    Next weekend we welcome back our friend Les. We've got two places left on this workshop to be held in my hometown of Portlaoise [Ireland]

    The workshop is one of Les's most popular workshops, called Ways Of Seeing.

    Heres the blurb ........

    This workshop is designed to help generate ideas and encourage you to think about your photography. Photography is essentially a rather lonely pursuit and at some point we all feel that we have been working in a vacuum and need to find a way out of it.

    In Ways of Seeing we will look to find that new direction by first, talking of Les’s own ever changing philosophy and then looking at and discussing your own current photographic endeavours. All participants will be involved in open discussions about all work and views, which tends to make for some interesting and stimulating results.

    An essential part of the workshop is the photographic assignment Les gives which, when completed, will be the subject of collective discussion and analysis. This is a two day workshop, and participants are encouraged to bring a selection of their work, either individual images or a series based on a theme. .

    Venue: Heritage Hotel, Portlaoise (Co Laois)
    Date: Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd Aug 2008
    Time: 10:00 to 17:00
    Cost: €185
    Availability: Just 2 places left

    I hope some APUGers can join us :D
