Photography Workshop • VHS Fotografie Workshop • November 2016

On the last weekend of October the workshop on urban photography was scheduled, now for the 5th time since 2014.  We started the sunny Sunday with the „Pink Umbrella Challenge“. Here is what we came home with: Das letzte Oktoberwochenende war für den Workshop „StattAnsichten“ reserviert, den ich seit 2014 an der VHS Bonn anbiete. Am Sonntagvormittag – ein goldenes Herbsttag – stand die „Pink Umbrella Challenge“ auf dem Plan. Und mit diesen Bildern sind wir nach Hause gekommen:

Photography workshop April 2016 • VHS Workshop April 2016

A week ago I started the 4th workshop on urban photography at the adult education center in Bonn. The weather on Saturday as a bit of a challenge, not unusual for April. Anyway we found a lot of nice spots around the brutal architecture of the city hall buliding. Enjoy some of the highlights!   Vor einer Woche fand mein Workshop „StattAnsichten“ an der VHS Bonn schon zum vierten Mal statt. Das Wetter war apriltypisch „abwechslungsreich“, aber rund um das, nun ja, umstrittene Stadthaus Bonn haben wir wieder einige spannende Motive entdeckt. Viel Spaß!      

Photography workshop • VHS-Kurs-StattAnsichten

This years second workshop on urban photography started with an exploration of the city hall, a 70s building that marks the skyline of Bonn and whose future is much debated. Anyway the creative and open approach led the team to new and diverse perspectives. Here are some of the great images from this morning: – Der zweite VHS-Workshop in diesem Jahr startete wieder mit einer Expedition zum Bonner Stadthaus, dessen Zukunft ja umstritten ist. Unser freier und kreativer Ansatz hat wieder zu spannenden und vielseitigen Perspektiven geführt. Hier eine Best-of-Auswal von diesem Vormittag:

VHS Workshop • Pink Umbrella Challenge

On the second day of my photography workshop we started another team approach, named the „Pink Umbrella Challenge“. The main subject was – you name it – a pink umbrella. We swarmed out to the city in teams of two or three, each group equipped with an umbrella, some cameras and a lot of creativity.

VHS Workshop May 2015

As last year the first expedition of my VHS workshop on urban photography led us to the Bonn city hall, a block of concrete and glas build in the late 70s. It dominates the Bonn skyline in a rather bulky way and is usually referred to as „hässlich“ (which simply translates into ugly). Anyway it was a perfect start for the weekend and the variety of images the participants of the workshop delivered still amazes me. So here is a first collection. Thanks to all who made this weekend a creative explosion!

VHS workshop • „Urban Art“

The workshop in September is some weeks ago and the next one is already in planning (May 9 & 10). One of the challenges on the second day was to look for artwork in the city and find unusual perspectives. Here are some of the great results.
