KEITH CARTER: The Poetry of Perception: Finding Your Voice

March 11 March 15

This in- person workshop is designed to elevate your sense of personal aesthetics, help you to discover, or renew your creative spirit, and to broaden the way you think about your individual photographic practice. There will be daily image making, critiques, and discussions around the creative aspects of photography.

Its purpose is to help serious amateur or professional photographers reconcile practical and creative lives, to re-examine your own creative process, and to explore the narrative, aesthetic, and emotional aspects of image making. When you leave, the objective is that each artist will be stronger, and more focused in their own creative life.

The goal is to help each participant find new paths to creative growth, develop or refine a sense of personal style, and to make serious amateur, fine art or commercial work more passionate and fulfilling. Also, please bring 8-10 images / prints for individual criquies sessions.

Three things that participants will walk away with upon completion of the class:
