FotoFilmic Master Workshops program is designed to facilitate access to the celebrated practice of some of today’s most influential photographic artists. Conveniently scheduled during weekends and in the midsts of Bowen Island’s amazing natural scenery (Vancouver, BC, Canada), FotoFilmic’s Weekend Master Workshops are sure to inspire and boost the creative vision of all burgeoning photographers! 

Central to our workshops concept is also to re-experience a kind of natural artistic conviviality or camaraderie lost to globalization and instant communication: our small Pacific island setting slows down time and invites both the conversational and the personal to take part unscheduled making for meaningful networking.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION


“Todd Hido’s suburban photographs juxtapose his signature, moody landscapes, shrouded by the filmic glances he depicts in his portraits, creating a series of cinematic moments which compel the viewer into his own universe of memory and intimacy.


Join Hido as he shares his expertise in this exclusive weekend workshop. The course will cover the experiences, strategies, and influences that form and shape a photographer’s career.
Hido will describe in detail the process of making his latest book Intimate Distance. He will candidly present his own work and provide answers to the elusive questions all photographers ask themselves: Where does my work come from? What does it say? How can I express myself in a more effective way? What does it mean—and does that even matter?
The friendly review of student portfolios will follow, and each student will receive personalized feedback and tasks for improvement.”

ABOUT BOWEN ISLAND


Bowen Island has long been known since the early 1900’s as Vancouver’s gate-away to nature taking Vancouverites far from the city yet being so close and easily accessible. Still a popular one-day destination today, Bowen Island sits less than 2 miles to the mainland coast at its closest point making for a short 20mn taxi boat ride from downtown Vancouver, and an even shorter 15mn ferryboat crossing from Horseshoe Bay in West Vancouver. The island itself is about 3.5 miles wide by 7.5 miles long and is being called home by up to 3,400 residents at the peak of the summer. Famously, there are no camping grounds, hotels or developed resorts on the island, a testimony to the strong independent mind of its widely artistic/creative community that forces most visitors to vacate of the end of the day. This has helped preserve a sense of authenticity and simplicity living on the island, enjoying its natural beaches and small village life less than an hour away from Vancouver’s bustling urban culture. “The Cove” where BC ferryboats dock almost every hour of the day serves as its main shopping and dining district featuring a marina with half a dozen fine restaurants, a few coffee places, a local pub and general store, several boutique stores, and about half a mile further up an “Artisan Square” with art and craft galleries, a gym and more.
