What are 37n campaign workshops ?
The concept of image campaign workshops came alive as a way we as photographers can fulfil a duty to contribute something back to the communities they photograph, instead of just walking away with the images and calling them their own. So we share those images to benefit the communities via the 37n Campaign as an integral part of the workshop objective.
What are the 37n campaign objectives ?
The objectives are to bring awareness to the Nat Festivals, and to support them by bringing funds into them. The imaging of the festival is the first and most important exercise in this process. It communicates the intrinsic nature of the festivals and translates it for others to understand through imagery.
What can you do to contribute with 37n ?
Join a festival workshop and shoot with 37n + Frankie Tun Tin and create images that fulfil the objective then share them via the campaign to maximise impactâ€™â€™. This effectively means you will give the campaign shared Â© rights to utilise the images you acquire on workshop the festival as a donation.
What are 37n plans for the future ?
To build an information portal for the festivals that serves as an information point for visitors who are interested in a journeying to the nat festivals themselves so they will have a better understanding of â€˜Nat Festival Cultureâ€™.
What should I do next ?
Please read the information contained here about the 37n Image Campaign, Nat Festivals and the Workshops we offer and request a place by emailing and ask us for a payment link back to firstname.lastname@example.org.
ABOUT FRANKIE TUN TIN :
Frankie has been taking photographs in Burma since he started toying with his dadâ€™s Rolleiflex since then he has won hundreds of competitions and the National Prize in Myanmar / Burma twice and been sponsored by Nikon.
He has 40 Years of photography experience under his belt and is a very expert B&W Printer and has relied on film as his chosen medium. However for the purposes of the initial workshops they are now going to be DSLR only until middle of next year.
Frankieâ€™s ability to Master often awkward light conditions in which he demonstrates an immense amount of skill ( we canâ€™t always choose the light we work in ) so importantly capturing carving his compositions out of that light waiting for the decisive moment.
He has developed a unique and innate skill to record daily life in Burma / Myanmar ad therefore it is important to learn what he has to teach us.
We challenge Frankie and in a live Occult Spirit Festival environment where hundreds of thousands of people attend over 5 days and invite you to very fast track experience into learning how to shoot in a very demanding situation where there are no second chances.
Unlike other workshops we donâ€™t carry you half way across the globe for a holiday this is most definately a Photo Workshop which requires some hard yet enjoyable work to come out with some inspiring imagery.
There are two festivals with 2 workshops back to back they are the two biggest spirit medium festivals in SE Asia.
These are the very first 10 Day Workshops held in Tung â€“ Byone Village and Amarapura, both in the extended Mandalay area which include Street shooting with Frankie Tun Tin before and after the Festival.
Centred around the Nat Spirit Festivals so its a good opportunity for those primarily who come to learn photography with us in this unique environment and pioneer the experience for othersâ€¦You need allow 14 days in total including transit times + portfolio reviews + digital projector presentations and assignments.
