SUPPORTING EXCELLENCE IN PHOTOGRAPHY
BE INSPIRED - 3 DAY WORKSHOP
The Be Inspired photography workshops are conducted by well renowned and award winning Photographer Mauricio Dela Rocha G. It is a series of workshops run throughout the year for current photographers who want to maximise their potential. You will not only gain insightful and practical knowledge but draw inspiration from current and real-world experiences from one of South Americas best Photographers to make your learning experience thought-provoking, engaging and stimulating - not just a presentation with text book material. Participants are encouraged to immerse themselves throughout the process and delve into the mindset of becoming a professional photographer.
Excelling students will also have the opportunity to gain employment as a Professional Photographer under the guidance of Mauricio in one of Sydney's fastest growing Studios - Instapose Imagery Pty Ltd.
ABOUT MAURICIO DELA ROCHA G
Mauricio's journey as a fine art Photographer and Videographer began in 2004 in Argentina under the tutelage of Escuela de Fotografía Creativa Andy Goldstein. After receiving multiple industry awards in Argentina, Mauricio was invited to Australia in 2008 to showcase his work and opened his first Art Gallery in Manly to inspire and support creativity within the community. His Double Exposure Stories, Camera Obscura Projects and Night Ghost Stories have been recognised and portrayed in many national exhibitions like the CONFLUENCIAS - Art Intervention, NEXUS - Reflections and Interpretations and the MANLY ART FESTIVAL.
Aside from his work at his Fine Art Gallery, Mauricio now heads the Photography and Videography Programs at the Instapose Imagery Studio and with this collaboration founded the Be Inspired Workshops.
Letter to Participants
"I've been fortunate enough to have worked in the heart of the photography industry for many years and saw an industry not only in great turbulence but also one that was becoming more and more popular. The internet and technology that exists are opening this art to the public, photos are being taken everywhere these days and there is more interest in photography than ever before.
This said, photography is such a subjective field. When learning about photography, either trying to become a Professional, or shooting for your own personal passion it is difficult to discern what is good and what is not. However this "grey" area may be, there are still photographers out there who lead the way and have become successful in this profession. They have stood the test of time and have evolved through the years by adapting to the many drastic changes within this industry. More importantly, they have inspired people and other photographers.
This is what the Be Inspired Workshops are all about - Inspiration, Motivation and Creativity
This workshop is for inspiration, but you need to be like a sponge and soak it all in - This is not an academic course nor is it the moment for taking brilliant photos - This is the moment to challenge yourself, to experiment to be proactive, but most of all be bold and fearless.
There are plenty of photography workshops around that will help you take brilliant photos. What makes us stand out is that we emphasise and place great importance in creating an intimate experience to ensure quality in the personal relationships, which is why we only offer 8 places in one workshop. Also, we wanted to give the participants an opportunity to not only learn but to join one of Sydney's fastest growing studios and have the chance to showcase their work in our gallery."
