Festival Workshops this Summer with Sophie

I am putting together a workshop programme to run over Summer. The theme, a favourite of mine is festivals. At this stage I imagine the workshops just running in Sydney, Australia but if there is interest I will look at other states.. and countries. If you are interested please email me at¬† I’m planning on having the programme details confirmed by October 2012. Sophie X

‘Once you miss it, it is gone forever..’ Cartier-Bresson 1957

“There is a creative fraction of a second when you are taking a picture. Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera. That is the moment the photographer is creative,” he said. “Oop! The Moment! Once you miss it, it is gone forever.” Cartier-Bresson, the Washington Post, 1957.

‘A Portrait is………truth’ Richard Avedon

“A portrait is not a likeness. The moment an emotion or fact is transformed into a photograph it is no longer a fact but an opinion. There is no such thing as inaccuracy in a photograph. All photographs are accuract. None of them is truth.” – Richard Avedon

Find a photographer you like and copy them. I almost got it, though I think my hand needs to be under my chin a bit more.
