“Eccentric: deviating from the recognized or customary practice; unconventional.”
One of most enriching and exciting ways to grow as both photographer and artist, is to learn the history of your medium, of your art. In this unusual, and highly original course taught by gifted educator/photographer/orator Keith Carter, you discover both famous and little-known iconoclasts — men and women who historically pushed the limits of the photographic arts to new heights.
For three different presentations on three different days, come and explore historical figures in the history of photography who pushed boundaries and conventions, and expanded our visual vocabulary. If your goal is to elevate your work, then consider elevating your thinking by broadening your definition of what constitutes “creative work.” Join Keith Carter on a free spirited and enjoyable journey of discovery.
A 10 to 15 minute Question and Answer session follows each daily presentation. Questions from the participants will be reviewed and a few selected during this informal wrap-up conversation.
Open to anyone interested in this special program.
Class will meet from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. Mountain Time, June 30, July 1, and July 2 (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday). You can participate in this seminar even if you can’t make one or all of the live events. Paid participants will have 24 hours to access the online presentations.
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. If the video quality for a particular online experience is not up to our standards, we will work to post a higher-quality recording, online, for your review shortly after the live event concludes.
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.
