Workshop with Sandra Jordan
22 October 11:00 - 17:00 Four Corners, London
Sat 22 October: Artist Led Workshop
Time: 11.00 - 17.00
£150 per person
This was a full-day workshop open to anyone over 18 with an interest in pursuing photography both personally and professionally. Participants were also invited to bring a small portfolio (max 15 images) for a review with LANG Director Laura Noble.
The workshop focused on improving visual literacy, using architecture and the surrounding streets as your playground. Participants explored the use of elements of design (line, pattern, form) to create stronger images linking them together to create a coherent body of work.
The day started with a short talk by Sandra about her work, after which the group went off site onto the streets searching for the unseen. Each participant had the opportunity to spend time working with Sandra on location, whom answered any questions they had. This was then followed by a viewing session and group discussion on their images.
This was a thoroughly enjoyable day, we were so impressed with everyone who took part; so here is a preview for you:
COLLECTING COURSE: At the gallery or your home/office
Due to popular demand, we offer a great 3 hour course to kickstart your collecting muscles:
‘Collecting For Beginners’ consists of three lectures and a workshop which is aimed at the collector who would like to begin or expand their collection with confidence. Photographer’s may also find this course invaluable to learn more about how the market works and to understand the mindset of the photography collector.
1. Collecting Photography
The basic knowledge you need to begin to collect photography and the importance of research. This includes key information on how to source, buy, conserve and build a collection.
2. Photobooks: some key works to look at, how to spot a future classic and the value that a great photobook library can have as a resource and as an investment.
3. How editions work – Why a photograph has value
Editioning is a key factor for all budding collectors and photographer’s keen to enter the market. The size of an edition can dramatically alter an artist’s sales and the position they hold within the art market. Understanding the reasoning behind limited editions and the classification of a print such as a vintage, modern or posthumous print has a great bearing upon its worth. By learning the way in which editions work you can purchase with confidence and photographers can avoid being bracketed at the lower end of the market.
Curating your collection
This is where you put what you have learned into practice and really get into the collectors mindset. A very useful and fun exercise for both photographers and new collectors alike.
Refreshments will be provided throughout and we also recommend that you bring a notebook with you.
£150 per person (non refundable). As places are very limited booking is essential and payment is required in advance.
