Off The Coast: A Fishermen's Tale (For participants in other countries)

Off The Coast: A Fishermen's Tale (For participants in other countries)

Join Leica Akademie and photojournalist Mathias Heng in Trengganu, Malaysia, to document one of the oldest trade, fishing.

This workshop aims to allow participants to experience what it’s like to be a reportage photographer, where only the bare necessities are provided and comfort is a luxury.

Each participant will follow a fisherman out to sea (with safety gear) in the early hours to document their daily life on the sea, and all the way to the fish market where they sell their catch.

They will also learn how to work with limited space on the boat, as well as be pushed beyond their usual way of shooting and seeing to create a series of images that best depict the lives of these fishermen.

The cost of the workshop does not include return air tickets to Kuantan. Participants are required to purchase their own air tickets to Kuantan, Malaysia, where information will be provided as to the meet up point between the participants and Mathias.

Accommodation will be provided. Participants are expected to bring their own cameras and laptop for editing of images for the critique session.
