Who should Attend?

This festival is for all levels of photographers who have a solid understanding of how the camera works, want to enhance their understanding of photography language in the field of wedding photography, and don’t mind staying up late.

I am just an amateur, can I attend the festival?

Yes. However, the seminars will not be about camera techniques, and gear, and will not discuss aperture, shutter, lenses or any of these kind of questions. The panelists will address some technical aspects of their work in depth at the individual workshops and masterclasses on days 4 & 5.

How do I know Silk Inspire is right for me?

If you are a wedding photographer, amateur or professional, you will learn tricks of better photography from seasoned specialists as they have journeyed from interests in street, portrait, documentary, and lifestyle photography towards wedding photography. These influences have enabled them to capture inimitable and award-winning wedding portraits. SILK INSPIRE seminars will go beyond online tutorials, lighting diagrams, DVDs and instructional books, to give you an in-depth tour of original photographic inspiration, that you won’t find anywhere else.

You have the chance to interact and see inside the minds of internationally renowned wedding photographers as they share invaluable insights and tips along with the working of their creative thought processes as artists.

What is the equimenet required for the workshop?

There’s no need to bring your camera as the seminar sessions are not aimed to give you ‘photo opportunities’ to enhance your portfolio. You will be able to ask questions and interact with the photographers during the seminars, so prep some questions. If you intend to take part in the portfolio reviews, you will need to show your images, and a laptop, or an iPad, is not a bad idea to have.

Do bring something to take notes on – a laptop, tablet, or just a good old-fashioned paper and pen. If you intend to participate in the workshops on day 4 & 5 you will need to confirm the required gear relevant for the workshop you wish to attend.
