Cesura Educational promotes workshops and masterclasses with internationally-famed photographers on a ongoing timetable.  Our first goal is to keep this formation fresh through a revolving teaching personnel, with the aim to propose students a range of always new ideas and working tools.

Cesura Educational offers two different learning plans:

1. WORKSHOP, covering 2-3 days to a week

2. MASTERCLASS, one week of tutored-work followed to a six-month span of individual production of a project before, then one further of work with the teacher for a conclusive week of final editing. 

All aspects of being a photographer are examined through an intimate environment during a week-end or a week period. The planned course are all high-intensity based, and while this level depends on the mindset of the teacher, all of these constitutes a highly energetic gateway to start developing everybody's own work and creative settling: that is the production of a portfolio, the ability to edit, the development of relationships with customers or galleries, as well as the skills to relate to oneself while taking pictures through the most diverse settings.

Alex Majoli & Daria Birang Masterclass
Alex Majoli & Daria Birang Masterclass
From 16th to 22nd March 2015

The masterclass by Alex Majoli and Daria Birang is a photography course to develop a personal photo project from the very beginning with the aim to finalizing it for publication, exhibition or into any form desired by the student or suitable for the project.
This matersclass is about resetting , rethinking, reengaging with photography. Content and artistic autonomy are at the base of Alex Majoli’s teachings. The importance of the individual as a photographer, his history, experiences and background are all related to the way the photographer will take a picture.
The course starts with very personal conversations between Majoli and the student which will be the beginning of an intensive six month to a year project. Daria will be hands on in the editing part of the project and will help pursue a storyline combining certain photos and sequencing. Together they will lead you through the whole process ending with another week to finalize the project.
