Now we are happy to announce another one this June, this time together with Philip Bloom, again in the beatiful Majorca, Spain. Philip Bloom, Nino Leitner & me: 3-day-intensive course! This is not your ordinary DSLR workshop, typically lasting less than a day. This is a full 3-day-intensive Masterclass, teaching you absolutely everything you ever wanted to know or learn about this cameras. It will be VERY hands-on, you will be shooting for a large part of these days, and we will divide the process into theory, lots of practical shooting & post productions. We are working on the exact schedule and are talking to all our attendees to serve their needs and listen to what they want to learn more about.

By | Workshops | 2 Comments

Only in German: If you want to get more information about my english speaking HDSLR workshops, just go ahead to this site! You also can read some feedback of my workshops right here. Ich veranstalte am Samstag, den 27.11.2010 einen HDSLR-Workshop in der wunderschönen Stadt Hamburg. Nach einigen Firmen-Workshops und der HDSLR Masterclass musste ich die Termine jedes mal ein wenig verschieben, da ich in Europa unterwegs war und keine Zeit gefunden hatte für die Organisation. Jetzt habe ich endlich die notwendige Zeit mich darum zu kümmern und ich freue mich schon auf meinen Workshop in der Hansestadt Hamburg. Ich habe bereits einen sehr schönen Schulungsraum in einer Canon Vertragswerkstatt in Hamburg, muss aber noch Einzelheiten klären und werde sobald es dann auch fix ist die Adressdaten mit euch teilen. Bei meinen Workshops wird es neben theoretischen Wissen auch einen sehr praxisbezogenen Part geben. Wir haben die Möglichkeit jede Menge Ausrüstung zu testen. Dank unserer Sponsoren (Carl Zeiss, Denz, Kessler Crane, Genus, Letus…) habe ich jede Menge Equipment dabei, das auch direkt getestet werden kann. Das Hands-on ist für viele Teilnehmer immer eine ganz tolle Sache, da man meist nicht die Möglichkeit hat Ausrüstung zu testen und dann zu entscheiden,…
