You may think this is a bit premature. I tell you it is not. Arranging a Street Meet or a Workshop in a new city takes about a year. I have to go there several times to set up all.
The invitation for the Street Meet 2017 is already here. It will take place in Bergen, Norway three days in June. From June 16 to June 18, 2015. Three days of shooting.
The Street Meet 2017 happens in two different sections. First there is the preparation period, then there is the actual meet in Bergen.
During the preparation period you will be asked to load 10 of your best street photographs to a dedicated community. I will review each portfolio together with you to look for strengths, opportunities and even weaknesses. The result af that review will be part of your shooting script for Bergen.
Bergen is a hilly city and it might even rain. Both ask for a special approach to street photography.
The Street Meet 2017 come with at fee. The fee for participation is € 350.00 which needs to be paid by each participant. You can hold a place for this event by making a deposit of € 100.00 to this paypal account: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need to be at least 6 participants for this street meet to come true. Maximum number of participants is 12.
Travel costs, hotel cost and what you use when you are in Bergen are solely on your part but I would love to be helpful when asked. If you want this to be part of a longer trip to the western parts of Norway, I can give advise on that too. But you need to ask.
Westerns Norway is one of the most beautiful places to visit with its high mountains and deep fjords.
While you reflect on this please ask as many relevant questions you need to. It will be my honour answering them. Write directly to email@example.com or use the contact form below.
Yes, Bergen is my home town. I lived there till I was 22 years of age. Some things have changed but the adventure is the same. If not better.
The Street Meet in Bergen 2017 is for dedicated photographers.
