Inspiration & Visual Literacy for Photography

Book Now (http://weteachme.com/l/1dgDKRMr)


See farther from the shoulders of giants.

Being able to consistently find inspiration is the most crucial skill you need to make captivating photographs.

In this relaxed, conversational class we’ll drink from the well of the most genre-defining (and defying) masters of photography through a guided immersion into 100+ years of arresting and inspirational single images, photo-essays and photobooks.

We’ll track the course of the most innovative contributions to photography and deconstruct what makes them work.

We’ll touch on black and white, the birth of colour, a range of film formats and camera types, the digital revolution, the poetic, the representational, the decisive and the suggestive; stand alone images that tell stories, epic photo essays and creative book sequences. That is, the best work that defines, blurs and transcends photojournalism, documentary, travel, street, landscape, portraiture, fine art and typological photography.

It was a proverb more eloquent than ‘snooze you lose’ for a victim made chairless. He said it swooping on my spot by the fire, quick–grinning in the flickering light and clutching his rusted prize with tight, tiny knuckles.
