I'm thrilled to be running a seven-week workshop with the irrepressible Morganna Magee in February and March 2017. Over seven weeks, we'll mentor ten participants as they learn make then exhibit a new body of work that focuses on personal, intimate and emotive storytelling.
Details are below, if you're interested or want to know more, please don't hesitate to contact us on email@example.com
Update (4 Jan, 2017): Two exciting developments to my original post. We're thrilled to be able to offer one person a scholarship for the workshop. We're also very happy to announce a partnership with UNLESS YOU WILL, giving our workshop participants half-priced tickets to the conference. Details below x
This workshop is about visual storytelling in intimate, personal way. We will hone skills in conceptualising, making and editing documentary narratives that evoke emotion, empathy and connection between subject and audience. What photographic story a participant wants to tell is up to them, but it must involve at least one person and must be able to be photographed within the seven-week workshop period. We’ll also look broadly at contemporary documentary photography as a genre, drawing inspiration from some of today’s most innovative storytellers.
In four workshop sessions participants will learn:
- Documentary narrative storytelling approaches
- Access, trust, ethics and relationships in making stories about people
- Editing and sequencing photographic projects for exhibition
Participant’s stories will be exhibited at the conclusion of the workshop at a one-night celebratory show. Friends and family are welcome to attend.
Who’s it for?
The workshop is open for photographers at the start of their career, photography students, or advanced enthusiasts. It is suitable for photographers who want to challenge themselves to make a new body of work about a person or human-interest subject. Participants may photograph on any type of camera (DSLR, analog, mobile phone) but should be aware workshop will not cover technical skills or camera functions.
