What is PopUP GPP?
As many of you know, Gulf Photo Plus is an annual photography workshop held in Dubai around Feb or March. People from all over the world gather in one of the most ultra modern cities in the world to learn photography, network, and have an overall great time with some very cool people. Some of the past instructors to teach at GPP are familiar names to anyone in the photography world including Peter Hurley, Mike Kelley, Joel Grimes, Lindsay Adler, David Burnett, and RC Concepcion to name just a few.
However, traveling to Dubai for a week's worth of photography classes is a big commitment for many of us in the western hemisphere. That's where PopUP GPP comes in. Each year the organizers of Gulf Photo Plus, Mo and Hala, host one break away event somewhere in the world. Two years ago it was hosted in London, last year it was in Singapore, and this year they are coming to Seattle, Washington. The four keynote instructors mentioned above will be teaching half day classes focused on lighting, business, and creating your own photography footprint. Here is what each instructor will be teaching according to GPP:
Joe and Greg will talk and demo lighting and Zack will be taking us through the nuances of the business aspects of photography and last but not least, David Hobby will really help you understand meaning and purpose behind your photography interest and/or career.
From technique to style and business advice, you will definitely benefit from the wisdom and experience of guys who between them have shaped a lot of the trends and influenced photography.
