The purpose of these workshops is to help you understand the aesthetic, emotional, and narrative aspects of photography as storytelling. Our focus is on refining your abilities to tell effective visual stories and help you discover your unique visual language through hands-on, practical exercises & personalized working critiques.

Our challenge is to slow down, reconnect with people and our environment, and make photographs that move beyond the stereotypes about your community and present your own visual narratives. expert option account types
