1 day with Julien Benhamou
Saturday 1 december 2018


Spend a day with Julien Benhamou to study, exchange, learn and realise your picture with an expert in dance picture, a creative talent in the art of directing and seizing the moving body. Plunge in the heart of the vision, techniques and artistic – almost philosophical – approach of this photographer famous for his work and the interaction between his subjects.

The goal of the masterclass is to observe and create while getting a feedback on the participants’ approach and picture. We are talking about a whole day of shooting with Julien Benhamou and two professional dancers, two academic dancers, ballet dancers or opera dancers, a woman and a man.Plunge into the creation of a body, movement, nude and especially artistic picture.


Each participant will be asked to prepare his influences, some pictures, paintings, sculptures, an iconographic research which will allow to get to the conception of a project. The Master will first check your (attention français: ses inspirations et ensuite vous serez amenes:chiosir l’un des 2) influences and criticize them. Second of all, you will be asked to follow the research for poses, setting up the lights, directing the models under the supervision and the advice of the Master before taking the lead directing, orchestrating and realising your own scenario, your ballet, your picture. You will take the time to shoot alone with the Master’s help, the dancers and a team on site to assist you. Finally, you will choose the right picture with the models and the Master.
