We love to answer your questions!
What kind of photographer will benefit from Traveling Light?
The Traveling Light is meant to be a place to connect with film photographers, both the ones that have been shooting for five years and those who are just starting with film. We believe the best ideas are born from connecting and exchanging thoughts with those who work in different fields, from portraiture to landscape, from editorial to weddings. Inspiration is everywhere and it comes in all shapes and forms!
The Traveling Light is a place meant to exchange knowledge, learn from others, see different types of photography and connect with minds that think alike.
Where should I fly to?
If you are not familiar with Catalonia region make sure to check out our Travel section, we have tried to cover all the concerns when it comes to getting there.
The closest airport is in Girona but only a few airlines reach it. Barcelona is the main airport and often the cheapest to fly to. We’ve tried to explain it all but if you still have questions reach us at firstname.lastname@example.org!
How many people is going to be attending?
Although the theater can fit up to 200 people, we only have 144 seats. It might seem like a lot but once you’re in Torroella de Montgrí it will feel like a big family. The town is known for its hospitality and the charming character of its people (of which there are no more than 11.000 inhabitants).
How many workshops can I take?
All the workshops will happen on Saturday 4th simultaneously, the reason being is that we believe getting a one hour workshop is not enough to learn from the experience of a photographer and really engage with them and get a personal experience, that’s why only one workshop can be booked per person (unless you decide to split it in half). You can check all the info for each workshop on our workshops page.
That being said, we are still waiting to see the response and are considering the possibility to offer workshops on the 5th day. If you are interested in taking more than one workshop please let us know at email@example.com
What are the speakers going to talk about?
We’ve carefully selected a wide range of photographers from different fields and very different visions that have choose film as their medium of expression. As this is our first time hosting an event like this we’ve tried to cover all the aspects of what it means to be a photographer in the XXI century. From creative portraiture, to how to build a successful business with photography, we hope we can all learn from each other and grow as photographers and as a community.
And have an awesome time by the coast of the Mediterranean of course!
Where are the conferences going to be held?
All conferences and presentations are going to be held inside Cinema Montgrí, a cinema from the 1920’s that is still standing and projecting movies weekly today. Thanks to the passion of the people in town, the town hall was able to buy it in the 80’s in order to preserve it and keep it as a symbol of the city.
And yes, they still have a 35mm projector that we are planning on using!
