About the workshop

It became now a good tradition to organize summer master-classes of Gueorgui Pinkhassov in French chateaus. In 2012 we first went to Château d'Orion in south-western France, in 2013 - to Château Sissi in Normandy. And now, in 2014, we decided to repeat again the Château d'Orion, since this unique place with an unmatchable atmosphere ideally matches the intellectual relaxation and joint art experiments under the guidance of the Master

This journey traditionally combines travel experience, practical photography seminars, everyday photo shooting, and, of course, interesting conversations. Every day we will meet in the hall with a fireplace, equipped with a projector, to make a portfolio review and discussion of the photos, made by the participants of the master-class, as well as to listen to Gueorgui Pinkhassov's lectures – about photography, and the life itself (which is closely interlinked between each other)

The off-site master-class of Gueorgui Pinkhassov is traditionally conducted with the participation of Pavel Kosenko, his devout student and assistant in such events
