About the Event

I can hardly contain my excitement for this one! 

Mogens Trolle is a Danish prize-winning wildlife photographer, zoologist, mammal researcher and author and basically the oracle of primate photography and 2020's Wildlife Photographer of the Year in the Portraits section. We really could not be luckier to be drawing from his artestry and visual observations of these extraordinary animals.

"His primate portraits showcase micro-expressions that look like the kind we are used to seeing on humans. Through this, Mogens Trolle aims to show the primates as individuals with feelings, moods, empathy and personality and, ultimately, to create a sensation of connection."

We will be drawing from both moving image, to get a feel of the different species individual characteristics, before spending longer drawing from spectacular close up portrait photography. Golden Snub-nose, Proboscus, Mandril and Red-Shank Douc monkeys are just some in this colourful and characterful line-up. This truly is an unmissable session!! 

Please note - although these sessions are essentially UNGUIDED, our tutor Holly will be suggesting exercises with timed footage - these can be completely ignored or you can join in to give yourself a creative stretch!  If you'd rather not listen to any of the talking you can put Holly on mute as all of the poses have a timer clock and you can see the length of each filmed/still section.

What to bring: as these aren't tutored sessions, you can draw with whatever takes your fancy!  We do strongly suggest bringing LOTS OF PAPER - although there will most certainly be longer sections of footage/stills later on in the session, the warm up sections can be very quick and a LOT of them!  You'll want to be able to move quickly, it's a fun packed, fast paced activity - sadly we just can't make those animals stay still for too long!

PLEASE JOIN ONTO ZOOM TEN MINUTES BEFORE THE START OF THE EVENT TO GIVE TIME TO HAVE EVERYONE SETTLED BEFORE WE START, THANK YOU.
