Redeye Academy aims to give you the best available training, development and support in contemporary photography.
These workshops are particularly suitable for enthusiasts, amateurs at every level, or anyone looking to improve the quality of their photography and develop their style and voice.
Renowned photographer Anders Petersen once said you must “Shoot from the gut, edit with the brain”. It’s fairly easy to find skills-based training in photography. It’s more difficult to develop your style and expressive voice, to make work that stands out from the crowd.
Our new series of evening and weekend workshops, developed by Redeye and Chromasia, combine the cutting-edge prowess of Chromasia with Redeye's emphasis on contemporary meaning and context. Redeye Academy is designed to nurture your skills and give you the confidence to capture more memorable images.
Who is it for?
The workshops are aimed at anyone, particularly beginners, looking to develop their photographic skills and creative self-expression.
The opening events of Redeye Academy are split into two core modules with four workshops in each. All workshops are a mix of creative development and technique. You can book on as many or few as you like; each workshop is standalone. They run from 1st March until 24th May 2017.
