Art Camp 2013
On 9th – 11th in Ventspils took place annual international creative camp for photographers Art Camp 2013. The event is very remarkable and interesting – about 300 photographers gathered out there. We have visited festival for the fourth time in a row (didn’t miss a time since first Art Camp 2010). Traditionally Art Camp took place on Baltic seacoast in Ventspils. Part of the event was organized in Piejūras kempings this year, what is very convenient and gave atmosphere of comfort.
Lections were organized in the house of theater Jūras vārti – great place for such an event. Every Art Camp there were lectors, who impressed at most, this time favorits – Gunars Binde (Latvia), Olersandr Lyapin (Ukraine), Martin Vrabko (Slovakia) and Svetlana Petrova (Russia). There was Igor Sakharov (Russia) as well (created absolute furor last year), but he was unavailable for the most of the participants because his lections were organized for very small amount of people. I know photographers in person, who didn’t visit Art Camp 2013 because of this. Anyway, this year Igor Sakharov’s wife (Svetlana Petrova) got laurels of glory. Actually, there were not many people from previous Art Camp, mostly came new participants. Was expected two times more people than arrived this year. There was enough time for informal dialogues with photography masters between lections and master classes. Lectors were open for chats and answered the questions we asked.
At the same time with Art Camp 2013 took place first Fusion Bodypainting Festival.
While Art Camp were represented drones for air shooting. Sony Latvian branch has organized photo contest with main prize Sony NEX-6 camera with two lenses. By the way every contest participant got small prizes as well. It was not the only contest while Art Camp – I’ve got as one of the winners flash light soft box for cocktail preparation shooting (every participant got coctail for free), curated by Spot studios.
Here are some photos from Art Camp 2013
