Online Tuition - Working with Projects
Working with Projects - 1 Year Course (online, Zoom, 1-2-1 tuition)
Suitable for photographers of any level from beginner to expert/professional.
As photographers, the chances are that at some point you’re going to want to collate your work into some kind of themed project. It is very rewarding to tell a story from a nicely thought out series of images, which form a coherent body of work. All of the projects that I have worked on have been published in the leading photographic press, much to my own surprise. I put this down to many reasons, which I will discuss during this 1 year project, consisting of 6 online sessions. Over the years I have had the opportunity to discuss my thoughts on photography and aesthetics, beginning with regular talks at the UK Photography Show, and, more recently, lecturing at the very highest level as Visiting Professor at Musashino Art University, Tokyo. For me, teaching has become an incredibly rewarding conduit for sharing my knowledge and passion for photography and I'm excited to be offering this online course.
6 x Zoom sessions at two monthly intervals, plus online support.
Session 1 (90 mins) - Introduction to Working with Projects. I will discuss three of my own major projects which have been published. We will then discuss ideas for the student's own project.
Session 2 (60 mins) - Creating a strong coherent theme. Having chosen your subject during session 1, it's time for the first review of the images that you have made during the elapsed time. This first consultation of your images will aim to really solidify your theme, enabling you to progress with confidence.
Session 3 (60 mins) - Developing an Aesthetic. Setting creative boundaries during the editing and post-processing stage.
Session 4 (90 mins) - Mid-term project review. Discussion, critique and guidance.
Session 5 (90 mins) - Sequencing. Selecting the strongest images from the student's project, essential sequencing techniques and use of additional texts to support your series narrative.
Session 6 (90 mins) - Final Review. A full appraisal of the project with constructive feedback, advice on best practise of displaying and submitting the project for publication.
