I am considering to apply for BredaPhoto’s masterclass. However, I also have X going on. Would you advice to combine these? What were your experiences with this masterclass?
I got this question some weeks ago. For those who don’t know, BredaPhoto is a large bi-annual international photo festival. The organisation also organises a masterclass course for advanced amateurs within the larger BredaPhoto’s theme (now: TO INFINITY AND BEYOND). There’s two weeks left for the application deadline (before October 1st) and you might also be doubting whether or not to apply for BredaPhoto’s 2017-2018 masterclass.
To avoid you are getting overly busy, I’ve advised before to spent some time on your decision making. This time, I’d like to help you make this concrete decision of whether you should participate in BredaPhoto’s masterclass. These ideas can also be generalised to other photography courses you are doubting about.
Below you’ll find a decision chart with questions to ask and things to do, alongside some of my personal experiences with BredaPhoto’s 2015-2016 masterclass. Clicking on the image will open a downloadable (and zoomable) pdf version. (Note: some people reported issues seeing the pdf in their browser, saving it as a pdf and then re-opening resolved this. If you still have issues after that, let me know and I will send you the pdf).
Overall, I can say I had a great time in the previous BredaPhoto masterclass, so here you can find out whether you should apply this year.
