Matera, Italy
3 Day Workshop
Friday, May 13 – Sunday, May 15, 2016

The 2016 Matera Workshop is complete. You can email us if you’d like to be notified when registration for 2017 begins.



Awarded Unesco’s European Cultural Capital for 2019, Matera is a hidden treasure that will not remain “undiscovered” for much longer.  The unique cave architecture of the city, the deep dramatic landscape and virtually untouched cultural practices make it a fantastic location that never ceases to amaze us.  Even after four years of visits, there are still discoveries to be made and this is a great chance to see the rebirth of a city.  During the workshop we will visit with local craftsmen and have a private location model shoot to hone your environmental portraiture.
