As photographers, we all have started projects that are asking to be finished. Now is a good time to unearth one of these “beginnings” and push it through to a final body of work. Honing a new or existing body of work is far less challenging when working collectively in a well-organized group of passionate photographers.
This online workshop with fine-art photographer, Susan Burnstine, gives each participant the skills to create an intentional and dynamic portfolio. Each class begins with a thoughtful presentation covering creating sequencing with intent, artist statements, and final portfolio refinement. These information-packed sessions are followed by weekly reviews of students’ individual projects. Participants also work together in this collaborative environment and learn how to talk about their work with the group while personally benefiting from Susan’s experience and wisdom putting projects and portfolios together.
Weekly assignments focus on individual portfolio development processes. The last class on June 21 culminates in final portfolio reviews by Susan.
By the end of the four weeks, students have the skills needed to create a unique, intentional, and thoughtful portfolio of images.
Participants must be able to select and organize images using image editing software for class sessions.
Class will meet 10:45 am – 1:15 pm (Mountain Time) on Tuesdays starting May 31 and ending June 21 (four online group sessions). Enrollment is limited to 10 participants.
Zoom Video Conferencing software (available for no charge from Zoom.com) will be used to facilitate the class sessions. Further details will be emailed to registrants.
Santa Fe Workshops always aims to produce a high-quality experience for our online attendees. That said, variables including regional and local internet provider speeds, traffic on Zoom's servers, and your own computing hardware can contribute to a less than ideal streaming event. While we do our best to minimize the impact of these variables, they are outside the control of Santa Fe Workshops.
For the convenience of participants, recordings of each class session are posted privately for two weeks after the end of each session. Santa Fe Workshops takes the recordings down after two weeks to protect the intellectual property of our instructors.
