Online Course – Personality before portfolio

PERSONALITY BEFORE PORTFOLIO

ONLINE COURSE
WITH ERIK KESSELS

FROM OCTOBER 31ST, 2020

THE COURSE

Photographers are very good in the images they make but often lack the ability to communicate about them and themselves as artists. In this intense online 4-days class, Erik Kessels will push the participants to communicate more clearly about themselves and their work. Being the author or the promoter of your work are two completely different skills.

Over a period of several online meetings, Erik Kessels will prepare the participants for their possibilities and obstructions they will face in their professional career in the field of photography. Participants work on several small briefs to get more known to this facet of photography. On a more practical note, preparations for budgetsjob processes and decision making will pass by in the lessons.

TOPICS

  • Communication skills about yourself
  • Communication skills about your work
  • Contextual statement
  • Potential outcomes of projects
  • Professional skills: budgets, job processes, decision making

He also co-curated an exhibition called From Here on together with Martin Parr, Joachim Schmid, Clement Cheroux and Joan Fontuberta. In 2010 Kessels was awarded the Amsterdam Prize of the Arts, in 2016 nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. Until 2019 his mid-career retrospective was shown in Turin, Düsseldorf, Budapest and he exhibited recently in the SFMOMA.
