Refining a body of work can be a long-term project. Unifying aesthetics such as point of view, treatment and presentation all demand attention.

We will explore the Craft of Raw Image Development and editing for critical digital development/editing strategies and refining a look and feel. Our goal will be to help you define an aesthetic for your work and to identify and assist you with the technical processes to achieve your personal sense of beauty.

As we are also in an age where photographs in book form can dramatically accelerate the success and buy-in on a body of work, we will explore Print on Demand prep and execution. The empowerment that can come from having a “book” in hand is hard to overemphasize.

Portfolios are another critical component of photographic presentation. WE will explore portfolio production including box design, Artist Statements and editions.

Field trips include mini-project development, putting into practice some of the discussions covered during the week.
