Course Description

The emphasis of this workshop is on learning and practicing skills that help photographers document their own families and communities.


Workshop sessions are designed for practical use with personalized working critiques centering on the work created and instruction for making insightful, story-telling images in natural environments. This session examines the narrative, aesthetic, and emotional aspects of photography.

Daily Work

Each day is divided between classroom instruction, discussions, personal and group critiques, and fieldwork. Discussion includes ethics and responsibilities, light and composition, and equipment choices. Participants should be prepared to work in digital format. Enrollment is open to amateur and professional photographers.

“the diversity that the attendees would bring to the table from young under-graduates from the Academy of Art to a retiree traveling in from Ohio … Despite of our differences the group quickly gelled through a couple of exercises, chatting and our common love of photography.”
