Are you reaching your creative potential?

Course Objectives: The aim of this course is to provide a framework for participants to develop their skills of creative expression – through the medium of photography – and nurture their identity as artists/photographers capable of high-level craftsmanship and well-defined purpose in the creation of meaningful photographs.

This course will feature customized, one-to-one instruction along with regular meetings (about twice a month but not more than 20 over a one-year period) where all participants will show and critique each other’s work and help develop a personal project in a supportive and stimulating environment. Each meeting will also feature a short lesson in advanced technique suited to the interests of participants and an introduction to the technique and contribution of a selected grand master of photography.
