From Aspromonte to Etna, encounter with the giants of the Mediterranean sea
produced by Bluocean with patronage of National Geographic Italy, will be directed by Carsten Peter – notable figure of the international photography scene and regular contributor to National Geographic Washington.
Sicily / Calabria, Italy
During the workshop, we will climb the summit of Mount Etna - the largest active volcano in Europe - then cross the Strait of Messina to get to the Park of Aspromonte, the extreme southern Apennine chain.
The purpose of the course is to provide a technical background to create a photo reportage in the National Geographic style, analyzing the steps required for its implementation: from the concept to the schematization of the project; from photographic practice to the editing; stimulating the critical sensibility (through the "daily critique") and the creativity of each participant. A mix of practice and theory to understand the “modus operandi” that is hidden behind a photo reportage.
These will be days of intense and challenging work, the pace of which will be dictated by the light: it will start from sunrise to sunset ... and beyond.
As already established in the latest edition of Bluocean’s workshops, there will also be time to enjoy the pleasure of food and recreational opportunities that the sites will offer us, in a pleasant and captivating atmosphere.
