Black & White Editing and Printing Workshop


Total cost: £495, including 50-page booklet, Fotospeed fine art papers, pigment links, use of Canon and Epsom printers, lunch and refreshments. GROUP OF 8.

Two-day, immersive workshop in Weybridge, Surrey, with Rachael Talibart and Adrian Beasley.

Working in black & white (B&W) can encourage creativity in a way that colour often doesn’t.  We feel more at ease pushing the boundaries and the viewer expects monochrome images to be “artistic”.

This workshop is focused on creating and printing compelling B&W images. Designed to be hands on, the workshop includes plenty of time for you to practise what you have learned using your own images.  Adrian and Rachael are enthusiastic and experienced B&W photographers and printers and, with a maximum group size of 8, you will receive their individual attention throughout the workshop.  With two professional pigment ink printers at your disposal and a wide range of art papers, you can experiment with different approaches to editing and printing.
