Super special 3 days concert photo masterclass with Thundermother including band shooting!
This worksop is ideal for those who would like to "immerse themselves" in touring life. Three days, three shows and a poster session with the artists.
We have planned the following process:
Meet at 4 p.m. on site. We talk about tips and tricks in concert photography and I answer all questions. We look at sample pictures together and I explain the different situations on stage.
From 8 p.m., the whole show can be photographed under my guidance - I can promise: a fireworks display of dynamism. Everyone has the opportunity to record from the front as well as from the stage.
The end is probably around 10 p.m.
We'll meet in the morning. By then, all photos should be read into your own computer and an initial review should be completed. Together we will sift through the photos and analyze the errors. The band will join them and give their first feedback here. A selection of the images are processed on site, where Guido and his assistant give Lightroom instructions and show how the images are processed at GKP.
Then the show is photographed again and the errors corrected, or you have the opportunity to concentrate on an exact motif.
In the morning they meet to view the picture. Later the band will join and there will be an exclusive shooting with the artists from Thundermother in the location for the participants.
The material is viewed and edited. Here, too, Guido will explain and show his type of editing.
Then there is another chance to photograph the show.
After the event, each participant can send in their best 20 shots. After the tour there is an extensive anonymous evaluation of all photos by me and the band. In this way, all participants not only get very direct feedback on their own work - they also see how they fare in a direct comparison "with the competition" (the other participants under the same conditions). The closing date for photos is November 30th.

It was so much fun and I learned a lot again a big thank you!
I am very impressed. Waiting for the PDF has been more than worth it! I'll be able to browse through it for weeks, even if I have a lot of good tips and ideas! And if you offer a workshop with your workflow after the shoot in the future, that would certainly be very exciting for me. But I can also imagine a video workshop on the subject. But after you do not suffer from boredom anyway that will probably remain a dream:
