Singapore Masters 2-Day Workshop
with Guy Gowan, Kevin Wilson, Richard Dutkowski and Colin Buck
I'm pleased to announce the Singapore Masters Workshop for 2009 will be on 30 and 31 October. I'll be joined by three excellent speakers to provide a two day Workshop covering all the essential aspects of running a professional photography business in this digital age.

Guy is an accredited Adobe and Apple expert, the creator of a popular series of Photoshop tutorial DVDs which instead of merely selling preset Actions teach the user to create their own Actions and Droplets. He offers a website-based programme to keep photographers up to date with techniques covering the entire Adobe Creative Suite range of products and more.
Guy's talks on the MPA exhibition stand at Focus on Imaging 2009 stopped the traffic - the entire aisle space was taken up by an audience which extended well beyond the seating area. He will be unveiling some new learning methods.
He's also recently received his Fellowship of the MPA for his outstanding tuition over the past three years. This really is a programme not to be missed.
Kevin Wilson took everyone by surprise with the content of his latest DVD tutorial covering the approach he takes to using light on location. He is an expert in shaping existing light, using reflectors, only adding flash or tungsten light when it is absolutely necessary.
He has recently achieved his third Fellowship, adding an FBIPP in Wedding Photography to his FMPA and FBIPP successes in Portraiture. He will be staging a wedding shoot with a model, demonstrating his posing methods and approach to lighting. After the shoot, Guy Gowan will apply his Photoshop workflow expertise to process Kevin's shots.
Richard Dutkowski FMPA was the first Master Photographer of the Year. He is a highly creative portraitist, his pictures often drawing on Fine Art precedents. He will be presenting his work and discussing artistic values, the craft of photography, and his personal photographic journey.
Like many photographers, he knows that journey must also help provide income in retirement. The second part of his presentation will be Shooting for Your Pension, devoted to his landscape and pictorial work which is sold as stock photography and decor prints. With on-line sales in both fields opening up a worldwide market, he will show how creative photography can create an income stream for the future.
Friday October 30th and Saturday October 31st:
The Convention continues with two days of presentations, live shoots and demonstrations, culminating in the Singapore Master Photographer of the Year awards judging. This prestige regional competition, with a subsequent local exhibition to be shown in Singapore, is organised through the Singapore region of the MPA. Prints should be mounted 20 x 16 inch.
The cost of the Convention is £200 to MPA Members, £250 to non-members. A £50 deposit is required to book your place, with the balance due 14 days before the event.
