Mikkel Vang is one of those rare photographers and seasoned world travellers who can shoot anything: interiors, food, lifestyle, people and landscapes. It is the soft, syrupy seductive light that plays through with his photos but one can sense the mood and emotion evoked by his photography. This rare opportunity is your time to learn from one of the best. Mikkel doesn't often have the time to teach others his techniques but during May 30 to June 3 he is traveling to Goteborg, Sweden to conduct a 3 day workshop.
Perhaps you already know about him as his work has appeared in famous shelter magazines such as Vogue Living, Elle Decoration, Harpers Bazaar or from his photographs in Gourmet, Travel and Leisure and for Donna Hay. His clients, to name a few, include H&M, Ikea, Joe Malone, Ralph Lauren and more.
Mikkel’s photographs have a stunning balance showing chic extravaganza with a livable ambiance – they are airy and welcoming – and for the first time with Ace Camps he is going to show you some of his methods and skills. He will share his thoughts for light selection, working with a stylist, how to create a specific mood to capture the effect required for advertising, how he works with natural light, storytelling and how to shoot still life and working with people.
You will be staying at Hotel Flora in Goteborg which is located close to shops and restaurants.
The workshop will have a main base for discussions and demos and we will head out for various location shoots. Part of the workshop will be held at the hotel and part will be in the field exploring different settings around the charming city of Goteborg.
You will be sent a list of supplies to bring upon registration.
Workshop is limited to 10 people. This workshop will fill quickly.
Fee: $2400.00 - airfare is not included
Deposit: $1400.00 - due when place in workshop is confirmed.
Final payment of $1000.00 is due February 15, 2013.
Mikkel was born in Denmark. He studied at The Danish School of Photography. He was enrolled in the five year program which provided him with the opportunity of studying cinematography as well as photography. Upon graduation he was awarded The Outstanding Achievement Award in Photography,by the Danish Queen. Mikkel had already absorbed the Scandinavian esthetic and decided to challenge himself and spend the next 5 years working in Australia. During this experience Mikkel was able to take his esthetic and combine it with the light that he found in Australia. Combining both points of view enabled him to develop a truly unique style of photography. Which today has made him one of the world most thought after photographers. He is today based out of New York but goes where ever the projects take him. As Mikkel's work grew in assurance his knowledge and interest in cinematography contributed another important dimension to his images. His creative use of "framing" seemed to be the missing link. Though at this point he found his work receiving acclaim from all over the world, the ability to frame an image, give it the magic of a cinematic moment, was what provided Mikkel with exactly the type of photography opportunities he had been searching for.
