The Photomarathon is a competition and workshop in one. Under the guidance of a professional photographer you learn new skills that you can put into practice right away.
In the first part of the Photomarathon you get to know your camera better. Both photography technique and making a nice shot are discussed. Based on the chosen theme, a photographer then gives an inspiring photography lecture with lots of example material.
Do you also want to do a Photomarathon? This is possible, for example, with your class, the club or the company. Scroll down for more information or contact Amber at email@example.com.
In the second part of the Photomarathon, the participants go into the field to take pictures. Every 45 minutes the group receives a new assignment to take photos. In total there are four to five assignments. Everyone submits his or her best – unprocessed – photo for each assignment.
To conclude, everyone’s best photos in the group are discussed. This way everyone gets feedback about the work done. May the best image win!
The marathon is based upon a previously agreed upon theme. This can be a specific theme such as landscape or portrait; or more abstract such as healthy aging or environment. For example, the emphasis can be placed on specific photo techniques or, for example, the company mission.
| Introduction program and theme | Photography workshop technique and composition | Inspirational lecture a photographer | Photography contest | Work discussion The level of the Photomarathon is adjusted to the group, from entry level to semi-professional level.
The Photomarathon lasts a whole day; we can always discuss making the programme shorter. The marathon is situated at the Biotope in Haren or on location (ask for the conditions). We can accommodate a maximum of 20 participants. Every participant works with their own camera. Photos are digitally uploaded for the final work discussion.
