Hello

Join the first ever Overgaard photo workshop in Dallas TX (October 29-31) and enjoy a special introductory price of only $1,500.00. This workshop is not on the official schedule, so simply mail me back by replying to this email for reservation and signup, or sign up right now using this payment link (PayPal, Visa, MasterCard and American Express accepted).

These invitation-only "for the first time in this city" sell out fast. The recent announced Atlanta workshop sold out in a few days (so I'll make this mail short so you can get on with it). I think that it's a good time to get out and about with your camera, and in Dallas we will mainly travel with our cameras through quiet neighborhoods with architecture and greens, beautiful parks and small cozy streets to inhale the Texas living and photograph the atmosphere.

Dallas TX- This is where our three-day Overgaard photo workshop takes place for a small group of Leica photographers and digital photographers of all ages.

 

A photograph is the world seen through the artist's soul

There is something only you have, and I am on a worldwide trail to help you find it. If Dallas works for you, there is where it happens. 

What you have, and only you, is you. Through the Overgaard workshop we explore and dig out the uniqueness of being you, and the result will be good art that could only be made by you. As simple as that. You will get a living proof that even the others in the workshop have many things in common with you, none of them are like you, and none of them are the same.

The Overgaard Workshop is a mix of street walking, cozy moments hanging out on street corners, having a coffee break and talk about life, enjoying quiet places in the city, indoor photo editing, critique, portrait photography on location – and the always unexpected that occurs when you meet life and people in a city.

The Overgaard Workshop Experience

"At first I didn't realize what I had learned. The editing, and especially the portrait shooting, brought me a lot. In addition, the workshop gave me something new. I dared to submit a picture to a street art contest! The picture has now been chosen for an exhibition along with fourteen others. Thank you for your influence and the inspiration of your books."
M. K. (Berlin 2022 class)

 

In the footsteps of a Master of photography ...
"A common mistake when you fall in love with photography, is to think that buying gear will bring you talent. Not so. When you're serious about photography, you need to devote quite a few hours, a couple days, to learn the craft by observing from someone who has honed his own craft for decades, like Thorsten Overgaard.
I had the chance to be in the footsteps of Thorsten, during a street photography workshop he organized in Paris, and it really opened my eyes on how to have the proper look through my freshly bought (used) Leica. 
It is the kind of experience that "sticks" with you later, for hours of photographic pleasure. Not only did I learn about the technique but I was able to pick up almost on a philosophical level, an appreciation of life & light that is part and parcel of the craft of true Masters."

R. S. (Paris 2021 class)

 

The Books and Classses of Overgaard

"I’ve been to several workshops and walk-alongs with Thorsten. I've read all his photography books. My photography has improved to new levels. Thorsten has inspired me to carry my camera around and take pictures. The joy I get doing photography has increased substantially thanks to his workshops and books."
D. J. (Chicago 2022 class)

 

Back into the photographic excitement

"My cinematography work has been all digital for over 20 years, and I was never able to feel excited about any digital still camera. After I watched your videos and read your articles, I realized that this camera has the potential to give me that beautiful feeling. This is going to open up a new chapter in my photographic journey, and I wanted to thank you for putting your content out there and educating people and getting them excited."
K.M. (Cinematographer, Hamburg)

 
     

 

One of the exciting things in an Overgaard Workshop (that you didn't expect) is the portrait photography part. A few hours where you get your personal crash course in working close with a living person in front of the camera, and how to master the technical perfection of a photo using reflector, light meter, color meter, and how to time the exact right moment to capture the soul of another person. You might also get to experience being in front of the camera, if you like.
