With the simplification of photographic equipment, becoming a photographer has become more complex.
Finding artistic or professional expression through photography has become a confusing adventure. Cameras and processes have become homogenized. Everyone is taking the same photograph. In focus, well exposed and well framed images are within the reach of anyone with a camera. It is more and more difficult to emerge, to have a vision, to have an identity.
With over twenty years of teaching experience, we have created a new foundation for teaching photography. We have based our workshops on visual knowledge and cultural understanding. From how to use your digital equipment to be more than an enlightened consumer to seeing into the depths of visual meaning, this workshop will give you a new foundation for creating imagery.
We want you to be an image-thinker as well as an image-maker.
Whether you’re a lover of photography who has rarely created images or a working pro needing to rethink his or her stylistic growth, our Visual Foundation Workshop is a perfect start. We want you to view technology not as an obstacle but as an expressive means of creation. We will couple our actions with in-depth analysis and semiotics, using them as keys of knowledge to help you grow.
To build you need a foundation. To create, you need one as well.
Our Visual Foundation Workshop, designed especially for photographers and advanced amateurs, is just that, a new foundation. Come and see how thinking and doing can change the way you do both and how you can bring new understanding to your photography.
Three full days to change the way you see and the way you understand imagery: daily informal meetings, lectures, shootings and analysis.
