Are you seeking insights and inspiration to express yourself in new ways?

These workshops will:

  • Take you beyond representational image-making. 
  • Introduce new modalities of photographic expression.
  • Enhance your use of visual design.
  • Use image sequences for visual story-telling and effective communication.
  • Encourage you to see yourself as an artist and photography as an art-form.

  • Daily peer review sessions with all participants to evaluate images artistically and technically.

Participants must:

  1. have a working knowledge of shutter speed, aperture, ISO, depth of field and the relationship between each. 
  2. have reasonable competency with their computer and photo editing software so they can select, organize and prepare photos for presentation.

I throughly enjoyed this week. Not only have I learned from Chris and Dennis but also from the creativity of all the participants. The pace was good, feedback fantastic and venue spectacular. Wink, 2018

What to Bring

After registration, a detailed list will be provided. The basics include:

  • a laptop computer for daily processing of images. Computers and software should be up to date and reliable.
  • to take full advantage of the photographic techniques taught, a camera with multiple exposure capability, including dark and light blend modes, is recommended. However, this is not a requirement. You may have a camera that takes multiple exposures of 2 or 3 or none at all; this is fine, there is still much to learn. Feel free to contact an instructor for clarification.
  • recommended lenses include wide angle, mid range and telephoto zooms. Specialty lenses, such as fisheye and macro, are optional. 
  • tripod.
