The most important skill that visual communicators can develop is learning to understand and focus on what it is that the photographer is trying to say with his or her images. Over the years, Phil Borges has used the vehicle of the environmental portrait and short biographies to raise and air issues that he cares about. Phil likes exploring an issue through the personal stories of the individuals involved.
This workshop will explore the process of building a photographic project from initial conception, to creation, and finally distribution through exhibits, books, and multimedia on the Internet. Phil will share his experience in developing the initial and final concept, in addition to finding partners to help finance and distribute the final product. Discussions will include lighting techniques and how to approach and create rapport with subjects. The weekend will be divided among lectures, demonstrations, making and evaluating environmental portraits, and class critiques. Phil will also spend one-on-one time discussing each student?s work and the direction he or she would like to take.
“I think the people who will get the most out of this workshop are photographers that would like to do a personal project (book, exhibition, film) especially one with a social or environmental theme,” says Phil Borges. “The class is meant to inspire, even if the individual is starting out.”
