Add to Flipboard Magazine.

     

The Overgaard Photo Seminar & Advanced Workshop in Tokyo is limited to 8-10 participants and is a 3-day workshop.

 

Location will be in the Leica Gallery Ginza in central Tokyo.

Feel free to ask questions or book via e-mail thorsten@overgaard.dk.

It is a combination of the Overgaard Photo Seminar and the Overgaard Advanced Workshop tailored to bring you up to an advanced level on using your camera equipment, setting up a workflow on your computer, editing and presenting images, and shooting different assignments.

Where to stay?
There are many great hotels in Tokyo, and generally the rools are very compact,, thought through to accomodate guests in small spaces. But there are hotels with large rooms and more space, and they are in the expensive end. In the compact department I can recommend the REMM Hotel in Ginza that is just a two minute walk from the Leica Store Ginza. On the other side of the street is the spcious hotel Imperial Hotel Tokyo. For more adventure, the Granbell Hotel in Shibuya-ku is a great little design hotel, three minute walk from the famous and busy Shibuya crossing and the famous Hachik? Memorial Statue - all just a 15-20 minutes train ride away from Ginza witht he Ginza Line. Living there, you will get to see two very different worlds of Tokyo: Ginza and Shibuya-ku. In the same area is a more lofty hotel with great views and larger rooms, the Cerulean Tower Tokyo Hotel.

Cherry Blossom season in Japan 2021

The workshop is planned for you to be able to experience the cherry blossom season, which starts around March 14 in Tokyo and lasts for about two weeks. It can be seen in Ueno Park and other places, and we will make an outing to locations where we might get some "cherry blossom street photography" opportunities and bring some Japanese street life people into the unique aestetics.

You may want to expand your trip for more days than the workshop. There are many possibilities for trains out of Tokyo to remote locations with different stillness and very japanese scenery. For example Kamakura, a small town with temples, shrines, market street and a view to the famous Mount Fuji. And then of course there is Kyoto, which is a speed train away, and where the blossom season starts a few days later than in Tokyo (Kyoto blossom season is expected to be March 23 - April 6 in 2021). You could plan to go to Kyoto before or after the Workshop and spend a few days there, exploring the city and for example the Maruyama Park or the Philsopher’s Path (a canal path lined with hundreds of cherry trees).

What to bring

Camera(s), lenses and a computer with Lightroom installed for editing of photos. For the walkabout day we will select a minimum of equipment and wear comfortable walking shoes.

The second day you will need a computer with Lightroom (or Capture One) installed (30 day trial is available) to set up a workflow, get your screen calibrated and edit the photos we did on the walkabout the first day. The third day will be a combined day where we go shoot portrait, model and then finalize the workshop photos on the computers before we end off.

"Thank you again for the great time in Sydney. It was (and I say this quite seriously) a life changing experience. I'm a lot more confident to take and show my photos now. You should be proud that you have obviously brought knowledge and confidence to so many people. I will see you again some time in the future for a refresh"

Going to Shibuya-ku from Tokyo

The Shibuya-ku area is just 20 minutes from the center of Tokyo and is a busy and hip area with many narrow streets, but also many very quiet streets with small shops, cafes and residential living. Being on Tokyo and not going to Shibuya-ku ... well, you might regret. One way to do Tokyo is to stay in a hotel in Shibuya-ku and take the train into central Tokyo and explore the other areas of Tokyo from there.

Going to Kyoto from Tokyo

Kyoto can be reached by speed strain from Tokyo in 2 1/2 hours, but I would recommend staying there for a day or more (as the speed train leaves early, and price is about US$135, you don't want to do Kyoto in just a few hours). There is also a beautiful Leica Store and Gallery in Kyoto, located in an old tea house.

Kyoto is a small town, yet is has much to see of Japanese culture, nature, and a lot of shopping, from Goyard to simple pleasures such as Japanese notebooks and pens. The atmosphere reminds a bit of a ski resort in that there is the local life that goes on regardless, and then there is the tourists that infiltrates the city with eager eyes to see the tea housess, the parks, the shrines, and of course shopping and dining.

What to expect

You will meet like-minded people who want to improve their photography. 80%-100% will be Leica users, and if you are not, be prepared to become one. And if you are, be prepared to want more.

The seminar is very informal and hands-on. You will be able to ask all the questions you like.

"I've bought the new book - made a start reading it - it is really interesting.
I know it’s basic at the beginning but it isn't written in a patronizing way. I have been taking photographs for many years and have been lucky enough to be paid to take them for the last seven years; but it's always good to be taken back to the start"
P. S. (UK)

End result

You can expect to get a relaxed and simplified view on photography and realize that this is something you can perform well, enjoy and produce much more than you used to.

You will walk out from this seminar taller and more confident.

No matter their skill level and experience, what participants in a Thorsten Overgaard Workshop experience is that they photograph a lot more after the workshop.

A three-day photography workshop

 

Day 1: (10:00 AM - 5:00 PM)

We go out as a group on a day-long walkabout. It's casual and fun. You have an overall assignment of producing three images to present to the group from this day, but the style is relaxed and we simply take a seven-hour walk with coffee breaks, lunch and lots of talking. 

We will be looking for different light conditions and we’ll work with many different situations, light conditions, compositions and people during this day.

A great experience I won't soon forget. Now I have 11 new friends from round the world.
I'll make sure to let you know if I'm in your neck of the woods in the future …

Many thanks to Joy for dressing up and posing out in the hot sun for our photo shoot.
I'm sure it wasn't easy! Very much appreciated!

And of course many thanks to Thorsten for being so patient and working through the details of being an excellent Leica photographer … Searching out the light and introducing us to his efficient workflow processing procedure over the last four days.  

I will/am approaching my photography in a much different light now compared to my photography life prior to the course. Awesome! Talk soon".

Day 2: (10:00 AM- 5:00 PM)

We meet in the morning and start with workflow theory. How do you set up computers, hard drives, backup, color management, systems to archive and search for the images when you need them. There's lot to take in and understand this morning. After lunch we set up each computer and then import the photos we did on the walkabout day, and then we edit photos in Lightroom.

We select the best and do reviews as a group before we call it a day.

 

Keywords Day 2:

Lightroom editing, DAM/Digital Asset Management, backup, cloud services, software, workflow, job numbers, photo archive, keywords, sharing, prints, exhibitions and photo critique.

Day 3: (10:00 AM - 5:00 PM)

This is the final day after we have finished learning the theory, done some photography and reviewed some of our photographs. This day we are busy doing portraits, model shoot and refining our techniques – and then we have to hurry back and edit the images, filling any holes we would like to find out more about, and then wrapping before we end off at 5:00PM.

No homework. We are done when we are done.

 

Keywords Day 3:

Reflectors, portrait photography, model photography, white balance, light reflections, types of light, light temperature, external light meters, finding a location for portrait photography, final assignment. Getting it all right. Finishing every image and archiving. Publishing and sharing one's work.

Frequently Asked Questions about Thorsten Overgaard Photo Workshop and Masterclass

 

Do I need a Leica to paritipate
in the Overgaard Workshop?

No, you can use any camera brand. While Thorsten occasionally have been seen with a Nikon, Hasserlblad, Sony, Panasonic and Fujifilm cameras, his core belief is that Leica is the best lenses in the world, and the simplest cameras. Though the majority of participants tend to be Leica users (and any other tend to become Leica users after a workshop), it's a photo workshop where the focus is on taking pictures.

 

Where to stay

Hotel and travel is not included in the workshop fee. Usually participants choose the hotel type and brand which they prefer, or an AirBnb (many of the participants are frequent travelers). Some pick a place close to the workshop location, while others choose a very different location so as to experience another area of the city as well (and walk back and forth every day while experiencing interesting scenes and locations). The workshop is both eye-opening, but also draining on energy, so generally I recommend not to flush out on a luxury hotel that you won't have much time to enjoy.

I used to like AirBnb, and I have been very good at judging places from their photos, but I do find the standard has dropped. Often a hotel is better comfort and price unless you're a group who want to share an apartment or house.

 

How to get around

I prefer to learn the public transportation system in a new place. But not everywhere is it the way to get around. Other times I use Uber.com which is drivers you require via the Uber App on your phone. You don't have to speak the language or read the street names to get from A to B, and when you are done, the trip is charged to your credit card or PayPal. No need for discussing prices, cash or card, and no request for tipping. You can also pre-book an Uber to pick you up at a certain time, this way avoiding embarassing delays. Some cities offer rental bicycles, and that can be quite a fun and fast mean of transportaion!

 

How to book flights

I use kayak.com to research flights and either buy via the links on that website, or use it as research for who fly which routes and then go to their website and book. Or I use my travel agent, Caroline, located in Los Angeles to figure it all out because she can see connections and seats in her system that I cannot see.

I book flights based on flight times and prices. I don't go for the cheapest flights but the ones that have shorter flight times, less stops and the ones that allow me have a good sleep and get to the airport at a civilized time of the day. Often those flights are not more than a few dollars more expensive than the long flights with lots of stops. You just have to scroll down the page to notice them and see what is possible. People who don't travel a lot usually look for the cheapest flights, missing better flights for almost no extra cost, and thus ends up with extra stops and having to be in the airport before sunrise.

 

A photo workshop in my own city or far and away?

The workshops tend to be a little like a kindergarten. Professional people (who are usually very busy) get to explore their passion for photography exclusively in a place they dream of going to. Often, in the time outside of the workshop, participants explore restaurants, shops or museums they always wanted to visit, or meet up with old friends, or simply get work done. The workshop is in the sheduled daytime, and there is no social get-together in the evenings, unless someone arrange it. I feel the workshop is enough work for the day, so I let people have their own time, just as I get to have my own time.

On the other hand it is also very practical to do a workshop in your own city.  It's not as distraction-free because the office or spouse might call in the middle of the fun, a kid is ill and has to be picked up and things like that. The advantage is that you will learn to see the possibilities in your own city, because now you see, and you will never ever again hear yourself say, "there's nothing to photograph in my city".

Which type of Overgaard Workshop should I choose?

In truth, it doesn't really matter. Ask the 30% of the workshop students who return to do another workshop and you will know that even the program is similar, the workshop is always a different experience.

All my Workshops are tailored for anyone who had a camera or a Leica for three weeks or 30 years. "Everyone is a beginner" I say, becuase no matter how experienced you are, you probably got a new camera or lens recently, and the software for editing changes.People who 'know everything' seldom participate in workshops, so no matter how nre you may feel, we're all new to the day, the city and what can be done with the equiment today.

I treat everything as if nobody ever heard about it before. We go over the focusing, exposure and other issues that are always a concern. Nobody is left behind and everybody learns something new. If you don't want to learn new things, there's no reason to do a workshop.

 

Thorsten Overgaard is present in all workshops

When you do an Overgaard Workshop, Thorsten Overgaard is there. All. The. Time. There are no assistants taking over or workshop students sent out on assignments on their own to come back and get critiqued. We work together all the time. All Overgaard Workshops have lots of time for talking and questions, live demonstrations and how to get things to work better.

There is an emphasis on workflow and sharing in the 3-day workshop, whereas in the 2-day workshop we focus on photographing, and editing of your photos is done as homework. Workflow means getting your digital files under control and setting up a way to work on coputer that allows you to concentrate on taking photographs and making great results. But also workflow is about ensuring highest possible quality, and it is about preserving photographs. In my terminology it is also integrity becuase so many commercial interests lead you onto wrong paths that are time-consuming and costly -a and without your own workflow, you eventually loose pictures, quality.

All this, how to take over your pictures and make them sing with as little work as possible, is covered in the Lightroom Survival Kit and in the Capture One Survival Kit (which are identical, except for the software tool used). Professionals and novices will serve themselves well by getting one of these Survival Kits which have become the industry standard for workflow since they were first released in 2010 (and is updated in new versions whenever software, technology and cameras are updated). If you hate computers - or even if you love them - you will enjoy the breeze of sanity in your digital life, that the Survival Kit offers.

In the workshop you can ask anything about workflow, and if the Survival Kit and the Workshop is not enough to organize your thoughts and pictures, you can buy one-on-one time for consultingin person, via phone/email and video call. There is also "The Photoraphers Workflow Masterclass" where almost any question you could ever want to ask, is answered, illustrated and shown in videos.

     
  "Meeting you was one of the most memorable things in my life!"  
  - Ihn Lee, USA (board member Samsung)  

 

Expect to meet very competent people from all walks of life and from many different countries. What they have in common is that they want to be as professional in their passion for photography as they are with everything else they do in life. Age range is typically 30-65, and 30% are women. It's very chilled, casual,eye-opening, inspiring - and it will renew your enthusiasm for making photo. Expect to meet very competent people from all walks of life and from many different countries.

It's very chilled, casual,eye-opening, inspiring - and it will renew your enthusiasm for making photo.

 

Will I get along with the others in the workshop?

Yes you will. The participants in the workshop, you will find, are very different, yet very compatible. We all share a passion for photography, and often a passion for Leica. Not surprisingly, we have the same values and viewpoints on many things in life. You will find there is lots to talk about and much experience to share that isn't directly related to photography. 

The participants are usually professionals in their are of life who have an interest in photography; and want to be as competent in their passion as in their work. And above all, it's people who like simplicity. The age range is 30-70, which also tell you it's not going to be a backpack trekking university campus experience. Mostly you will meet CEO's, company owners, film directors, artists, designers, technology specialists, producers, and similar in the workshop. It's not a networking workshop, though connections are sometimes made, but more interestingly the conversations often offer a view into other areas of life on an expert level. Never a dull moment! 30% of the participants are women overall.

The general attitude is to be professional, in the sense of being good at photography, and very little in making a living from it. About 10% or so of the paritipants make a living from photography.

 

Thorsten Overgaard Leica Masterclass

 

We seek to make our own photos in the workshop

The workshop as a general rule shy away from tourist traps, busy locations and places "you have to see". The best photographs are usually made in quiet surroundings, narrow streets and in areas that tend to have cool cafes, restaurants and shops. The wider the streets, the more people, the more commercially arranged locations, the more energy is sucked from you, and the less you make your own viewpoint and photos.

Being inspired in an Overgaard Workshop

More than thousand workshop students have experienced that an Overgaard Wrokshop instill enthusiasm in any photographer and raise his or her skill level, self-confidence and production volume. There is no criticism, instructions, things you have to do in a certain way, and there is no tests in an Overgaard Workshop. It's an inspirational workshop performed by demonstartion of how to "Always Wear A Camera" with Thorsten Overgaard present at all times, and in a magical way, you wll find the workshop to be less about Thorsten Overgaard and more about you.

     
  "The secret lies entirely in the fact that education is as effective as it is pleasant, unhurried, casual, and in as ineffective as it is stressed to be important".  
  - LRH in the book "Creation of Human Ability" (page 202)  

 

A portrait photography secion is part of any Overgaard Workshop because it teaches the basics of light, colors, timing, and you learn to work decisive and fast! And ... apart from the benefit of getting a great portrait of yourself, you can now photography anybody, anywhere, anytime and make a great portarit in a few minutes.

Doing an Overgaard Workshop or Masterclass again

You bought a camera for a reason, and sometimes you forget, and you want to get back that enthusiasm for photography you once had. And you will. A great deal of those who have participated in an Overgaard Workshop or Overgaard Masterclass come back to do another workshop the same year or some years later. There is no "elevated" program for return students, because each workshop is a new and different experience. And each workshop is an individual session with Thorsten Overgaard and a new group of compatible, likeminded people.

The workshop if first and foremost indulgence in your passion for photography in such concentrated dozes as you have never experienced before! Return participants often have some certain goals or subjects they want to explore more, but mostly they just come back because it tend to give them a kick and take the individual participants from where they are now, to a new level.

  In the footsteeps of a Master of photography...

"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. 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 of 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 walk in the footsteps of Thorsten Overgaard during a workshop, and it really opened my eyes on how to have the proper look through my freshly bought Leica. It is the kind of experience that "sticks" with you later, for hours of photographic pleasure".

 
  - Roald Sieberath (Entrepreneur, investor and startup professor, Belgium)  

 

Overgaard #1 Workshop program:
Schedule of 2-day and 3-day workshops

Sometimes the Workshop or Masterclass is three days, some times two days. Both formats have proven to be very workable formats, refined over many years of doing this. I never listen to advisors who say, "nobody have time to spend three days in a workshop", because my experience say it is what is needed to 'get it', and it works. Likewise I don't do week-long workshops because it takes too much energy, and a week away from work and family becomes hard to schedule. Two and tree days es enought to 'get it', and few enough days to fit into another work trip or a trip with the family to the same location.

If you have done a workshop in the past and wonder where all the photo editing is, the answer is that some yars ago digital was new, and there was a greater need to address the confusion of editing and computers. In recent years I find that people. when asked, wante dto do more photography and less editing in the actual workshop. "How do I find my style" and "what to do with my photos" is more relevant, and I try to address this in the workshop as best as I can (the 3-day workshop offers one-on-one editing and review with me to help this purpose).

Change of plans, now what?

The workshop policy is pretty casual as to changes, because life happens. You can mostly always change your attendance to another workshop in the future without any cost and without any need to justify why it is necesary. Which other workshop you want to move to, you can decide later; we just need to know beforehand if you can't make it. As a general rule workshops are not refunded.

What People Say

 

     
 

User review of the Thorsten von Overgaard Workshops in Rome and Paris:

"Thank you for the Rome workshop.

The last days I spent with you in Rome I have done once before. So why do it again? Same type of workshop and with the same photographer.

Simply because I was so inspired by the first workshop two years ago, that I felt I would (and could) squeeze even more out of you a second time.

Of course some repetition was present on theory but two photo shootings are newer the same, and you always get new information there either wasn't presented the first time, or that you did not grasp at that time.

My overall goal taking part in the Rome Workshop was to focus much on the light, which I can transfer to future photo and television news stories that I produce.

And I got it!

The hands-on practice and advice from you benefits both experienced pro's like my self, and amateurs who wants to step up a level. So with my tired feet walking around hot Rome, I now will go back to work and let the experiences and inspiration go into my photography works.

You are newer to old, too experienced or (especially) too good to learn. Thank you for good company and learning experiences. Thank you to Princess Joy villa and Robin Isabella as well..!"


 
  - Morten Aalbek (Videographer of the year 2014, Denmark)  

 

     
 

Review of the Thorsten von Overgaard Workshop in Berlin:

"The Berlin Workshop is still resonating with me. It was truly a great experience, and was really nice to meet you and your family!"


 
  - T. S. (Canada)  
     
 

User review of the Thorsten von Overgaard Workshop in Seattle:

"I diligently edit and process my images after every shoot as taught in your workshop and am always up to date with my images.

I have had your New Inspiration Course for a couple of days and have viewed all videos. I recently submitted a few images to a gallery in Portland for an exhibit.

I will continue to refine and work on the things you have talked about."


 
  - T. S. (Canada)  

 

     
 

Thorsten von Overgaard Workshop Review Rome:

"I enjoyed myself very much in the Rome Workshop. I learned a lot, and only now the full experience is sinking in.

Thank you. I am trying make the New York Monochrome Masterclass.

All the best to Princess Joy Villa and Robin Isabella".


 
  - E. L. (Jerusalem)  
     
 

Thorsten Overgaard Workshop Review:

"Thorsten, I appreciate the genuine way in which you continue to communicate with your students and admire your success in creating a community of enthusiasts around you.

"I was such a beginner when I did your workshop that it has taken me quite a while to incorporate what you taught us into my photographic life.

" I remember you are not a fan of spending hours on a photo, and nor am I - indeed one of the benefits of the workshop was to show how one could spend more time about and about with the camera."

 
  - M. B. (France)  
     
 

Thorsten Overgaard Workshop Review:

"Thank you again for the great time in Sydney. It was (and I say this quite seriously) a life changing experience. I'm a lot more confident to take and show my photos now. You should be proud that you have obviously brought knowledge and confidence to so many people. I will see you again some time in the future for a refresh"

 
  - J. G. (Australia)  
     
 

Thorsten Overgaard Workshop Review:

"I was participant on your photo workshops in Malmö in 2011 and 2012. My abilities increased beyond imagination after that. Will you be offering a workshop only about portrait photography?"

  - N. S. (Thailand)  
     
 

Thorsten Overgaard Workshop Review:

"Dear Thorsten and Joy, I wish to thank you and Joy for a wonderful four days of photography. From the first day of theory to the last day of choosing our best, it was a wonderful experience that inspired me to take more pictures and share them with others.

I learned a great deal from your critical comments and also your showing how to improve the final picture through minor adjustments in Lightroom. May of my friends have a heavy hand with Lightroom but you showed us how to adjust the camera so that minimal post processing was necessary to have a good final product.

Joy was also such a pleasure to be with. She is such a professional in her chosen field of modeling, entertainment and production. Her sharing of this knowledge with us was a compliment to Thorsten's photographic knowledge. She was also very flexible and willing to share her poetry with us after coming out of the cold of Seoul's winter too.

I will always remember those four days as being very special because of both of you. When you come to Seoul again, I plan to be there!

Again thank you for a wonderful photo experience."

User review of the Thorsten von Overgaard Workshop:

"The Overgaard Photography Workshop is an investment that pays immediate dividends.

In four short days there was a marked swagger in my step. This may sound irrelevant to photography, but in my opinion it’s one of the unspoken tangibles that make professional photographers like Thorsten so damn good – their confidence is able to make them disappear in a sense, and put their subjects at ease.

The funny thing about this is that it wasn’t something discussed during the workshop, it was something that I learned from observing Thorsten work. The way he moved without hesitation, the manner in which he sized up his subject, and got the shot and moved on. Quick, clean, and confident! For me, that was the most valuable part of the workshop – spending four days at the elbow of a professional photographer!

What an experience!

I came away excited, eager, and confident that I could produce the kind of photographs I’ve always envied!

Thank you to my friend Thorsten! Some time in the future, somewhere in the world, our paths will cross again!"

Thorsten Overgaard Workshop Review:

"I was in a flat spot with my picture making, I was reading your blog which I follow with great interest. Your blog said 'wear your camera and get out and do something'.

Well after a bit of thought, I went out and put on an exhibition of 80 pictures in our local library exhibition room. This turned out to be very successful with photographic societies and others visit the exhibition.

Thank You for having inspired me!"

 
  - R. D. (UK)  

 

     
 

Thorsten von Overgaard Workshop Review from the London workshop:

"Towards the end of 2012 I purchased a Leica M9P camera and Leica 35mm lens; I did not know how much this little black box was about to shape all of 2013 for me.

In Jan 2013 I attended a four day workshop in London with Danish photographer Thorsten Overgaard. It was, not only, an incredibly informative few days but also tons of fun and I met some wonderful people. The encouragement I got from Thorsten and everyone else gave me an incredible boost to get 2013 started. In fact I loved the workshop so much I immediately enrolled on the Sept 13 session which turned out to be even better.

I found Thorsten's straight forward approach to both using the camera and towards editing extremely refreshing but it was the way he taught me how to look for light that, honestly, changed the way I view the world.

I see differently now and because of that I also think differently. I've started to compose and record music in a way that is much clearer and for the first time in my career true to how I want to hear it.
"
(Feel free to see images on my blog).

User review of the Thorsten von Overgaard Workshop in Sydney:

"First of all I would like to thank you for some very educational and inspirational days in Sydney. I feel that I’ve grown a lot as a photographer, not only through what you taught us, but also by just observing how you move and interact with subjects on the street. And your “All you need is love” approach to photography is the best advise I’ve ever received as a photographer.

I’m still aiming for my “less is more” approach to photography. If something doesn’t add to the story you’re trying to tell then try to crop it out (preferably in camera) or wait for the right moment when there are no distractions. I just had another look at your website and one of my favorite photos is of the Sikh reading a book shot with the 80mm Summilux-R. There must be hundreds of people in that photo but they all add to the story and therefore not a single one should be cropped. Very inspiring indeed!

Hope to see you again in the future, in Australia or somewhere else around the world. All the best."
