FIRST STEP 1 20.-26. september 2021
Morten Krogvold has arranged workshops in Vågå since 1989, and a total of more than 6,000 participants have completed one or more steps. Several of the well-known Norwegian photographers have started their careers here, but most are amateurs at different levels and ambition levels. Step 1 starts with a voluntary communal dinner 27.05 evening at. 19:00. The teaching starts on 28,05 at. 08.30 and contains a total of 35 hours of teaching / lectures. The teaching is based not only on photography, but on all other art forms such as literature, music, film and other visual arts. In addition to teaching, time has been set for own photography and continuous supervision. On Monday, the exhibition will be held with pictures taken by the participants during the workshop. This and the subsequent dinner are always a highlight for everyone! Step 1 is referred to as a travel journey and photographic knowledge is far from the most important, but it is the attitude of creating that is the focus this week. This is a course for everyone! We have a staff who assist with technical challenges, so don't let the lack of knowledge prevent you from enrolling.
Vågå municipality is surrounded by 5 national parks: Rondane, Dovrefjell, Jotunheimen, Reinheimen and Breheimen. Knut Hamsun was born here, Edvard Munch spent several summers here and Henrik Ibsen walked from Lillehammer and up the whole of Ottadalen to find material for Peer Gynt and Brand. Vågå is still a vibrant cultural village. SIGN UP HERE
