Description

This photography workshop is not about making “pretty” pictures or postcard-like records of our travels. It is about making a deeper, more authentic connection to the world around us, then learning to express that connection through our photography.

We use land, sky, and water, as well as ourselves, to transform an emotional experience into a visual one. This workshop is about making—not taking—photographs by nourishing a deepening in ourselves, and then bringing that awareness into our photo-making process. We work on giving our photos more layers of meaning to make stronger, more powerful images.

Inspiration is sparked by a comprehensive balance of conversation, meditation, sharing photos, reviews of past work, critiques, writing exercises, readings, poetry, photo exercises, and in-class photo assignments.

This workshop is open to all levels; participants should have a good working knowledge of their camera and want to take their image-making to a more meaningful and personal level. Digital and film cameras, in all formats, are welcome.
