How clear your personal vision is, how closely integrated it is to your photographic practice, determines how successful you will be in creating photographs that are unique and expressive. The goal of this workshop is to help the photographer identify what drives their visual curiosity and their impulsion to be visually expressive. It will explore how to integrate personal vision in the mental and emotional experience and artistic craftsmanship of ongoing photographic practice.
