Creative non-fiction photographers are authors who seek to truthfully represent their subjects. This workshop helps students unite the two goals of personal expression and rigorous documentation within their practice. By completing a project and looking closely at the work of classic and contemporary photographers such as Nina Berman, Evgenia Arbugaeva, Matt Black and Gilles Peress, students learn to identify and develop a visual vocabulary that defines their own voice in a documentary vein. This course is limited to 12 students.

Courses are subject to minimum enrollment. Please register early, within five days of the start-date, to reduce the likelihood of course cancellation and to ensure you receive all course-related materials in time to prepare for class.

Prerequisite: Intermediate: You are familiar with a camera, whether film or digital. You understand aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, histograms, and how to control focus. You are comfortable editing and processing your images. You may want to learn how to utilize your camera in a more thoughtful and articulate way, or learn more about lighting or how to utilize theoretical concepts in relation to your portfolio of work.
