TOKYO Photo Workshop (May 5-7, 2017)

Multi-award winning photographer Birgit Krippner and published photographer Harald Claessen are exited to announce that they will team up for an intensive 3 day Tokyo Photo workshop to be held from May 5 to 7, 2017. The aim of the workshop is for Birgit and Harald to share their unique views and experiences so that each participant is able to find their own distinctive voice for telling stories through their pictures. Participants will be on assignment for a significant portion of the course, with the emphasis on learning by doing and thereby getting maximum benefit out of their time with Harald and Birgit. The final evening of the workshop will provide participants with an opportunity to present their favourite images captured during the course.

Numbers are limited to 10 participants. To book your place on this workshop, send a private message to either Birgit or Harald and we will send you more information shortly.

Early Bird Special. The Standard Tuition Price of $1,700 is being discounted to $1,400 for bookings before November 31, 2017. Personal travel expenses, insurance, accommodation, meals and other expenses are not included.


TRANS-SIBERIAN-RAILWAY Photographic Experience
(May 8-28, 2017)

Following the TOKYO Photo Workshop from May 5 to 7, 2017, we have planned a unique Photographic experience. Multi-award winning photographer Birgit Krippner and published photographer Harald Claessen will travel from TOKYO by ferry to Vladivostok and take the Trans-Siberian Railway to Moscow. Regular multi-day stops along the line will give participants the possibility to see a magnificent part of Russia which is seldom traveled by foreigners - a magical journey through a place with many distinct cultures which have not been unduly compromised by globalisation. This experience is meant for adventurous photographers who wish to explore what is beyond. To express interest or to book a limited place on this journey, please send a private message to either Birgit or Harald.
