Masterclasses with Greg Gorman 2019


If you are a photo enthusiast, a dedicated amateur or an inquisitive professional, you can gain interesting insights and learn a lot from this well-known artist. 

Greg Gorman is one of the greatest US photographers of our time.
His sensational advertising campaigns and his work for the major magazines in the celebrity and movie segment have made him famous. Greg Gorman’s lectures and workshops are in great demand throughout the world and are very quickly booked.

Since 2012 the Atelier Jungwirth team has been organizing European workshops with Greg Gorman amidst scenic surroundings in cool locations.
In 2019 you will spend five days a Villa north of Milan. In a small group you can enter into an intense dialogue with Greg Gorman. He will assist you in indoor and outdoor shoots in this historic Villa. The honest criticism of the photos by the star photographer and the direct demonstration of his image optimization, which he gives daily based on the previous day’s work, are particularly instructive.

As regards content, in the workshops Greg Gorman deals with the areas which have made him famous – portrait photography and the nude. The participants learn the secrets of his lighting and can take photographs under his guidance. Selection of location, choice of model, analysis of model, treatment of light, natural or artificial light, colour, black and white, light and shade, perspectives, angles and positions, treatment of flawless bodies and also of normal, not quite so perfect bodies, picture analysis, optimization and image editing. Particularly exciting, above all, are the incidental conversations in which it is a matter of the many minor, unanswered questions – acquisition, marketing, customers, publishing houses, magazines, agencies, etc.

The dates

15th–19th September 2019 or 22th–26th September 2019, Villa Arconati near Milan, Italy

The workshops are conducted in English, the number of participants is limited.
