6 October 2022 – Iñaki Hernandez-Lasa

A masterclass with Iñaki Hernandez-Lasa exploring his vision of architectural photography with its roots in family, environment and his home town of Bilbao. An evening of breath-taking images, instructive commentary and a real passion for his genre, where preparation is key. We were encouraged to consider a number of concepts as Iñaki shared his thought processes in’ how to see’ differently and making the image, often without the use of a tripod and no tilt shift lens! He explained a process of conceptualisation, visualisation, framing and then shooting, often in burst mode when people are part of his image. He also explained the differences between minimalism and abstraction. With 2 Fellowships to his name he shared his experience in preparing for a distinctions panel, from statement of intent to print and framing. Father Ted appeared at one point explain the concept of “near and far away.”

An excellent and engaging speaker with stunning images and thoughts applicable to all forms of photography. One we will not forget.
