Gumbo Ya-Ya with Keith Carter
Would you like to develop a personal style, strengthen your original vision, and broaden the way you think about photography? This weekend workshop will help serious amateur and professional photographers find more passion in their work by exploring the narrative, aesthetic, and emotional aspects of image making. Through studying the work of both historically significant and little known photographers, group discussions, a shooting assignment, and individual portfolio reviews, we will refine our views on the creative photographic process. Everyone is encouraged to bring a sense of humor and a sense of purpose; wise-asses, hotshots and burnouts are all welcome.
Class size will be limited to 14 participants.
December 8 & 9, 2007
9am – 3pm each day
