Hijacking Reality with Boris Eldagsen
Professional Workshop


What does an artist need to produce strong staged photography? Expensive camera equipment? Special light sources? Assistants? Actors? Set designers? Make-up? No! Just a good eye, intuition and a personal understanding of one‘s subject is all you need. Having worked with photo-media for 25 years, Boris Eldagsen will share his insights into how to get the most out of working with no budget.

This is a creativity workshop. Any camera will do. We will have no special location, no special lighting, no models. Just us and our creativity. During the course you will learn how to enhance your imagination and develop strategies to break conventional rules in the image finding process. You will leave with photographs, that you may have thought were never possible.

Limited to 12 participants
