Copenhagen is the epitome of Scandinavian culture where Modernist lamps light New Nordic tables and bridges over pristine waterways buzz with cycling commuters. It is also a photographer’s dream – few cultures have the reverence for simplicity, detail and understated beauty. These tenets drive everything from Copenhagen's colourful architecture to its world-famous furniture and lighting, which have created a city of genuine visual pleasure, laced with a sense of quiet wonder and delight.
The five-days in Copenhagen will provide a creative environment, where Alumni who are passionate about digital or film photography will receive inspiration, technical advice, and constructive feedback on their images. It will be a creative and inspirational exploration of one of Europe’s most impressive cities. With its strong cultural focus, the trip may also be suitable for partners or friends who are not photographers.
Whether you have a Nikon or Canon DSLR; a mirror-less M4/3 camera; a point-and-shoot camera, or just an iPhone –learn how to compose, expose, and capture better images. This is an excellent opportunity to improve your photography and to experience the beauty and cultural heritage of Denmark’s capital city. The visit will take in some amazing Scandinavian architecture; urban landscapes; waterways; museums and galleries, and sites of literary significance. The diverse visits include a shoot in the Kronberg Castle (Hamlet’s Elsinore) as well as a visit to Karen Blixen’s House (‘Out of Africa’), the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and the iconic Carlsberg Brewery. Copenhagen's cultural offerings are rich and eclectic. Two afternoons have been left free for people to take up suggestions from David or pursue their own interests such as exploring Copenhagen royal palaces crammed with blue-blood jewels or one of Scandinavia's largest collection of Islamic art, tucked away in a collector's neoclassical mansion.
