As part of the IF/Summer Academy, ALPA and IF/SummerAcademy collaborate to offer the first ALPA Class for photographers. Within the daily workshop program of the SummerAcademy ALPA customers have the opportunity to participate in a daily morning ALPA Class. Lecturers and students will less focus on the classic lecture format but on interchange and photography. There is sufficient time and space to work on your own – assisted by experienced lecturers.
Subject of ALPA Class is internal and external architectural photography expanded with still life photography. The workshop is in English.
Over the course of the SummerAcademy you learn half a day (Friday thru Saturday) about ALPA equipment and photographing with ALPA cameras. Then you are free to choose other workshops. There will be 2 other workshops in English, Motocross Action with John McDermott and Reportage with Carey Wagner.
Constant feedback is key to an ALPA Class, therefore we have limited the number of participants to eight persons. And we make sure they are in highly professional hands. Principal lecturer will be international photographer Dan Lindberg, who has been working with the ALPA system for many years. Based in Spain, he is dedicated to art and architectural photography. Dan will first show his personal approach to photography and then assist the participants to find their own. Technical advisor and representative of ALPA is Ralph Rosenbauer.
In ALPA class, you will work with your own equipment with the assistance of experts and experienced ALPA-Photographers. Besides that, we can arrange ALPA cameras and objectives for loan, cost included in the package. There are also complete kits for newcomers of technical photography. Please just make sure you inform us as soon as possible, if you need any of our equipment. A professional lighting system will be available on site for every participant.
The family wine estate Alois Lageder in Margreid matches all of these aspects. It is located at the end of the „Weinstrasse“ in South Tyrol, about 25 Minutes outside the city of Bolzano. Some of the buildings date back to the 13th century. They have been gently renovated, which lends them a unique charm. Our ALPA class is allowed to use the palazzo, the patio and the granary. They are perfect subjects for photographic work. At the same time the wine estate does not only stand for medieval and rural architecture, but also for high quality wine making. Modern industry buildings are a strong contrast to the historic part of the estate and also a great photo opportunity. The landscape is just stunning and provides us with wine and tasty food.
