Following on the success of the first PhotoFest Japan held last year in Akihabara, this year’s schedule has been expanded and further tailored to meet the needs of the large contingent of English-speaking photographers in Japan. The sessions will be led by three professional photographers who live in Japan, Alfie Goodrich, Sean Mooney , and Raul Suarez Figueroa.
According to Scott T. Hards, president of HobbyLink Japan (www.hlj.com)
This year’s workshops will include both indoor and outdoor sessions, hands on instruction, and photo walks covering the many picturesque areas of Yokohama. Studio lighting, portraiture, and sessions on digital darkroom and workflow techniques are also being offered for those who are looking to boost their expertise in these areas. A special introductory session covering the very basics of SLR cameras and photography will be offered for those just starting out.
Indoor sessions will be held at the Yokohama Country and Athletic Club (YC&AC) in Yokohama, just thirty minutes from central Tokyo by car or train. Outdoor sessions will be held in various locations in the Yokohama harbor area.
The fee for participating in Photofest Japan 2011 includes an opening reception, with cash bar, three full session days, and a photo contest - with winners revealed at our closing ceremony on Sunday.
