Join Photographers Oliver Du Tre and Marc Koegel for this unique workshop, offered for the 3rd time in Whitehorse, Yukon (Canada).
This one-of-a-kind workshop will teach you how to make stunning black and white images in the Yukon using a minimalist mindset for composition and creative camera techniques such as long-exposures.
The Yukon landscapes are very unique and this workshop will have you out shooting at various locations, from secluded lakes, majestic mountain ranges, to gold rush era towns and more!
Capture rare images that only this environment and landscape can deliver!
Time will be shared between presentations of both instructors, tips and theoretics, and hands-on field experience with ample one-on-one time. Let us guide you in creating your own powerful and meaningful black & white Yukon landscapes.
During this workshop you will address topics such as:
- How do you previsualize 'good' black and white photographs while out with your camera in the field
- Effective, minimalist minded, photographic composition and image design
- 'Styles' of black and white and how you can use them to give your images more impact
- Black and White Conversions and post production technique and workflow
- Black and White analogue shooting techniques and tips and tricks (for those interesting or wanting to shoot film)
Oli and Marc are known for their in-depth feedback sessions of participants images, so feedback will of course be an important element of this workshop - you'll be working one-on-one with Oli and Marc in the field, and in the classroom we'll take ample time to provide everyone with in-depth reviews of their work.
Together, Oliver and Marc will not only teach, but also inspire you as well!

"Bravo to Marc and Oliver for leading one of the best of the winter photography workshops. I have attended others in previous years and the 2016 workshop stands out as one of the best. Marc and Oliver again remained focused on the students... work with each of us on composition, technique and the probing inquiry as to the "why" of our photography."
"More important than leaving the course with only technique knowledge, I left the course with a better understanding of myself as a photographer."
"As the world of photography changes so does the market for photo workshops. I have attended enough of these to feel confident that I am a very good judge of what constitutes a poor vs. good vs. great workshop. Not one to settle for mediocrity I researched what I felt would be the best photo workshop covering long exposure and Minimalism. It didn’t take long for me to find Marc Keogel and Oliver Du Tre as they were offering a 3 day course in Calgary photographing the pristine prairies and the almost mystical scenery in those snowy fields.""
"For those of you who know Marc Keogel you know he has dedicated his life to his family and his unique business of owning and operating Vancouver Workshops in Vancouver, BC. Marc has many fine qualities but teaching photography is where he really shines. He has won many prestigious photo contests internationally and is well recognized as one of the best in his genre.""
"Oliver Du Tre is also a well known Black and White Minimalist photographer and his passion for his work is at another level. Oliver simply sees the world with a different set of eyes and he works extremely hard in the classroom and in the field to help each participant at any skill set. Oliver has put together a very clever and educational set of presentations which he uses to describe his approach to what is involved with making a great image."
"For those of us who have attended field workshops you are all too familiar with the leader bringing their camera into the field and being more concerned with their images than your own. This is most definitely not the case with Marc and Oliver as they constantly walked around to assist in composition, technique and just overall making sure everyone was comfortable. "
"I am proud to have made the decision to attend this intense course which has absolutely raised the bar on my photography. I eagerly look forward to continuing my relationship with Marc and Oliver and I most certainly will be attending more amazing workshops offered by Vancouver Workshops"
"Marc's skill and enthusiasm for teaching is only matched by his incredibly inspiring photographs. Thank you for a great workshop today!"
