Vancouver Photo Workshops proudly presents a five day workshop, "Choice" with internationally acclaimed photographer Gregory Heisler.
Set in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, this is an incredible opportunity to expand your visual horizons under the guidance of one of the great masters in contemporary photography. Take part and experience a renewed sense of energy, inspiration and vitality in your photography.
Gregory is a sought after lecturer and teacher at scores of international seminars.
Nationally, he has taught at the International Center of Photography (ICP) and The New School for Social Research, the National Geographic Society, The Smithsonian Institution (Masters of Still Photography Program), the William A. Reedy Memorial Lecture series and in the Master of Fine Arts Program at New York's School of Visual Arts.
While his principal focus is portraiture, Gregory's enthusiasm, curiosity, and drive bring him an unconventional range of projects. His love of the craft, manifested in his "hands-on" approach to every aspect of the photographic process, keeps him intimately involved in the creation of his imagery.
Workshop course description provided by Gregory Heisler:
It’s all about the choices you make; the conscious and unconscious decisions that conspire to define your vision.
This class will absolutely heighten your sensitivity to this process, facilitate increased awareness of the possibilities open to you, and inspire you to work with new and existing tools in effective and unexpected ways.
This class is not about validating your existing work; it’s about approaching and creating your next picture: the one you haven’t made yet.
Gregory Heisler is a New York-based photographer whose technical mastery and thoughtful responsiveness allow him to creatively interpret an unusually broad range of subjects.
He is perhaps best known for the more than fifty Time magazine cover portraits he has created, yet his trademark editorial portrait covers and essays for Life, Sports Illustrated, Gentlemen's Quarterly (GQ), Esquire, ESPN, House and Garden and The New York Times Magazine have also received wide acclaim. He has photographed award-winning advertising campaign's for American Express, Benson & Hedges, Dewar's Profiles, Nike, Merrill Lynch, and Zocor.
Gregory has been profiled in magazine articles in Esquire, Communication Arts, Life, and numerous industry periodicals. Among the kudos he has received are the ASMP Corporate Photographer of the Year Award (1986), the Leica Medal of Excellence (1988), the World Image Award (1991), and the Alfred Eisenstadt Award (2000).
