- 2015 NEW YEAR and SPRING WORKSHOPS: Workshops for the first part of 2015 are now scheduled. The year kicks off with two different workshops about composition, the universal basis for all strong images. Suitable for a range of levels and just about any camera, the workshops are all about the visual side of photography. First there's a half-day introduction to foundation principles, coupled with a shoot so that principles can be put immediately into practice. Second there's a full day in-depth look at a compelling range of compositional approaches that can make or break an image. In February and March, the topics range from editing to camera craft to light. These are all stand-alone workshops that can be taken in any combination depending on a photographer's experience and interests. See Trevor's Workshop pages for session descriptions and the full schedule.
- NEW VENUE: In addition to the in-town studio near Avenue Louise, workshops will occasionally be held at Trevor's new home workshop space in Keerbergen, near Mechelen. This is an attractive green area with nearby rivers and canals providing great photo opportunities for practical shoots. The medieval city of Mechelen itself also presents plenty of historic architecture, fascinating back streets, and a bicycle culture for sharp shooters! It's an easy 40 minutes by car from Brussels centre (pick-up and drop-off pooling can usually be arranged), and offfers a novel and refreshing alternative to Brussels more well-known sights. A planned workshop on Travel Photography and another on The Changing Light will inaugurate the new venue, both planned in March. See the Workshop section of the site for dates.
- INTRODUCING PHOTO TOURS IN 2015: Short tours in photogenic locations are a thoroughly enjoyable way to capture stunning images while developing new skills. Planning is well under way for a 5-day autumn photo tour in the Alsace wine region of France, combining uniquely picturesque landscapes and villages with true working vineyards. Trevor knows the area extremely well, and has led photo tours there in the past. A little later in the year, a 4-day visit to Venice will allow a small group to photograph the magic of the city when the tourists are less numerous and the light more atmospheric than in the usual visiting season. Anyone interested is invited to call or email Trevor - with no obligation of course - to find out more or to contribute ideas or requirements at this planning stage.
