Defining a Personal Vision is a workshop designed to recognize and bring out the expression and individual voice of each student. Most (if not all) photographers go through periods when they “hit a wall” visually. Sometimes we need help seeing exactly what our pictures are about; how do we improve, what do the pictures mean? Over the course of six classes students will be provided with both the time and guidance that will foster a solid body of work. The workshop consists of 5 classes where the students will participate in a series of critiques and exercises and the in the sixth present their work in book form. Each week guidance through both group discussions and one-on-one discussions with the instructor will focus on developing their own visual voice. At the end of the workshop, the students will have been guided through producing a personal portfolio of new work and gain deeper insight into their own personal vision and expression.
