What an incredible year it has been! From Vancouver to San Francisco and London to Berlin, 2018 was another great year for the Visual Poet Experience. It has been a great pleasure to craft imagery with so many talented photographers, new and advanced. We achieved so much together and became friends for life.
The Visual Poet Experience Workshops are one the most sought after in the industry for a reason (you know that when teachers of photography sign up). These are true photographic experiences during which we study, discuss, debate but most importantly craft great imagery. These are not “let’s all hold hands” and chat-about-our-vacations social gatherings. Yes, we often become friends for life but what bonds us together is love of the craft and our dedication to it. We work hard to make sure every image we produce together during these events is world-class work.
For three intense days, we study one of the most coherent and built-from-scratch photography development program – Simplicity-In-Seeing. Regardless of our experience, we push our own seeing and creativity limits, not holding back anything, including critique and honest assessment. It’s no wonder that many of my students have become serious and widely respected members of photo communities around the world.
As many of you know, talk is cheap, and this is all about imagery! So let the images created by my students during the Visual Poet Experience Workshops all around the world speak for themselves.
I hope you will join me next year for one of the incredible Visual Poet Experiences and challenge me and yourself to become a truly great photographer. Make sure to reserve your spot early as I expect all the spots to sell out quickly.
See you soon!

So cool! I am making sure to attend at least one workshop this year and every year after! Maybe one year it will be your!
Olaf, I can’t wait for the day when I have the budget to fly into one of these cities to take one of your workshops.
Thank you for using my image from Berlin, Olaf. I am so flattered. I love that photo, as well, and have YOU to thank for giving me the courage to step out and look at the world a bit differently.
That first image by Dr. Adel Al Hunayan is really stunning.
Wow, great work! Hope we will meet soon!
I was thinking about Barcelona! 🙂
You are right…your students created some World class images in 2018 and I can’t wait to see what they show us in 2019.
Thank you David. Indeed, I have had a great pleasure and honour to work with so many incredibly talented photographers. Looking forward to making new friends in 2019.
I miss your landscape photography and previous artistic posts. I realize you have a business to run and wish you much luck with your workshop business. So long….
I know what you mean. I will have more time over the holidays to think about photography and seeing and I will try to write more. Appreciate your honest note. Thank you for sticking around 🙂
