Peter Adamik will hold a workshop on "classic photography", a 24-hour seminar in three days during Virtuoso & Belcanto Festival, in the second half of July.
Workshop participants will have the opportunity to photograph young musicians on stage and backstage during workshops, rehearsals and performances of solo recitals and ensemble music, under the supervision of Peter Adamik, who will coordinate the activities and ensure the feedback of the musicians. Opportunities for field testing in this area are very rare.
The working language will be English.
The cost of the workshop is € 600, excluding travel, accommodation and meals (assistance is available with the provisions for the latter). Peter Adamik was born in Berlin (west) in 1963, where he grew up, studied violin intensively, completed school and studied architecture, finishing with an intermediate diploma.
Since the time of school Peter has developed a passion for photography, turning this hobby into a profession. Peter Adamik's first professional commissions documented the music scene in West Berlin during the second half of the 1980s: Inga and Annette Humpe, Thomas Fehlmann, Rio Reiser, the "Neue Deutsche Welle" star Stephan Remmler, Rainbirds, Katharina Franck . His portrait photographs have been published as record covers and his musical photos in magazines such as Stern, Rolling Stone / Germany, Musikexpress and others, and also in the city magazines of Berlin, Zitty and TIP. He also portrayed the fashion icons of Berlin such as RIO, Claudia Skoda and Radical Chic, as well as artists, authors, actors and musicians.
uring the period when the Wall fell, he traveled to exotic places for Westerners at the time, such as Prague and Budapest, Krakow and Gdansk. His reportage took him to the brown coal mines of the Lausitz region, to Leipzig and Plauen, to those places where the revolution was actually taking place. Through the photographic reportage, he expanded the vision of readers of the Berliner Zeitung towards the East. His editorials for Max, Stern, Gala, Bunte, Cinema, Allegra, Prinz, Das Magazin, Econy, as well as travel reports for the Berliner Zeitung and GEO Saison, complete his portfolio. During the tenure of Sir Simon Rattle at the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Peter Adamik has accompanied many of his productions in Berlin and abroad. He worked during the training projects of the Berlin Philharmonic, including the film "Rhythm is it". Works for various productions followed with artists and international labels such as EMI, Sony Classical and Universal.
Today, with clients including the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Baltic Sea Philharmonic, the DSO / Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester in Berlin, the Berlin Radio Choir, the Berlin Staatskapelle and, last but not least, the intense work for the newly inaugurated Pierre Boulez Saal, Peter Adamik's work focuses mainly on music, portrait and reportage photography.
