Friday, Dec. 13 + Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013
International House Hotel
Workshop Fee: $250
Class Limit: 12 | Register here
What is your photographic purpose? Why are you photographing? What do you want to express? Who is your audience? These and other issues will be explored in this intimate two-day workshop, led by Sally Gall, which offers an ideal opportunity to get constructive feedback, hone your mission as a photographer, and solidify your ideas about your work (or have them shaken!) Via prints and slideshows, the class will view student work and discuss formal/technical issues, editing, career opportunities, exhibition venues, commercial applications, and other topics relevant to the work presented and individual student’s needs. Please bring a body of work in print form; all formats are welcome. Please come prepared to talk about your own goals in photography, even if they are not fully formed. This class is open to anyone comfortably past the beginning stage. Be prepared for intense thinking, talking, and looking!
For the first day of class you will need to bring a portfolio of 10-20 photographs. It can be your strongest work, your favorite work, your most current work; whatever is the most important to you.
