Signature Development with Erik Vroons
Professional Workshop


Workshop by Erik Vroons, Editor-at-large, GUP magazine
Who am I as an artist and what is my work about, exactly? These are fundamental questions in order to arrive at a successful career in photography – regardless of the genre or field of work.

The aim of this workshop is to develop and shape your ‘signature’ as a photographer by awareness of conceptual thinking; how to reflect on and to communicate a work in progress both visually and in written word; building and layering a story by editing.

Within the workshop we will work with students that arrive with self-initiated works in progress, in order to:

  • Shape the concept of a project in development;
  • Practice presentation of this concept, both written and verbally;
  • Apply practical information (i.e. how to improve a website);
  • Create awareness of platforms, exposure and related media characteristics (do you present your work as a book, an exhibition, on a website, as multi-media, etc?) train the skill of production and editing of a series towards a (digital) portfolio presentation.

Limited to 12 participants
