I am so grateful to now be in the 12th year of my photography career. During this time, I nurtured and grew a successful portraiture business and made an award-winning transition into fine art photography. I have also had the incredible opportunity to teach and mentor hundreds of students along the way. Teaching and inspiring is something I am extremely passionate about and I'm excited to be offering three online courses, which can build upon one another or stand alone.
EMBRACING YOUR INNER ARTIST | 08 - 28 January 2018
Recognizing and embracing the artistry in your photography is what will eventually separate your work from the work of other photographers – it is what will make your photographs special, compelling and uniquely yours. In this course, Embracing Your Inner Artist, students will will begin to explore the relationship with their individual creativity and artistry more deeply. Students will reflect and critically think about their photography and who they are as an artist. Throughout this three-week course, I will encourage you to dig deep within yourself through daily lessons and discussions, along with weekly assignments. I will share personal examples, successes, failures and inspirations. This class is structured to be highly interactive so please come ready to share, with an open mind and heart.
PROJECT DEVELOPMENT & FINE ART | 12-25 February 2018
In this course, students will explore the process of developing a body of work and learn about the necessary skills to move into the world of fine art photography. Students will receive lessons on how to prepare and present a fine art portfolio, to include writing an artist statement, bio and curriculum vitae. Information regarding competitions, portfolio reviews and exhibiting will be discussed. Assignments will be given that will encourage students to reflect and critically think about their current photography journey and the stories they wish to tell. Throughout this two-week course, I will share detailed fine art photography information, while also assisting and guiding students with their individual creative projects. I will share personal examples of my journey from a portrait photographer to a fine art photographer. I will also feature and discuss established fine art photographers who have inspired me along the way.
