Where passion is the only requirement for photography and writing
Local photographer Jilly Bennett has been lucky enough to participate in a workshop in Monaco called "Telling Tales: The Art of Creating Stories in Images and Words" held by award-winning photojournalist, author and documentary filmmaker, Nick Danziger, and best-selling author, Rory MacLean.
The group was small and teaching was tailored to the needs of each participant. Jilly told us, "I thought their five-day course would be out of my league but I can tell you it was truly a life-changing experience for me and I loved every second of it. We each worked on a project that was close to our heart and presented it on the final day. We left with a clear direction for our future creative projects. Mine is well underway! Nick and Rory are brilliant teachers."
Stories can entrance, engage, even possess us. Every one of us has a story to tell: factual or fictional, cool documentary or sparkling flight of the imagination. But to become an accomplished story teller one needs time, a conducive environment, and sensitive guides to direct and refine individual talent. For the truly enthusiastic photographer or writer Nick and Rory will be giving two more workshops this year (2013) in Monaco – one in early September and one in early October.
