There will be more details coming, which will be posted both here and on the main Workshops site, but here’s the bullet:
First up is Spain. That’s the builders’ exterior photo of our teaching venue at the top of this post. This workshop will take place on Monday, January 11th Wednesday, January 13th, 2010, near Màlaga.
THE RAIN IN SPAIN STAYS MAINLY SOMEWHERE FAR FROM MALAGA.
The venue is an utterly spectacular villa (1300+ square metres) in the La Zagaleta development, which is outside Marbella, which is outside Màlaga, which is on the South Coast of Spain. We’ll have the run of the place from 9:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m., during which time I’ll be talking, demonstrating, and coaching the EIGHT participants. Eight’s the limit, so get registered soon if you want to take part in this. I think it’s worth it just for the chance to shoot a world-class house. This place is in the final days of construction as I write this, but I’ve seen the scouting photos and it’s pretty cool. We’re talking big rooms, big views, infinity pool, the works.
TIMEY KANGAROO DOWN, SPORT
Next, it’ll be Brisbane, Australia. This is scheduled for Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010. My first order of business there will be to educate the locals in how to speak with a proper Aussie accent. Following that, I’ll be teaching in another rather spectacular 4-bedroom bit of new construction on Bribie Island, about an hour or so from Brisbane International. This place (as with the Spain venue) is large, shiny, and very nicely staged. And as with the Spanish workshop, it’s an all-day affair, consisting of (short) lectures, demonstrations, and hands-on practice with coaching from me. I can guarantee you that you’ll be very, very tired by the end of the day.
But hopefully not so tired that you can’t join me for dinner and a few beers afterwards!
I can only accommodate eight students at each location. More, and Scott gets run ragged. So if you even think you’re interested, get serious about it soon – email me if you’ve got questions, study the workshop registration page, make your plans, because I’m expecting these to sell out quickly. There is the potential to add a second day in each location, if demand is really high.
HOW DO I REGISTER?
You register via PayPal – I expect a registration link to be live on the Workshop Website within 24 hours. Meantime, you can email me and I’ll send you instructions on how to secure your spot. Once the website is updated, it’ll be ground zero for details about both locations, as well as the US locations I hope to be announcing soon (Phoenix tops the list, fyi). But of course there will be plenty of information here, too.
The fee for the Màlaga workshop is $330 EU. Brisbane will be something similar, I’ll have an exact number by tomorrow, so stay tuned. There are plenty of hotels and restaurants near both locations, and again, that information will be prominently displayed here and on the workshop website.
I think both of these are going to be a LOT of fun, a fantastic learning opportunity, and not least a great chance to shoot a world-class house and gain some killer portfolio material.
See you there!
