Vision Explorers Exclusive provides a highly individual fine art photography experience for those who want to bring their craft to the next level.

What to expect?

Personal in-the-field training, tailored on your own needs and wishes. The instructors are there for you all the time and can guide you through the whole process from developing your vision, to choosing the best angle and composition and finally setting up your shot. Instead of providing just generic information, we focus specifically on what you want to learn.

The number of participants for these events is limited to a maximum of six, guaranteeing at least one instructor per 2 participants. Joel, Sharon and Armand are all experts in their field and are world class instructors

The Vision Explorers Exclusive events will take place in spectacular locations that offer plenty of opportunities for capturing stunning images. 

Personalized post processing sessions using your own images. Instead of just giving a demo of certain processing techniques, we'll personally walk you through the process step by step, even using your own images if you wish. Doing this allows you to really internalize the skills that enable you to turn your photography into fine art.

Portfolio review and video chat before the workshop. To help you get the most out of the time we spend on location, we offer to do an individual portfolio review and video chat before the actual workshop. In addition we'll provide you with video tutorials, introducing you to fine art photography techniques. This way you can hit the ground running and use the time spent on location effectively.

Informal exchange of knowledge.  Formal classroom sessions are great, but in real life, valuable knowledge is often gained from chatting with an experienced photographer in person. During the time we spend together, you'll have more than enough opportunities to talk to us one-on-one, and ask us anything you want in an informal setting.

Individual post-workshop mentorship. We believe that learning doesn't stop after you return home from our workshops. That's why we offer you personal mentorship via one-on-one video calls, during three months after the event. This way you can take the time to  put into practice what you have learned, and still have full access to us.

The first edition of Vision Explorers Exclusive will take place in New York City, on November 7 - 10, 2013. We will spend 4 photography-intensive days in NYC, visiting all the amazing locations the city has to offer. Whether you want to learn fine art B&W architectural photography and long exposure photography from Joel and Sharon, or develop your cinematography skills with Armand, you will enjoy intensive mentoring in this intimate setting. From the iconic Empire State and Chrysler Buildings to the Brooklyn Bridge, to Downtown, to the amazing architectural masterpieces of Frank Ghery, you will experience NYC with your instructors, side by side. Last but not least, this setting will allow us to get to know each other over great meals, and leave NYC as friends.

A unique aspect of this workshop is that Joel will teach his highly regarded B&W masterclass in person during the four days in NYC, supported by online tutorials and personal feedback via one-on-one video chats and email. This allows the student the time to work on assignments. Under our exclusive 3 month mentoring program, artistic growth is guaranteed. This combination of on-location workshop and personal mentorship will only be available to participants of the Vision Explorers Exclusive events and is something you won't find anywhere else.
