Photography Workshop – Masterclass – “Developing a photographic project. Inventing your own language” with Margot Wallard, 6 months

From September 17, 2022 to February 26, 2023, photographer Margot Wallard will host a six-month master class during which participants will develop and design a photographic project.

Goal

This photo master class is spread over six months during which you will develop and design a photographic project under the direction of Margot Wallard, photographer represented by the Vu gallery assisted by Stephan Norsic, photographer and manager of Zoom’Up.

This photo master class is for people who want to learn and deepen the construction of a photographic narrative, whether it is related to fiction, reality or both. Whether the participant already has a photographic project in progress that he wishes to start or finalize (model, exhibition scenography) or whether he is losing inspiration, this workshop will provide him with lines of thought, working methods ( editing, sequencing, association of images) and will lead him to question his way of transcribing the world.

The main objective of this training is to allow the student to acquire the autonomy necessary to succeed in his professional career. It is a question of learning working methods to develop one’s projects but also to position oneself and present one’s work to the various actors in the world of contemporary photography, such as publishers, photo editors or journalists, gallery owners, collectors, directors of art centers…

Zoom’Up is based on the experiences, references and sensitivity of the participant to define a subject, find the angles of approach, the treatment and the technical choices. This practical experience will be a springboard for the participant to continue developing their future projects.
