digital back Feb 27, 2012

COPENHAGEN, February 27, 2012 — The 2012 Phase One Digital Artist Series (PODAS) international photography workshops are now open for enrollment. Each of the ten all-inclusive photo excursions is limited to less than 25 participants. All feature a hands-on learning environment amidst breathtaking surroundings, and for the first time, French and German speaking workshops have been arranged.


Unique to PODAS, each participant will be loaned a 60-megapixel IQ160 camera system for the workshop duration. The system comprises a Phase One 645DF camera body and IQ160 back. A full set of Phase One lenses will also be available. Participants will receive a copy of Capture One Pro software, as well as several final 30×40 prints of their work and a camera bag. Ambitious shooting excursions will be complemented by seminars on topics ranging from visualization to composition, capture, workflow and presentation.

The presence of multiple instructors, plus Phase One support staff, offer a very supportive, low student-to-instructor ratio. PODAS instructors include pro photographers and creative luminaries such as: Michael Reichmann, Daniel Bergmann, Peter Eastway, Steve Gosling, Peter Cox, Marcus Schwier, Phase One CTO and vice president Claus Molgaard and many more.

David Duffin of Canada who attended PODAS Australia said, “I want to thank you for a great workshop. Arguably the most enjoyable week I’ve ever had.”
