Message from Maurice & Karen

 
P1015105a.jpg
 

One of Maurice and Karen’s most enthusiastic passions is teaching. They have become widely recognized as an energetic and inspiring speakers, teachers and workshop leaders. Their photography teaching experiences includes courses, workshops, seminars and presentations at various organizations and institutions including Artquest Photographic Workshops (Peru, Alaska, Holland, New York, Canada, Colombia, Namibia), The Namaqualand Photographic Workshops (South Africa), Community College of New Brunswick, The Professional Photographers of Canada, Holland College and numerous Camera Clubs and Corporate Conferences throughout North America.

We will work hard to make this an experience you will want to do again. Our formula is simple, creating a photographic learning environment where compatible people and perhaps kindred spirits can relax, revitalize and share their love of the creative process, using the camera to deepen self-discovery and expression in an atmosphere of support, hospitality, comfort and friendship. We wish to create something special that makes it easy to be relaxed and feel at ease.

These workshops are for those who want to awaken or keep alive the explorer, the adventurer child within. It is for those who wish to experience authentic creative journey while having the comforts of the modern conveniences most of us are accustomed to. 

It is our belief that one of the greatest challenges of a teacher (in art as in life), is to help a student "find their personal way of conveying self-expression", so that they’re natural abilities, intuitive impulses and creative essence can manifest. Of course, if technical ability seems to hinder a particular avenue of expression, we have ample experience and mastery of technique to provide the necessary instruction.
