Expand the way you approach stories about the world around you! Learn how to prepare strategically and mentally so that you’re in the best possible position to tell a documentary story. Class time will include on-location shooting and visits, as well as critiques, troubleshooting, and brainstorming. We’ll also explore the work of other documentary photographers, and delve into the sequencing of images so that you learn how to best share your work with the communities you document. Whether an advanced student or a beginner, bring a camera that you’re comfortable with, and an attitude that allows you to work out of your comfort zone.
