Class Description

Whether professional or amateur, photographers have persisted in using their cameras to pursue personal interests. Everything can be subject matter: political, humanitarian, abstract and personal. This workshop will focus new subjects or old ideas into long-term photo essays  based on subjects found in East Boston or other areas of Boston you may choose to focus on.

Whether your strengths are photojournalism, documentary, still life, or fine art, we will investigate how to harness aesthetics, logistics, marketing, and dissemination into a cohesive body of work.

This workshop will help you transition three-dimensional creativity into two-dimensional photographs using indepth research, evolving objectives, and improved images and will demonstrate how long-term projects can exist alongside your normal photographic practice to become the focal point for exhibitions, books, social media, and/or grants.

During two intensive sessions with in-studio instruction, roundtable discussion, on-location street shooting sessions, and homework assignments, you will be introduced to the skills necessary to inaugurate a relevant photographic adventure of street documentary photography.
