Course Description

The goal of this legendary workshop—rarely offered and always sold out—is to help serious photographers, both professional and advanced amateurs, jump-start the process of taking your work to the next level. It is designed to motivate you to identify obstacles, clarify your work, and take the steps necessary to revitalize your career and photographic life.

Working with renowned photographer and teacher Sam Abell, participants edit their existing portfolios and generate new work. In addition to an intensive daily program of editing and photographic assignments, our schedule includes in-depth, one-on-one and group portfolio sessions with Sam, and field trips to photographers' studios, galleries, publishing houses, and photo bookstores. Throughout the workshop, each individual seeks to answer two essential questions: "What is a well-lived photographic life?” and “How do I achieve it?" The durable result of this immersion in photography is a leaner, finer approach to working, editing, and carrying projects and careers forward to the next level.

Growth is essential to both a well-made career and a well-lived life. Are you ready to take the next photographic step, personally and professionally? Participants in this workshop should have enough of an established path in photography that, through their work and words, they can share with one another the road they have traveled so far, their dreams, and their future destinations.
