Master Classes Northern Lights

The next step in your photographic career - powered by Noorderlicht

Curator Marc Prüst and Lars Boering (Lux Photo Gallery) continue their cooperation with Noorderlicht and launch the fifth edition of their masterclass for professional photojournalists and social documentary photographers. It aims at developing their skills as photographers and as marketers of their own work, in a changing economic environment
The master class sets itself apart by its long-term and in-depth approach to educating working photographers.

To apply for the Northern Lights Master Class 2014-2015, please use the registration form. Besides your contact details, we would like to see a small portfolio of 2 or 3 of your best stories. Deadline: 15 June 2014.


For the master class a group of maximum 12 participants meets 3 times for 3 days during a period of 9 months at the offices of the Noorderlicht Foundation in the beautiful city of Groningen in the Netherlands. Under the guidance of curator Marc Prüst and Lars Boering of Lux Photo Gallery they will be pushed to make the next step in their careers.

With the aim to give true insight as to how to move their career forward, for each session the group of participants is joined by 2 masters who will talk about their specialty in the photographic business. The masters are not photographers, but all play leading roles in their profession within the business: from directors of photography of magazines, to photographic critics, and from collection consultants to art directors.
