Attending a photo workshop will always boost a photographer’s vision, skills and expression. I say that as both one who is attending workshops on a regular basis, as well as one who has taught plenty of workshops all over the world. The intensity of being in an environment in which the focus is entirely on photography and on each and every participant’s personal development, is indescribable. Being able to spend days fully concentrated on nothing but capturing and discussing photographs is invaluable for any photographer’s development.

Whether attending a weeklong or just a one-day workshop, the benefits are profuse. I see that in every workshop I teach. Every single participant typically makes giant steps in his or her personal development. As a workshop teacher it’s always great fun to see maybe an initial frustration due to being challenged, turn into major shifts and profound changes in the way a participant perceives the world through the camera, and leverages his or her photographic approach.

I love teaching workshops. First of all I believe I personally learn just as much as any participant. More importantly, though; it gives me great satisfaction to be able to share my knowledge and not the least pour off my experience in giving invaluable feedback. Picture feedback is the backbone of any of my workshops—and something all participants I have had attending my workshops say they appreciate the most. In all modesty, I know—from feedback from the participants and my own gut feeling—I am able to speak to each photographer’s level and push her or him in constructive ways into capturing photos with heart and soul.

This is what a few previous participants have said about my workshops:

“I’ve learned a lot, you encouraged me to try out something new, and the organization was perfect.”

– Martin Frey, participant in Prague

“Thank you so much for a top workshop and follow-up.”

– Jill Johannessen, participant in Villajoyosa

“The workshop was all about constructive critique that inspired me to stretch myself to levels I had never perceived before. I believe I am a better photographer today than I was 10 days ago.”

– Are Actander Vik, participant in Bolivia

Upcoming Workshops

“The Personal Expression” in Bergen, Norway, May 3rd to May 5th 2024

This is the workshop for those who want to develop their photographic voice. Over an extended weekend in Bergen, Norway, in May we will focus on the visual language, creativity and how to make it all work together for strong photographs with a personal narrative. During the workshop we will be working on how to create photographs that express your purpose and reflect your view of that which you photograph. Throughout the two and a half days the workshop lasts, you will become more aware of the choices you make and, not least, become more aware of how you may use the visual language in your photography. It’s all about your voice and your personal expression.

“On the Tracks of Che Guevara” in Bolivia, autumn 2024 – exact dates TBA

For me it’s extra exciting to announce the re-launch of this photo workshop in Bolivia. This will be a truly adventurous workshop, in which we follow the footsteps of Che Guevara, up until he was captured and killed by the Bolivian army. We will travel through small mountain towns and off the beaten tracks in a lush and beautiful landscape. We will meet local people and we will talk with some of those who took care of Che Guevara after he was captured. In all modesty, this is quite an extraordinary photo workshop. It will be a great opportunity to discover one of the most beautiful countries in South America, rich in culture, history and nature.
