On the occasion of NOOR’s 10th Anniversary & the NOOR BY NOOR exhibition at f3 – freiraum für fotografie, GfHF & NOOR are pleased to invite you to Berlin for two special workshops with Tanya Habjouqa and Sebastián Liste.


Workshop with Tanya Habjouqa

13 – 16 July 2017


Where: f3 – freiraum für fotografie, Waldemarstr. 17, 10179 Berlin

Who: max. 12 participants. The workshop is open to all professional photographers or students of photography, that want to improve their professional skills.
Cost: 480 Euro, including drinks & snacks during the workshop.
Application: http://apply.gfhf.eu. Applications will be processed on a first come, first serve basis.
Application deadline: 22 June 2017

In this workshop participants should come prepared to share & develop their personal
long-term photography project, as well as to shoot a “quick hire” assignment in Berlin during the workshop.* This intensive program engages participants to pursue both a self-directed project, as well as a quick assignment at the same time – a challenge & skill Tanya knows well!

Each participant will have one on one time with Tanya to share their personal long-term photography project with her & to discuss & strategize around image-selection, presentation & ways the project could be further developed.

Additionally, all participants will be asked to shoot a “quick hire” assignment in Berlin on the theme Passage. The theme can be interpreted broadly & participants will have one and a half days during the workshop to shoot. From the shoot they will prepare a concise pitch to present to the group for feedback during the final day of the workshop.
* If participants can enhance their personal long-term project through shooting in Berlin, they are welcome to do so in place of working on the theme Passage

This workshop is sponsored in part by Nikon Germany.
