Creative Workshop with Nick Danziger and Rory MacLean “Telling Tales: The Art of Creating Stories in Images and Words”

Monaco, 25–29 September 2017

Stories can entrance, engage, even possess us. Every one of us has a story to tell: factual or fictional, cool documentary or sparkling flight of the imagination. But to become an accomplished storyteller one needs time, a conducive environment, and sensitive guides to direct and refine individual talent.

This autumn, Nick Danzigerand Rory MacLean, two of Europe’s most intrepid and intuitive chroniclers, will lead an exclusive, five-day writing and photography workshop in Monaco. Selected participants will be guided and supported on their creative journey, and will be offered two days’ post-production help in Lightroom and Photoshop from the renowned UK digital wizard David Mallows. Both amateur and professional photographers and writers are invited to apply. No experience is necessary. The only requirement is the passion to tell a story.

Nick Danziger is one of the world’s finest photo journalists and a naturally gifted visual story-teller. His photographic work is held in museum collections worldwide. His ‘mirror’ image of Tony Blair and George W. Bush shot during a 30-day, ground-breaking study of a Prime Minister at war won the
World Press Photo Award.

Rory MacLean is the author of twelve books including several top tens, the most recent being Berlin: Imagine a City, a book of the year and ‘the most extraordinary work of history I’ve ever read’ according to the Washington Post. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Literature and has received many
awards, including from the Canada Council and Arts Council of England.

David Mallows has 20 years’ combined photographic industry experience in both hardware and software. He has been a presenter for Adobe Systems ukfor the past 8 years, regularly presenting and delivering training at major uk photographic trade events. He is an official photographer for
the Brit Awards and the Classic Brits.

Creative Workshop

The course will include talks on the craft of narration, and introductory workshops on gathering material, note-taking, voice and structure. Nick Danzigerwill project selected photo stories and explain his working method. Rory MacLeanwill underline the importance of writing from the heart, using honesty and personal experience to fill one’s creative work with feeling and excitement.

Above all, time will be spent in one-to-one discussions, helping to draw out individual skills, and – if desired – to complete a specific story which individuals may want to tell, in words and/or in images, during the workshop. Work will be critiqued and discussed in depth, skills and techniques enhanced, with each text or portfolio given special, personal attention.
