Course Description

Your best photographs are the most personal and intimate ones. Photography is not only a potent and direct means for communicating with others, it also can be a powerful tool for self-discovery and provide you with rich, meaningful imagery.

Being on a photographic journey means that you are part visual poet, part private investigator, as you learn to identify and photograph the subjects you want to better understand — in addition to creating photographs that also help you grow as an individual.

In this new and thoughtful online workshop led by fine-art photographer Jason Langer, we seek to refine the unique subject matter as well as the personal vision of each participant. We discover how to make dynamic, personal photographs as part of one’s daily lifestyle, using tools of self and artistic discovery that will serve you for a lifetime.

Together we look at the works of photographers who have taken on this growth/ investigator approach to create some of the most iconic photographs from the history of photography. These inspirational sources help us develop finer expressions of our own ideas. Ultimately, this photographic journey with Jason leads us to self-discovery and new paths.

Jason Langer

Jason Langer is known for his positive and encouraging instructing style, often motivating students to recognize and move past their own limitations to dig into deeper stores of creativity and expression. He excels in helping each student discover and highlight their technical and aesthetic strengths and abilities and help them find their core photographic narrative.

Jason is best known for his long-term photographic projects. His photographs often ruminate on enigmatic universal ideas stemming from his Jewish upbringing and Buddhist and Jungian concepts.

Supported by grants from The Ford Family Foundation, The Joy of Giving Something Foundation, The Oregon Arts Commission, and The Wood Institute, Jason’s photographs are held in permanent collections such as the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Yale University Art Gallery, Zimmerli Art Museum, and Sir Elton John, Sir Mick Jagger, International Photography Hall of Fame and Museum, and are represented or distributed by CLAMP (NYC), Galerie Esther Woerdehoff (Paris), and Gilman Contemporary (Sun Valley, ID).
