SAMUEL LINTARO HOPF
I've been out in the world taking photographs and shooting movies for longer than I can remember. As a trained communication designer, photojournalist and commercial filmmaker I have been working in the field of content creation for advertising agencies and companies that required me to be a professional problem solver. One skill that is the break it or make it factor is the ability to adapt to unforeseen situations. Street Photography is basically a chain of unforeseen events and demands high attention and quick reaction time. Like with all skills in life, the more you practise something the better you will become. What I want to offer you is not a shortcut, but a push into the right direction. My workshops focus on portfolio feedbacks, workflows and giving you practical exercises and tips that you can apply to your style of photography. Book me for a 1 on 1 workshop or see the list below of upcoming group workshops. I'm also doing consultation sessions via skype if you need help with personal goals, branding, freelancing, social media and anything else I can help you with.
No workshops planned in 2020! Only online sessions. Message me if you want a 1 on 1 session.
“This workshop not only helped me focus on how to more accurately express my creative vision through street photography, but it also provided an opportunity to meet some great street photographers and new friends in my city. I would 100% recommend this workshop — it was a fantastic experience.”
"Thank you so much to Samuel and Ulysses. It was a great experience. We spent time talking before shooting and it really helped me focus during our shooting time. Everyone was super helpful and nice. After we did our shooting project they did a great constructive criticism session with our photos. It helped me rethink how I'd normally shoot. I recommend their workshops to everyone interested in photography. Hope to take another one in the future!"
“The workshop helped me open up a new door of possibilities to use to my advantage when going out shoot the street. Highly recommend this workshop to anyone that wants to get serious with street photography”
"I learned a lot from Lintaro and Ulysses. I’m happy that some street photographers said my photos are getting better after the workshop. Thank you!"
"Thank you for the workshop. I had fun and learned a lot about photography."
"The Making Sense of Chaos workshop helped me understand that chaos in the street can be a good thing if you know what you are looking for.
In the workshop I was able to meet other photographers who share the same passion, and it is a great way of connecting to the photography community, where you learn from one another, and inspire one another. Samuel and Ulysses shared tips and advice that helped me build on the things I didn’t know I was capable of doing, they guided me and gave constructive criticism when they see something you can improve on. Both of them shared their objective insights and they never held back. They gave both practical and technical tips which made sense, as we tried to apply them to our workflow and shooting style.
I highly recommend joining their future workshops!"
Can you come to my city and do a workshop?
I do workshops world wide but in order to make any workshop happen overseas, I need to be able to cover the cost of traveling. That means there is always a minimum required amount of participants that need to sign up for the workshop to happen. If there is no workshop planned in your city, you can write me a mail (link below) and I will put you on a list of potential workshop locations and if enough people are interested I will inform you and create a workshop in your city.
How do I sign up? And what happens after that?
A workshop place is only guaranteed after payment. Before I send you the invoice you get the chance to fill out a form and tell me a little bit about you and what you want to get out of the workshop. You will then be given the option to book the workshop and I will send you the payment informations. After booking the workshop I will contact you personally and keep you updated about the workshop.
If I cancel, do I get a refund?
Yes, you get a full refund if you cancel the workshop three weeks before the workshop date. 50% refund one week before the workshop.
Skype Consultations can be canceled anytime with full refund.
Will I get a proper invoice?
Yes. I will send you an invoice via paypal. You can download a PDF version and save it for your books.
Can I bring a friend?
For the best learning experience I try to keep the group small. If I have enough space, you can bring a friend and your friend get's a 25% discount. Custom Workshops for just you and a friend is also possible. Just write me a mail.
Do I need a specific camera?
No. My workshops focus on developing a good eye and a sensibility for photography. Any camera can be used. However, it is recommended that you bring a camera that you feel comfortable with and has the option to be operated manually (to some extent).
Can I book you for anything?
Theoretically, yes. But I can only teach you the skills I learned myself. If I do not feel confident about a subject I will tell you. My main focus is on street photography, filmmaking, editing, marketing, branding & social media. For everything else, I better not waste your time and money :)
