Zen in art of photography – The creative process.
One of the major things I missed whilst giving my workshops online was the conversation. It really is hard, certainly for me, to have a good conversation with a group through the internet. So, I’m excited to get back to live workshops particularly as my workshops are really just conversations. I am a great believer that we learn best by participating and sharing with like-minded people. Good conversation is a perfect method and hopefully, it will give you an entirely new way of looking at yourself and your work as a visual storyteller.
Some of the subjects we’ll talk through are, why do we make photographs and what is the difference between taking and making a photograph – what makes an artist – the artist as a storyteller and being literate as a visual storyteller – choosing our subject and our relationship with it – how important is intuition and what does it tell us about ourselves, what are we thinking about when we make a photograph. Like any good conversation, it will take on a life of its own and will cover many more subjects that will inspire and excite you to make photographs.
My role in this is just as a guide taking you through a journey because there are certain things no one can teach you. Hopefully, though, new doors will open giving you the opportunity to explore.
Attendees need to bring:
- 3-4 prints (size not important)
