Berlin Workshop

Berlin, Germany, May 1 - 4, 2016

Berlin is always a great city to visit. Things are happening with rapid speed these days. It's still a very economical place to visit. The hotels, apartments, food and all is still cheap.

"I have read the previous version of your "Leica History" several times before. It is a very good read and will no doubt read it again - there is so much to take in!

I have always wanted to buy the Leica M3 but still have not got around to it ,some day. As always, great work Thorsten."

Music on the road

Berlin, Germany, May 4, 2016

We like music, and we like it loud and in good quality. We've used Jambox and headphines, in-ear headphones, and in the last year a Beoplay A2 portable bluetooth speaker.

This month we upgraded the sound with a Beoplay A1 for Joy Villa that can also be used on location photo shoots. And then a DALI Kubik Free active speaker that can make a lot of quality noise in the hotels and apartments that we stay in.

Paris Masterclass May 2016

Paris, France, May 6-10, 2016

They say "April in Paris" but May is the best month to experience the spring and nice temperatures. So we don't make the mistake (again) to go to Paris in April.

Three days in hiding in Italy

Viareggio, Italy, May 16-18, 2016

I can tell you now, but we actually pretended still to be in Cannes for another three days while we were giding in Viareggio. It happened to be half-way to Rome, and we needed a rest. Little tourist town with friendly people, good light and the ocean just outside.

We paid a short visit to Pisa before sunset to shoot the tower. More on that later.

Rome in Colors Masterclass, May 2016

Rome, Italy, May 18-22, 2016

Rome is the best place in Europe to be in May. So here we are. With a view to the Spanish Steps we have our workshop base and will concentrate mainly on colors this year.

 

New Old Camera, Milano

Milano, Italy, May 23, 2016

I've spent countless hours on the website of New Old Camera in Milano. It's all in Italian, so I've used Google translate to understand it.

So when we drove by Milano, we had to stop and visit. Fortunately the delight was mutural, and we did this short video when there. As the website is only in Italian, I was surprised to learn that the owner, Mr. Ryuichi Watanab (who is from Japan) speaks great English.

I will be back in Milano in May 2017 for the first Milano Workshop.

Wetzlar

Wetzlar, Germany, May 24-25, 2016

We spent another two resting days in Wetzlar, close to the Leica Mothership. Picking up a few things, playing with the re-inveted wheel (more on that later) and made sure Joy could work on her daily three hour fitness program!



Joy Villa trains three hours a day for a fitness competition. We found a hotel in Wetzlar with a gym she could use. Leica M9 with Leica 50mm APO-Summicron-M ASPH f/2.0.
