WITH NICK DANZIGER & RORY MACLEAN
Stories can entrance, engage, even possess us. Every one of us has a story to tell: factual or fictional, cool documentary or sparkling flight of the imagination. But to become an accomplished storyteller one needs time, a conducive environment, and sensitive guides to direct and refine individual talent.
Next month, Nick Danziger and Rory MacLean, two of Europe’s most intrepid and intuitive chroniclers, will lead an exclusive, five-day writing and photography workshop in Monaco. Selected participants will be guided and supported on their creative journey, and will be offered two days’ post-production help in Lightroom and Photoshop from the renowned UK digital wizard David Mallows. Both amateur and professional photographers and writers are invited to apply. No experience is necessary. The only requirement is the passion to tell a story.
The course will include talks on the craft of narration, and introductory workshops on gathering material, note-taking, voice and structure. Nick will project selected photo stories and explain his working method, while Rory will underline the importance of writing from the heart, using honesty and personal experience to fill one’s creative work with feeling and excitement.
Above all, time will be spent in one-to-one discussions, helping to draw out individual skills, and – if desired – to complete a specific story which individuals may want to tell, in words and/or in images, during the workshop. Work will be critiqued and discussed in depth, skills and techniques enhanced, with each text or portfolio given special, personal attention.
