A unique pathway to exploring your photography

In this imaginative and intensive workshop Eileen and Olaf will combine a study of the works of some of the masters of photography with Eastern philosophy to inspire you to explore a new visual style.


  • This workshop answers the question, ‘how do I develop as a photographic artist?’
  • During the week we will cover…
  • The idea of seeking artistry through evaluating the works of the masters is thousands of years old. We will tap into the intriguing Japanese practice of Shu Ha Ri which embodies the principles of study, assimilation and innovation.
  • Shu (study) involves slowing down to gain an in depth understanding of a masters work and internalising that style of shooting.
  • Ha (assimilation) switches the emphasis to back to your own work. We reflect on how these new approaches to seeing can benefit your personal style.
  • Ri (innovation) is where we no longer need the master. The foundation of the first stages breeds the self confidence to shoot in refreshing new ways and opens new doors to your creativity.


  • The disciplined deep study of a master and this Eastern philosophy will elevate your work to new heights.
  • You will leave this workshop inspired and find your personal work enhanced.
  • This workshop is intended for those who have a working knowledge of their camera and want to expand their creative and artistic skills.
