Tim Richmond + Cheryl Newman

July 15th + 16th 2017


“Documentary Portrait” is the new two-day Workshop from Tim Richmond and Cheryl Newman, following the success of The Narrative Landscape and The Winter Landscape Workshops.

How does one define a “Documentary Portrait”? Is any person photographed in reality a document? Does reality matter in the documentary portrait?

We will examine and discuss the range of possibilities that the documentary portrait encompasses, discussing examples of other art photographers.
We will do field trips, and then return for further discussions and editing.

Based from rural Exmoor National Park, this two day Workshop is aimed at professionals and advanced amateurs. Numbers are strictly limited.

Price of Workshop is £495.00 including various meals and wine.

After studying cinematographers, Richmond arrived at his “colour palette” through the application of a cinematic device.
Printing for him is heartfelt, poetic process, guided by memory of the moment.
Using a wooden plate camera, Richmond employs techniques of “slow Photography”.
