Online Learning Class via Zoom

In this six-week workshop, students will be able to learn the beginning stages of building a successful personal project to pitch to local publications. The top goal is for students to become confident in writing, researching, and photographing for their proposed projects.

Topics include:
– Learning visual tone
– Developing a cohesive story-line
– How to pitch an idea
– Making photos from a decolonized lens
– Writing with intention

This conversation-style class will include discussions, slide presentations, videos and portfolio critiques. We will also explore successful personal projects by photographers that helped land work with national and international publications.

Students are expected to have a complete visual representation of their project by the end of the course. Conversations with fellow peers throughout the courses will help and assist students as they develop ideas for their projects.
