Toronto Workshop June 5-7 2015




Here is what participants are saying about the workshops and mentoring services:


“When attending a workshop, there are certain things that will set it apart from others. First, competency of instruction and second, the power to inspire. John and Marc possess both of these qualities and more. The right mix of theoretical and practical activities makes for enjoyable and productive sessions. John and Marc take an artist’s vision and make it accessible. I thoroughly enjoyed the workshop and have become a better photographer and artist as a result. Thank you both.” Stan K.

“After explaining how he thinks of composition, John took us out on to the streets and showed us where to look to see compositions in the manner he describes. John’s passion about image-making extends to his thoughtful teaching method.  Absolutely superb!”. Marty C.

 “The two-day Fine Art Long Exposure Photography workshop in Toronto with Marc and John was amazing! I have learned so much in a short period of time. I have met amazing people and now have a huge amount of knowledge that I can apply in the future.  Marc and John are very passionate and knowledgeable in their craft. I cannot wait to attend the next one!” Jaclyn A.


“Thanks to you both for a great workshop and some terrific camaraderie. I gained a lot of confidence and insights as well as technical know how over the course of our two days together.”  Tim H.


“I first stumbled onto John Kosmopoulos from the Topaz Labs Blog article on his ‘Oramagraphy’ or Vision Drawings.  I was captivated by the lines, patterns and light so prominently displayed in his artwork.  When I went to his website, I discovered his ‘Archistracts and Euclidian Jazz’ series and was promptly blown away.  Conceptually coining the phrase ‘archistract’ as a photographic discipline (a conglomeration of the terms architecture and abstract ) his architectural abstract series is nothing short of amazing.  The gallery features BGW (Black Gray White) images distinctly and geometrically euclidian – essential angles & arcs, lines & light, parallels & polygons – alluring, brilliant…compelling.  In addition, John is willing to share his considerable knowledge with emerging photographers as colleague and mentor (by way of personal testimony, his technique and workflow tips have proven invaluable in the development of my own artistic vision).  As an engineer I applaud his minimalist form and perspective; as an artist I appreciate what he is saying – and his work speaks volumes.”  Frank V.

“I cannot speak highly enough of the weekend workshop in Long Exposure Architectural Photography that I took with John and Marc. They are both warm and approachable and humbly shared their wealth of knowledge with us over the weekend.  It was obvious how passionate they are about photography, and this makes for the best kind of teacher!  They spent a lot of time with each of us, committed to helping us apply the techniques we learned over the weekend.  I came away from the weekend feeling charged up and inspired about my own photography.  I look forward to their next workshop!”Leslie G.
“I recently participated in the Long Exposure photography workshop in Toronto and it was a terrific experience.  John and Marc are both dedicated to the success of their students and have teaching styles that complement each other. They provide a good balance of theoretical, practical and hands-on teaching — and both are eager to share their considerable talents, technical expertise and enthusiasm with participants. In a very full weekend, I learned the fundamentals of long exposure fine art photography, made some great images, and I’m now hooked!”Ron C.
